Lions Gate buys horror spoof

Blanchard's 'Screamed' stars Thiessen, Coolio, Arnold

Lions Gate Films has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to John Blanchard’s teen horror spoof “I Know What You Screamed Last Summer.” Produced by Stephen Nemeth’s Rhino Films, the comedy stars Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Coolio and Tom Arnold. A summer release is planned.

“I Know…” combines the plot lines of “Scream” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” in a satire that pays homage to the horror genre of the ’90s. In the film, Hagitha Utslay (Thiessen) portrays an Empty-V investigative reporter who is investigating a rash of murders on the campus of Bulimia Falls High School; the principal (Coolio) hires the local mall’s security guard (Tom Arnold) to prevent further mayhem. The script was written by Sue Bailey and Joe Nelms.

The deal was negotiated by Lions Gate Releasing co-president Tom Ortenberg and Lions Gate Films president Jeff Sackman, with producer Nemeth and Randy Paul of Gibson Hoffman Pancione representing the filmmakers.
