That's a wrap! Star Michael Gross has revealed that Tremors 7 has finished filming. The seventh installment of the long-running creature-filled franchise had been shooting in Thailand but now it's in the books, which means we're poised to see some new Graboid action coming our way in 2020. In addition to revealing that filming has wrapped up, Gross also shared a final set photo.
Michael Gross shared the update to his Facebook page. The photo features the actor, who plays the gun-loving Burt Gummer, a role he's played since the original was released in 1990. The photo sees Gross gathered together with many of his fellow cast members, including Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder, who is getting in on the action this time around. Gross shared the photo with the following caption.
"That's a Wrap!!! Tremors 7 has completed filming in Thailand, and here are a few of the cast and production team who made it possible, led by director Don Michael Paul in the white shirt on the left. Thank you all!!! #tremorsfilm #tremors7 #film #thatsawrap"
Tremors 7, officially titled Tremors: Island Fury, centers on Graboids that have been illegally brought in to a new island resort by a rich playboy as a dangerous form of trophy hunting. So it seems they're going for a Burt Gummer spin on The Most Dangerous Game for this one. The cast includes Richard Brake (3 From Hell), Caroline Langrishe (Judge John Deed), Jackie Cruz (Orange is the New Black), Cassie Clare (What Happened to Monday), Sahajak Boonthanakit (Only God Forgives), Matthew Douglas (Outlander), Randy Kalsi (Vampire Reborn), David Assavanon (The Protector), Boonma Lamphon (Rambo), Iris Park, Aukrawut Rojaunawat and Bear Williams.
Brian Brightly (Inside Man: Most Wanted, Home Run) penned the screenplay, with Don Michael Paul (Kindergarten Cop 2, Death Race 4: Beyond Anarchy) in the director's chair. Paul also helmed the previous two installments of the series, 2015's Bloodlines and 2018's A Cold Day In Hell. Jamie Kennedy, who played Burt Gummer's son in both of those movies, will not be returning to reprise his role in this entry.
Tremors was initially released in 1990 and starred Kevin Bacon in the lead role. It wasn't exactly a huge hit at the time, but has gained a following over the years. Bacon hasn't returned to the franchise, though he did film a pilot for SyFy that wasn't picked up to series last year. Michael Gross, on the other hand, has appeared in every single sequel to date, as well as the previous TV series. A release date for the movie hasn't been set yet, but it's expected to arrive sometime in 2020. We'll be sure to keep you posted as any further details on Tremors 7 are made available.
