It’s been an interesting time to be a Tremors fan, considering the franchise has come back in full form over the last few years. While the pilot for a Tremors TV series featuring actor Kevin Bacon didn’t get picked up, the movie franchise is still finding a way to continue with direct-to-video sequels. This now includes the upcoming film Tremors 7: Island Fury, and as you can see below, franchise star Michael Gross has shared the first official image of himself as Burt Gummer in the film.
It’s a massive change for how fans are used to seeing Burt Gummer, and it looks like Michael Gross is taking a completely new approach to the character’s style for Tremors 7: Island Fury. In fact, he looks like he’s been living out in the jungles for quite some time. Whether that turns out to be the case or not is yet to be seen, but one thing is for sure – Burt Gummer is totally rocking his new beard.
In the new film…
“The deadly Graboids are back, illegally brought in to a new island resort by a rich playboy looking for a trophy hunt.”
Don Michael Paul is directing the film following his work on Tremors 5: Bloodlines and Tremors 6: A Cold Day in Hell. The movie was written by Brian Brightly.
Aside from actor Michael Gross returning for another round as Graboid exterminator Burt Gummer, the cast for the film also features includes Richard Brake, Jon Heder, Caroline Langrishe, Jackie Cruz, Cassie Clare, Sahajak Boonthanakit, Matthew Douglas, Randy Kalsi, Bear Williams, David Assavanon, Boonma Lamphon, Aukrawut Rojaunawat, Owen Macrae, Iris Park and Mikey Black.
The film should hopefully still make its release date scheduled for later this year around October. With that release date in mind, hopefully we’ll also be seeing a trailer for Tremors 7: Island Fury very soon. Then we can finally see this version of Burt Gummer in action!
