I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
After an accident on a winding road, four teens make the fatal mistake of dumping their victim's body into the sea. But exactly one year later, the dead man returns from his watery grave and he's looking for more than an apology.
I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998)
The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie James and Ray Bronson who left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.
I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006)
A group of teenagers in Colorado find themselves being stalked and killed one by one by a mysterious figure with a hook, exactly one year after they covered up a friend's accidental death.
On June 1, 2016, in an interview with Blumhouse.com "Shockwaves" podcast, writer Flanagan revealed and further confirmed this new iteration and reimagination of the franchise would not have any inventions of the Lois Duncan's novel (the antagonist being a central character) nor the 1997 feature film (the fisherman Ben Willis and four primary protagonists Julie James, Helen Shivers, Barry Cox, and Ray Bronson).
Further, the new direction and scope of the film necessitates an estimated budget of $15–20 million. Sony also states that the film is a high priority and is set for a release somewhere until 2020.

In 1973, Lois Duncan's I Know What You Did Last Summer was published. It was republished as a tie-in to the film in 1997 and once again in 2018 with some of its content modernized. The film adaptation reenvisioned the story of the novel as a violent slasher film, as opposed to the slow-burn mystery nature of the novel.
In 1998, a paperback version of the screenplay for I Still Know What You Did Last Summer was published by Pocket Books.
