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 the last to know what Hollywood does!"

Duncan's works also inspired the 1998 sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and the less-celebrated 2006 third installment, which went straight to video, I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer.

The author isn't the only person involved in the film who hadn't been contacted about the reboot. I Know What You Did Last Summer actor Muse Watson responded to a fan who asked if he was involved in the project, tweeting on Tuesday, "….. Have not heard.  Maybe you guys should ask them…" 

Other stars from the original, such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Anne Heche, haven't commented on Sony Pictures' plans. 

While Sony has yet to announce any actors involved in the film, the company already recruited Mike Flanagan (Oculus) to pen the script for I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Variety reports Neal Moritz (22 Jump Street) will produce. 

Reaching a worldwide gross of $125.59 million with its 1997 debut, I Know What You Did Last Summer told the story of a group of high school friends who become the prey of a killer after a hit and run.
