The Hollywood actor starred in the 1990 movie about giant killer worms, and now he's taking on the role of handyman Valentine MCKee again for an upcoming TV series.

Bacon will also executive produce the show, along with horror filmmaker Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions and executives at Universal Cable Productions.

Tremors only grossed $16.6 million (£10.4 million) in the U.S. box office but later became a cult hit when it was released on video, spawning direct-to-video sequels.
