Sony Pictures is planning a reboot of the I Know What You Did Last Summer franchise, Deadline reports. Oculus writer and director Mike Flanagan will script, re-adaptating the original source material, the 1973 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan.
The 1997 film version, directed by Jim Gillespie with a script by Kevin Williamson, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze, Jr. as a group of high school students who accidentally hit and kill a man with their car one night. Although they believe they have successfully covered up their crime, the group finds themselves at the receiving end of a slasher killer’s serial rampage one year later.
I Know What You Did Last Summer was followed by a theatrical sequel, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer in 1998 and a direct-to-video third film, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, in 2006.
Neal Moritz will produce I Know What You Did Last Summer alongside Flanagan and Jeff Howard.
