Seventeen summers ago this slasher flick, based off of a 1973 Lois Duncain book, graced our screens. Today news came out that Sony Pictures is planning to reboot it.
Sony has enlisted “Oculus” director and co-writer Mike Flanagan to rewrite the new “I Know What You Did Last Summer” film, alongside Jeff Howard. Neal Moritz, who has worked on the original version, has reprised his producing duties. The studio is yet to confirm the identity of the new director.
The original “I Know What You Did Last Summer” starred Freddie Prince Jr, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillipe. The story centred around four teenage friends who found themselves stalked by a vicious killer, exactly one year after they covered up fatally running over a man. The movie was a massive hit, which resulted in a sequel a year later too.
No news so far as to which actors and actresses the studio has their eye on, but it would be fantastic if some of the originals could make an appearance in the reboot.
“I Know What You Did Last Summer” is set to hit cinemas in 2016.
