John Carpenter's Tales of Science Fiction

John Carpenter is the Master of Horror. And as the master he seeks to control all phases of horror entertainment. Known the world over for his theatrical classics like Halloween, The Thing, Escape from New York, and more, Carpenter released an album in 2014, and is dabbling in the world of comic books and graphic novels with the Asylum books released for Storm King Productions, a production company run by Carpenter and his wife Sandy King Carpenter.

Now Carpenter seeks to take over television, signing a development deal with Universal Cable Productions (UCP) where he will executive produce scripted programming, UCP announced today. Horror is as explosive a genre on TV right now across basic cable, premium channels, and streaming. Shows like The Walking Dead, Ash vs Evil Dead, American Horror Story, Preacher, Blood Drive, and more are dominating the ratings and getting renewed season after season, and so who better than Carpenter to get directly involved.

Syfy has ordered a pilot episode for a potential TV series based on the monster movie franchise Tremors. The series, as we learned when its development was first announced a couple of years back, comes from Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Television.

The news was confirmed by Kevin Bacon, who’s set to executive produce and star in the series, reprising his role as Valentine McKee. Bacon played the role in the 1990 original movie, but did not return for any of the four sequels that have been produced since then.

Fritz Lang's Metropolis

The 1927 silent film Metropolis, directed by Fritz Lang, was one of the first feature films in the science fiction genre, and is considered to be one of the best ever made.

Now a new take on the movie is on the way, but it’s not coming to the big screen. Sam Esmail, the creator of the hit series Mr. Robot, is currently developing a TV miniseries adaptation of Metropolis for Universal Cable Productions, where he has an overall deal.

Kevin Bacon to star in Tremors TV show

Twenty-five years ago, long after the Cold War gave us an entire generation of giant monster movies; a crew met out in the middle of the desert (or the town of Perfection, Nevada) to make Tremors. On a budget of about $11 million, director Ron Underwood helped created one of the coolest and most original monster movies in years. A young, fresh out of the awesome 80’s Kevin Bacon played Valentine “Val” McKee, and Fred Ward was his slightly older, slightly wiser partner Earl. Together, they find themselves in the middle of a mess, when giant underground creatures dubbed”Grabboids” with tentacled tongues that pull their victims in swarm the town. With the help of a rag tag crew, including a young pretty seismologist Rhonda (Finn Carter), and married gun nuts Burt and Heather (Michael Gross & Reba McEntire), they defend the town from these creatures, while spouting hilarious one-liners from a script from the duo of S.S. Wilson & Brent Maddox. The movie holds a special place in my heart as well as the hearts of young 80s kids yearning for some fun scares. The special effects hold up and the Grabboids were awesome practical monsters, some of the last before Spielberg changed the game with Jurassic Park in 1993, and CG became the way of the future.

Why are we discussing a quarter century year old classic? Because Tremors, complete with Val himself, is returning to the screen… the small screen.

More on this below.
