It’s time to return to the good old days of 90’s slasher horror with Amazon’s modern take on 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer, which recently got greenlit to be produced as a series for the streaming platform.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sara Goodman (Preacher, Gossip Girl) will be writing and executive producing the horror series for Amazon Studios and Sony Picture TV. The film will feature the same premise as the original movie adaptation where a group of four teenagers find themselves getting stalked by a mysterious killer after covering up a car accident a year prior that left a man dead.
“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 TV 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.”
“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,” added 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.”
Goodman will be executive producing the film alongside Shay Hatten, who was previously on the team as a writer, Original Film’s Moritz and Pavun Shetty, Erik Feig and Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Rob Hackett and Michael Clear.
