'The Conjuring' creator is making an 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' TV series
There's no doubt that 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' is one of the best and scariest slasher horror films of the 90s. Coming right after Wes Craven reinvented the genre with Scream, this star-studded (the original cast included Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Ryan Phillippe) feature came out of nowhere to frighten the living daylights out of audiences all over the world.
The movie tells the story of a group of friends driving home while inebriated from a beach party, who hit a fisherman and leave his body on the side of the road. The four teens dispose of the body and agree to keep the accident a secret amongst themselves.
Check out the original trailer for I Know What You Did Last Summer in the video below:
But as it turns out, somebody saw what they did, and one year later they enact their vengeance, first with a phone call to deliver the ominous message: "I know what you did last summer." After that, a rain-slicker-clad figure wielding a hook begins stalking them, and then the bodies start piling up.
The movie later had three sequels, but none were as successful as the first. However, now James Wan, the creator of the Conjuring franchise and director of Aquaman and Saw, has announced that he's intending on making an I Know What You Did Last Summer TV series, which will premiere on Amazon Prime.
In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Wan appeared to confirm this news when he stated that he will not be directing the sequel to DC's Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa. Wan stated: "I think I kinda know [what I want to direct next] … It won’t be Aquaman 2 just yet. I have something else I’m cooking up. I’m not ready to share just yet."
Per NME, they state that the original franchise's producer Neal H Moritz will play a part in producing the new Amazon series.
Man, I can't wait to see how Wan adapts this classic movie. I have a feeling it will be super-creepy!
