Bourne: Matt Damon is returning to the Bourne series under the direction of Paul Greengrass. The two previously worked together on 2004's The Bourne Supremacy and 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum (pictured above), as well as 2010's non-Bourne action drama Green Zone. Reportedly, the new project is targeting July 26, 2016 for release, which would delay the next planned Boune offshoot starring Jeremy Renner, which will be directed by Justin Lin. [Deadline] I Know What You Did Last Summer: It's been 17 years since Kevin Williamson (Scream) adapted Lois Duncan's thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer for the big screen, and so Sony has decided the time is right for a reboot. The studio has tapped Mike Flanagan (Oculus) to write a new script with his...

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.
Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.
Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:

No one has any lingering affection for I Know What You Did Last Summer, right? No? Great. Just making sure no one’s feelings will be crushed by the announcement that Sony has an Ikwydls reboot fast-tracked for 2016. The following details come by way of Deadline: Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard (Oculus) will script the reboot, which will “again” take its inspiration from the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan. “Again” should really be up for debate, because it’s not like the original film was a slavish page-to-screen update. The book saw a group of teens kill a kid in a hit-and-run and then be haunted by a mysterious figure with a spooky connection to the killing. The movie saw a group of teens kill a scary hobo. Then they were slashed apart by a scary hobo. Still, it’s not like anyone’s thought of Ikwydls in years. It made a boatload of cash in 1997, churned out »

Those of us who look back on the nostalgic '90s with fondness did one giant eye-roll in reaction to the news that a reboot of the '97 horror quasi-classic "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is in the works.
Yes, it's too soon. No, we shouldn't be surprised.
Since we have no control over what Hollywood does (or doesn't do), we thought it best to put what needs to be in the reboot out for all the Internet to see. (That way, it's a matter of public record.)
So listen up, Hollywood. Here's what the children of the '90s need to see in an "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" reboot. Otherwise, we're coming for you.
One of the biggest problems with modern horror is its (usually clunky) inclusion of texts, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and IMs, all of which instantly date the movie. »

We all know what you did 17 summers ago.
In 1997, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" was a horror hit, generating $125 million worldwide and making stars out of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Philippe, and Freddie Prinze, Jr. So of course, nearly two decades later, Hollywood wants to reboot the whole thing.
According to Deadline, Sony has hired writers - "Oculus" co-writer/director Mike Flanagan and partner Jeff Howard - to pen a new adaptation of Lois Duncan's thriller. The studio hopes to have the movie ready by 2016.
For you wee babes out there, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is the tale of four teens who accidentally hit and kill a pedestrian while driving. A year later, they receive the ominous titular note, and the foursome are soon hunted by a mysterious, raincoat-wearing avenger.
It was all cheesy, scary, so-very-'90s fun. Watch the trailer »

Back in 1997, Columbia Pictures brought us a big screen adaptation of the old teen horror novel by Lois Duncan, I Know What You Did Last Summer. It was during the post-Scream horror boom in Hollywood, where getting casts of unknown, young, beautiful people to die one at a time was cool again. It was during this period that the Final Destination series got its start as well. Summer earned a whopping $125 million on a rather minuscule budget, and got itself a sequel the following year.
Well, now Columbia's parent company is ready to bring the series back. In what's likely to be a complete reboot, Sony Pictures has hired Oculus director/co-writer Mike Flanagan, and his partner on that film Jeff Howard, to take a new crack at Duncan's book. The studio is clearly impressed by what Flanagan and Howard were able to do with Oculus, creating a movie that »

For my money this one can be filed in the “why bother” file but – it appears as if director Mike Flanagan is gearing up to remake the 1997 Kevin Williamson scripted ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’. Released hot on the heels of the huge success of ‘Scream’ the film made pretty good change and actually spawned a franchise with two more chapters seeing the light of day over the years. So, why … Continue reading →

Sony still knows what you did last summer. Seventeen years after the hit 1997 horror flick made its debut, the movie house is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, according to Deadline. Sony Pictures is reportedly developing a new take on the famous film, which is an adaptation of Lois Duncan's 1973 novel by the same name. "Read in Variety that film of I Know What You Did Last Summer, is being remade," Duncan, now 80, tweeted on Monday, Sept. 15. "[The] author is always [...] »
Even though we still know what they did that summer. After sitting through the last couple of Spider-Man movies, nobody could accuse Sony of making films for the sake of art, so it should come as no surprise that the studio is eyeing a reboot of middling slasher flick, I Know What You Did Last Summer. Yet, somehow, it is a surprise. »
It seems the Hollywood Reboot Machine has tapped out the horror classics of the 70's and 80's, now it's moving into the 90's with it's eyes set on I Know What You Did Last Summer. Sony Pictures are planning the reboot, with Oculus writer/director Mike Flanagan on board to pen the script. The teens stalked by a stranger who know they killed accidentally killed a man the Summer previous plot will remain intact, but the movie is said to re-adapt the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan the original movie was based on, which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Sarah Michelle Geller, and took some liberties with the source material. I find it interesting this is announced around the same time as Scream, the movie which launched the slasher movie revival the original was spawned from, goes into development as a t.v show.

Happy to be writing a new "I Know What You Did Last Summer." (I'm Not, however, directing or producing... Not sure where that came from)

They were one of the most successful horror series of films from the tail end of the 1990s, and now Sony Pictures are looking to revive the I Know What You Did Last Summer movies for modern audiences.
The films, which started in 1997 with I Know What You Did Last Summer, before spawning sequels I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and the direct-to-dvd hit I’LL Always Know What You Did Last Summer as recently as 2006, were hugely successful and starred the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze, Jr.
The story, adapted from a 1970s novel by Scream writer Kevin Williamson, revolved around a group of high school students who are involved in a hit and run accident late one summer’s evening. Believing that the man they run over died, the students go about everyday life, only to discover that »

Here I am once more, potentially defending something that is much maligned as a catastrophic fail. I often find myself having to do that for films, (sequels especially) that did not find a collective acceptance among its target audience. Friday the 13th part 5, Halloween 3, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, just to name a few. “Cursed” stands alone, but still made a difficult road for itself by being part of a genre that has had its share of epic triumphs and hard disappointments. Werewolf films have broken new ground with “An American Werewolf in London” with its landmark special effects, and “The Howling” with »
Sony is set to plunder the ‘90s for its next horror remake, with the studio set to breathe new life into slasher caper I Know What You Did Last Summer. Written by Scream scribe Kevin Williamson, the original was part of the late-‘90s boom in teen slasher movies, bringing in $125 million at the box office and spawning a suitably half-baked sequel. The story focuses on a group of teens who find themselves stalked by the hook-wielding figure they hit with a car and left for dead during a drunken night out. According to the report,...

It's a good week or two since we last had a story about a new remake or a reboot. We thought for a minute that the fine folk of Hollywood were trading in original ideas of something. But worry not friends: next on the reboot roster is I Know What You Did Last Summer.
The good news on the new version, which will go back to that source novel, is that Mike Flanagan is involved. He put together the really rather good Oculus earlier this year, and before that directed Absentia too. He's going to be penning the script »
