Mike Flanagan takes on the remake for I Know What You Did Last Summer

While we’re still letting the news of Adam Wingard directing the I SAW THE DEVIL remake settle in, Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures is going to reboot, of all movies, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. Yes, this is actually happening.

The original 1997 film—which was based on Lois Duncan’s novel—certainly had its moments, delivering some solid B-movie slasher elements, but I still kind of hate it. And by kind of I mean I hate it a lot. It's just so... blah. The original film raked in $125M worldwide, spawning a sequel the very next year, so there’s definitely money to be made with this one, especially if they keep the budget low. It's a smart move by Sony, that's for sure.

The good news, if there is any, is that it will be written and produced by OCULUS director Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard alongside Neal Moritz, who produced the original film. Other than that, though, there really isn’t much info to go on. There's not even a director attached yet.

The original film centers around four teens who dump a stranger's body into the sea after hitting him with their car. Smooth move, guys. Smooth move. I'm going to go smash my head into a wall now.

Jennifer Love Hewitt starred in I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER
