“So sad to hear about Fred Ward. When it came to battling underground worms, I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. I will always remember chatting about his love of Django Reinhardt and jazz guitar during our long, hot days in the high desert. Rest In Peace, Fred,” Bacon said on Twitter.
Bacon and Ward teamed on the 1990 film, which became a fan favorite thanks to incessant replays on cable after bombing at the box office. Tremors was about the small desert town of Perfection, Nevada, which has enormous worm-like monsters killing anyone who ventures onto their turf.
