I Know What You Did Last Summer TV Series in the Works at Amazon, with James Wan Directing

A television show based on the late '90s slasher looks to be moving forward.

Some very interesting horror news slipped under the radar this week as it has been confirmed that a television series based on I Know What You Did Last Summer is going into production at Amazon. Deadline reported yesterday that producer Neal Moritz has inked a new deal with Sony Pictures Television, which includes developing new properties for network, cable, and streaming platforms. Among those projects is an Amazon series based on the late '90s slasher.

As you may or may not recall, Moritz produced the film franchise when it kicked off in 1997, making this project quite a nice fit for him. The first film follows a group of teens who kill a pedestrian in a car accident, opting to cover up the incident instead of alerting the authorities. They hide the body and vow to never speak of the death again, but when a hook-wielding killer begins stalking them one by one a year later, it becomes apparent that these teens aren't the only ones who know what happened.

The upcoming television series is described as a young-adult horror series based on the film franchise and has none other than James Wan attached to direct the pilot episode. Writing for the series is Shay Hatten, who did the screenplay for John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum and as well as Zack Snyder's in-production Army of the Dead.

There's no word yet on when exactly filming will kick off or when this series will make its premiere, but we will surely keep you posted with all the latest right here on Dead Entertainment.
