I remember loving these films when I was but a wee child.
In my opinion, I Know What You Did Last Summer is one of the few actually enjoyable teen slashers that followed the incredible success of Wes Craven's Scream. I actually really like teen slashers. But this one has always stood out amongst it's peers.
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar... does any film (besides American Pie) scream early 2000's more than that line up? I love it.
It has been officially announced that the franchise is coming back as a TV series on Amazon Prime! There were rumors about this last year, with James Wan attached. But now it has been confirmed that Sara Goodman of Preacher fame will be producing and writing the series.
James Wan was originally going to direct the pilot episode. But it hasn't been confirmed or denied whether or not he still is. However, he will still be producing!
According to THR:
“The show will share a premise with the movie, in which a group of teenagers is stalked by a killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night, but put a modern spin on the material.”
“We are thrilled to have I Know What You Did Last Summer with our incredible partners at Amazon Studios. Neal Moritz and Original Film’s development consistently fires on all cylinders and that is proven once again with Sara Goodman’s contemporary and pulsating character weaving suspense thriller.”
Said Sony Pictures TV Co-President.
