    The update of the cult classic ’90s teen slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer has found its home at Amazon Studios with Preacher veteran Sara Goodman attached to write and executive produce alongside horror maestro James Wan via his Atomic Monster banner, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    We are thrilled to have I Know What You Did Last Summer with our incredible partners at Amazon Studios,” Sony Pictures TV Studios co-president Jason Clodfelter said in a statement. “Neal Moritz and Original Films’ development consistently fires on all cylinders and that is proven once again with Sara Goodman’s contemporary and pulsating character weaving suspense thriller.

    A theatrical reboot of the series, loosely based on the novel of the same name, was previously announced in 2016 with then-up-and-coming writer/director Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House) set to co-write and direct the project. After languishing for three years that attempt is now dead in the water, with Flanagan even taking to Twitter to confirm he is no longer working on it.

    The 1997 film version, directed by Jim Gillespie with a script by Kevin Williamson, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze, Jr. as a group of high school students who accidentally hit and kill a man with their car one night. Although they believe they have successfully covered up their crime, the group finds themselves at the receiving end of a slasher killer’s serial rampage one year later.
