Every character on Amazons I know what you did last summer could be a killer. At New York Comic Con 2021 on Friday, the cast and creators of the upcoming Horror Redux series gathered for a virtual panel to showcase new footage, introduce their characters, and insist that they too had theories about crime thrillers. There were even some surprises from the original 1997 line-up … overtaking the hook, if you will.
The series is a remake of the novel by Lois Duncan I know what you did last summeron which the 1997 film is based. Although the film had several sequels, the series is not another sequel, reboot, or set in the film universe. There are all new characters and probably another killer among them just to keep us busy.
Let’s recap the suspects: Actor Madison Iseman has dual duties as twins named Lennon and Allison. Lennon is the popular farewell speaker, and Allison is calmer and more artistic. “You can’t really know what she’s thinking,” said Iseman. Ezekiel Goodman plays Dylan, “who is very concerned about doing the right thing”. When asked who it was the most difficult to write for, the show’s creator, Sara Goodman, said Dylan, and the actor smiled knowingly before even answering the question.
Brianne Tju plays the bright and “sometimes disgusting” Margot. “She has main character energy,” said Tju. Ashley Moore plays tough “underdog” Riley, not sure if her friends like her because of her or because of her drug connection. “She is very much in love with her best friend,” Moore teased. Finally, there is Sebastian Amoruso as Johnny quarterback. “I think he’s the drummer for this group,” said Amoruso. “He holds things together without drawing attention to himself.”
While the characters are brand new in this adaptation, the basic plot is the same. The show’s official description reads: “A year after the fatal car accident that followed their graduation night, a group of teenagers come together through a dark secret and are pursued by a brutal murderer. As they try to find out who is after them, they reveal the dark side of their seemingly perfect city – and themselves. Everyone is hiding something and uncovering the wrong secret could be fatal. ”
Goodman was executive producer on both preacher and Gossip aunt. This show was supposed to combine the bloodier aspects of the former with the teenage drama of the latter.
“I didn’t want anyone to know [who the killer is] until the last minute, ”said Goodman. “Also on a subconscious level. I didn’t want anyone else to react to this actor. I felt like it was very, very important that everyone didn’t know until they had to know – which was driving everyone crazy. ”Goodman said that her phone is filled with texts from cast members who insisted on them knew who the killer was at various points during the filming.
At the very end of the panel, members of the original cast (Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., Ryan Phillipe and Jennifer Love Hewitt) stopped by to ask some “fan” questions and to bless / pass on the new cast. When asked if they were for cameos from the OG. be open IKWYDLS Cast, Goodman teased that if the show is renewed for Season 2, “Season 1 may have an opening for” [a future cameo] for season 2. “But let’s get through season one first and see who, if anyone, survives.
