It’s the golden age of sequels and, while the classics are often untouchable, this rule is being broken more and more. I Know What You Did Last Summer is the latest classic horror movie that looks like it’s going to be adapted to our days. Do you want to know more? Keep reading!
Here we go!
According to Deadline, Sony Pictures is considering a reboot of I Know What You Did Last Summer, the classic ’90s film, adapting it for today’s times. The project is still in the earliest stages of development but we know some details about it.
Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, the screenwriter of Do Revenge, recently released on Netflix, will be in charge of directing the I Know What You Did Last Summer reboot intending to give it a fresher look, assimilating it to our time. In addition, the franchise’s original stars Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr., along with producer Neal H. Moritz, are in talks to reprise their roles.
I Know What You Did Last Summer’s original Movie was an undeniable success at the box office. So much so, that a few years later its sequel was released, which was also very successful. Although all that glitters is not gold. Prime Video made its own version of the film in show format… but it was canceled after only one season.
However, the balance of the success of the films could not be more favorable and that, together with the recent sequels’ box office successes — yes, Scream, we are looking at you — seems to indicate that it’s quite likely that this project will succeed at Sony Pictures.
And we have mixed feelings. I Know What You Did Last Summer is a classic and it’s perfect just the way it is. However, we are willing to explore this new version hoping that it will be at least as good as the original.
