The “I Know What You Did Last Summer” movie, back in 1996, is one of those old slasher films which still hold its scare value even after being out there in public for almost two decades; subtract the very laughable sequel “I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer” (IKWYDLS) back in 2006, of course. Now after almost 20 years, the movie, according to Sony, will be having a reboot and is set to hit the cinemas in 2016. What can we expect from the 90’s fright movie? Read on for more details.
Released just a year after the iconic horror movie “Scream,” the “IKWYDLS” shocker film help further improve the careers of stars some of its stars like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Freddie Prinze Jr.. This reboot then would be a great opportunity for those upcoming or young actors to star in. Sadly, the only confirmed cast of the movie is Josh Scott Bentley who will be playing as Collin Finn, as posted on IMDB.
Though there are reports saying that producers of the film are currently eyeing either Lucy Hale (“Scream 4”), Victoria Justice (“Fun Size”), or Selena Gomez (“Get Away”) to play as Julie James, the lead actress of the flick, as reported by Inquisitr.
For its director, though it still isn’t confirmed, rumors say that Breck Eisner will direct the reboot. Eisner previously helmed the zombie-themed film “The Crazies,” back in 2010, and the action-thriller “The Last Witch Hunter” starring Vin Diesel.
Will the plot stay close to the 1997 film or to Julia Duncan’s Novel?
No news of that yet but the screenwriter for the film is said to be “Oculus” writer Mike Flanagan as reported by EmpireOnline.
“I Know What You Did Last Summer” reboot is set to be released on May 20, 2016.
