The famed 90s horror flick, I Know What You Did Last Summer, is officially getting the series adaptation treatment over at Amazon.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon Studios has ordered a brand new young adult series based on the hit 1997 horror movie, I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Described as a modern take on the 90s classic, the forthcoming series, as with the movie, is based off of author Louis Duncan’s
1973 novel of the same name.
The show will similarly follow a group of teenagers as they’re hunted by a mysterious killer who crops up one year following a fatal accident that takes place on the night of their graduation.
Behind the scenes, the studio has tapped Preacher vet, Sarah Goodman, to serve as writer and executive producer om the series.
Meanwhile, Amazon is teaming with Sony Pictures TV to bring the series to life. Sony’s Columbia Pictures was original studio behind the 1997 film which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr., so it makes sense that they’re also involved with the series adaptation.
In a statement announcing the I Know What You Did Last Summer series, Sony Pictures TV Studios co-president, Jason Clodfelter spoke of how excited they are to bring the show to life.
“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 Sarah Goodman’s contemporary and pulsating character weaving suspense thriller.”
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect the I Know What You Did Last Summer series to debut via Amazon.
