Amazon Studios has given a series greenlight to YA horror series I Know What You Did Last Summer, a modern take on the hit 1997 slasher film. The project is a collaboration with Sony Pictures Television and Original Film.
I Know What You Did Last Summer, produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures TV, had been in development for a couple of years. Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz, who produced the 1997 movie for Columbia Pictures, has been the main driver behind the project, which went through multiple incarnations. Last year, James Wan and his Atomic Monster boarded the series.
Goodman executive produces alongside Shay Hatten, who was previously attached as a writer, Original Film’s Moritz and Pavun Shetty and Atomic Monster’s Wan, Rob Hackett and Michael Clear.
“We are thrilled to have I Know What You Did Last Summer with our incredible partners at Amazon Studios,”
said Jason Clodfelter, Co-President, 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.”
I Know What You Did Last Summer extends Goodman’s relationship with Original Film and Sony TV after most recently serving as executive producer on their AMC series Preacher.
The 1997 movie was written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Jim Gillespie. It starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr..
A new Blu-Ray set of the original trilogy is now available to pre-order from Amazon
