In the landscape of remakes, reboots, reimaginings or whatever hip and happening term is being thrown around Hollywood, one such project that all seemed to go quiet on was a new take on I Know What You Did Last Summer. Now, though, there’s an update on where things lie with that redo.

The last solid information we’d had on all of this was back in 2014 when Oculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil’s pairing of Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard were brought in to pen the script. Speaking to Bloody-Disgusting, Howard has now been discussing the project, explaining, “I don’t have any updates on it. I haven’t heard anything in quite a while. Our involvement ended at the script stage, which we delivered and were happy with, but I’m not sure what’s happening now.”

Flanagan then added, “I was never attached to direct – Jeff and I were only responsible for the script. It’s a great property and it is in terrific hands with [producer] Neal Moritz, so I really hope it gets made.”

Before the 1997 Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr-starring movie, I Know What You Did Last Summer began life as a Lois Duncan novel. Previously, it was reported that Flanagan and Howard were working on a script that was a new take on said source material.

So, it appears that the new I Know What You Did Last Summer is still spinning its wheels in development hell for now even if Flanagan and Howard are happy with their screenplay.

As ever, expect more on this as and when it develops further.
