“Scream” did it on MTV, now fellow 90’s teen slasher “I Know What You Did Last Summer” is getting a television series on Amazon Prime.
The show will follow in the bloody footsteps of the movie, in which a group of teenagers is stalked by a killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night, but put a modern spin on the material.
Sara Goodman (Preacher, Gossip Girl) is writing and executive producing the show, which comes from Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures TV. Sony’s Columbia Pictures released the film, which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. and grossed $125 million worldwide.
“We are thrilled to have I Know What You Did Last Summer with our incredible partners at Amazon Studios,” said Sony Pictures TV Studios co-president Jason Clodfelter. “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.”
Along with Goodman, executive producers are Shay Hatten, Original Film’s Moritz and Pavun Shetty, Erik Feig and Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Rob Hackett and Michael Clear.
I Know What You Did is one of a host of Amazon series based on well-known IP, ranging from Jack Ryan and Bosch to The Boys to the forthcoming Lord of the Rings.
