Syfy has ordered to pilot a reboot of the 1990 sci-fi film Tremors, the network said Monday.

The Universal Cable Productions pilot will feature actor Kevin Bacon reprising his role from the original film as Valentine McKee, who will once again be tasked with slaying killer Graboid worms bent on destroying a small town in Nevada, said the network.

Bacon will also executive produce the series along with Andrew Miller (The Secret Circle) and David Schiff (Southpaw) in association with Blumhouse Television. 

A Tremors spin-off series aired in 2003 on the then Sci Fi Channel and G4 Network.

"We are so pleased to continue our partnership with SYFY and UCP in reviving this cult classic with none other than Kevin Bacon as Valentine McKee; we look forward to thrilling original fans and new audiences alike," said Blumhouse founder Jason Blum in a statement.
