Are you ready to revisit the classic slasher thriller, I Know What You Did Last Summer? The movie that sent chills down your spine and made you double check your locks at night is back and better than ever!
Sony Pictures is in the process of developing a legacy sequel to the cult classic, with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. in talks to return. It’s a horror fan’s dream come true, and we can’t wait to see what this new installment will bring.
The original I Know What You Did Last Summer was based on the novel of the same name and followed a group of young adults who find themselves stalked by a hook-wielding killer after they cover up a murder. The movie was a box office success and has since gained a cult following.
The legacy sequel will be helmed by Do Revenge’s Jennifer Kaytin Robinson and written by Leah McKendrick, with Neal H. Moritz in talks to produce. It’s said to be a “passing of the torch” story from the original cast to a new generation of characters.
The trend of legacy sequels has been growing in popularity in recent years, with films like 2018’s Halloween and 2022’s Scream helping to popularize the concept. The Jordan Peele-produced Candyman legacy sequel was also met with better reviews than the original and modest box office numbers.
We can only hope that Sony’s I Know What You Did Last Summer legacy sequel will achieve the same success as these other horror franchises. Until then, you can watch the original streaming on Netflix to get in the mood for the upcoming sequel.
