I Know What You Did Last Summer series in the works at Amazon
It joins Scream as another modern day adaptation of a classic 90s teen horror
Amazon has greenlit a I Know What You Did Last Summer TV series.
Its been described as “a modern take” on the hit 1997 slasher which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr as a group of friends being stalked by a hook handed killer a year after they committed a fatal hit-and-run.
Sara Goodman, who has previous credits on Amazon’s pulpy comic book adaptation Preacher and teen drama Gossip Girl, will write the series.
The search for a cast and director is currently underway.
“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 at Amazon Studios.
“Any way you slice it, our global Prime Video customers will love this modern take on the fan favourite film.”
The original film grossed $125 million worldwide and spawned two sequels I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer which were released in 1998 and 2006 respectively.
A premiere date for I Know What You Did Last Summer is not yet known.
