James Wan is producing a small screen version of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” that Amazon recently ordered to series, and we’ve got more casting news today.
Deadline reports that pop star Spencer Sutherland (Afterlife of the Party) is the latest to join the cast. He’ll be part of “a multi-episode arc,” the site reports.
Madison Iseman (Annabelle Comes Home, Jumanji: The Next Level), Brianne Tju (Light as a Feather), Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore (Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping), Sebastian Amoruso (Solve), Fiona Rene (Stumptown), Cassie Beck (Connecting), Brooke Bloom (Homecoming), Sonya Balmores (“Inhumans”) and Bill Heck (I’m Your Woman) also star.
I Know What You Did Last Summer is a modern take on the 1997 film that honors the same chilling premise – in a town full of secrets, a group of teenagers are stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night.
Craig Macneill (The Boy, “Channel Zero: Candle Cove,” Lizzie, “Castle Rock,” “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” “NOS4A2”) will direct the show’s pilot episode.
The project is based on the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan. I Know What You Did Last Summer is produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television. Sara Goodman will write and executive produce along with executive producers Shay Hatten, Original Film’s Neal Moritz and Pavun Shetty, and Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Rob Hackett and Michael Clear.
The Jim Gillespie-directed franchise-starter I Know What You Did Last Summer was released in 1997, written by Kevin Williamson and based on Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel. The hit slasher movie was followed by two sequels: I Still Know What You Did Last Summer in 1998 and the direct-to-video I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer in 2006.
