Can you believe it's been 17 YEARS since I Know What You Did Last Summer??
So instead of making the umpteenth sequel I Swear I Totally Remember Knowing What You Did A Few Summers Ago, Sony Pictures has opted for the second favorite way to use an existing property– the reboot!
The new take on the classic story (it's actually adapted from a 1973 novel) will be penned by Mike Flanagan, the writer-director of 2013's super scary Oculus.
But as we all know, the biggest selling point of 97's I Know was the cast.
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze, Jr. were the hottest young talent in Hollywood at the time, and they put them all together to fight for their lives.
So who can replace a sexy cast like that? We have some interesting ideas…
Replacing Jennifer Love Hewitt…
OK, she doesn't really do much acting, per se, but we have the solution for that. Kill her off early! Not only does it subvert expectations Scream-style, it also tells the audience that no one is safe!
Replacing Sarah Michelle Gellar…
Chloe Grace Moretz!
If you're going to kill off J-Love's character early, you really need a solid SMG replacement to carry the film. We know Chloe can do that, PLUS how fun would it be to watch her break out some Hit-Girl skills on that slasher!
Replacing Ryan Phillippe…
Ryan was the most gorgeous guy in the world in 1997. Faking It's Gregg is one of the only guys in the world who can fit that tank top.
Replacing Freddie Prinze, Jr…
Playing a bad boy is Avan's stock in trade so far, so taking Freddie's place as both a suspect AND a victim is right in his wheel house.
What do U think? Who would you like to see in the iconic roles?
