It’s pretty easy to see why everyone loves reboots. They offer up a healthy dose of nostalgia, and give parents a chance to share some of their beloved memories with their kids. As such, movie and television reboots have been a prime export of Hollywood for years now and they don’t seem to be showing any signs of letting up. Mad Max, Godzilla, Fantastic Four, Ghostbusters, while some these re-imaginings have been universally praised (Mad Max: Fury Road) the more likely outcome is that they’ll be universally panned (Fantastic Four), but there almost never fails to be a huge amount of hype and exceedingly high expectations leading up to their release (Ghostbusters), which is probably why production studios will never stop churning them out. And with that said, here are 12 more movies you might not have known were getting a remake.
15. I Know What You Did Last Summer
The horror genre is rife with remakes, so it’s little surprise to see that Hollywood is already dipping into successful slasher flicks from the ’90s for ideas. I Know What You Did Last Summer was a huge hit in October 1997 and helped make its young cast (which included Jennifer Love Hewitt and Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar) household names. It also spawned one pretty terrible theatrical sequel and an even worse direct-to-video one, but the original is still remembered fondly alongside other ’90s horror hits such as Scream. The remake is being handled by Oculus director Mike Flanagan, who is reportedly going back to Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel of the same name for inspiration. Sony is apparently pretty high on this one and estimates a release somewhere between 2018-2020.
