'I Know What You Did Last Summer': Where is the cast of original slasher film now?
Amazon Prime's modern take of the cult-classic slasher 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' is all set to hit the streaming network this October. With a brand new cast and a glossy outlook coupled with copious doses of horror and gore, the latest version's trailer promises enough, but only time will tell if it lives up to the commercial success the '97 flick or Lois Duncan's '73 novel did.
All eyes will also be on the OG cast comprising of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Philippe, Freddie Prinze Jr., Bridgette Wilson, Anne Heche, Muse Watson, Johnny Galecki and Stuart Greer. The series borrows the plotline from the original film. The latest version follows a group of teens in a small town full of dark secrets and finds themselves stalked by a mysterious killer one year after the night of their graduation ceremony. The new cast sees Madison Iseman as twins Lennon and Allison with Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, Brooke Bloom, and Bill Heck rounding up the rest of the cast. And ahead of the premiere, the chatter has been about where the original cast members are.
