A Tremors television reboot is in the works, with Kevin Bacon on board to star and executive produce, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions are said to be working together to revive the franchise, which started with a cult film about giant, tunneling worms. The franchise continued through a series of direct-to-video sequels and a previous 13-episode TV series.

Bacon starred in the original film, and is returning to the franchise after 25 years. He’ll reprise his role as Valentine McKee, who returns to the town of Perfection, Nevada.

The new Tremors TV series is being written by Andrew Miller.
