Amazon Studios has given green light to the series adaptation of the horror film “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which came out in 1997.
The Young-Adult series is very similar to the 1997 horror film. In a town full of secrets, a group of teenagers is stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night. Like the film, the project is based on the 1973 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan.
Sara Goodman will write and executive produce. Shay Hatten, Erik Feig, Original Film’s Neal Moritz, and Pavan Shetty, and Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Rob Hackett and Michael Clear will also executive produce. Sony Pictures Television will serve as the studio.
“The best horror franchises always have another scare coming, and this ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ series from Sara Goodman is a perfectly twisted update to the iconic slasher movie,” said Albert Cheng, COO, and co-head of television for Amazon Studios. “Any way you slice it, our global Prime Video customers will love this modern take on the fan-favorite film.”
“We are thrilled to have ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ with our incredible partners at Amazon Studios,” said Jason Clodfelter, co-president of Sony Pictures Television Studios. “Neal Moritz and Original Films’ development consistently fires on all cylinders and that is proven once again with Sara Goodman’s contemporary and pulsating character weaving suspense thriller.”
The 1997 movie was written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Jim Gillespie. It starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr. The hit slasher movie was followed by two sequels: I Still Know What You Did Last Summer in 1998 and the direct-to-video I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer in 2006.
