Things you never knew about 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' 

Moviefone logo
It's time to get hooked again. This week marks the 20th anniversary of "I Know What You Did Last Summer," released October 17, 1997. The seaside slasher film rode the wave of teen horror launched the previous winter by "Scream" and became a hit that made TV stars Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar into big-screen scream queens. It also handed early career boosts to Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr., and gave rise to two sequels and one celebrity marriage. As many times as you may have watched the horror staple, there are still some secrets beneath the movie's murder-y rain slicker. Read on for the details... "what are you waiting for?" 1. "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" shared more than just well-scrubbed teen stars stalked by slashers. Both movies were written by Kevin Williamson, who'd soon hit the teen trifecta with a third effort: TV's "Dawson's Creek." In fact, Williamson wrote the "IKWYDLS" script before "Scream," but couldn't get it made until "Scream" put him on the map. 2. Aside from some coastal shots filmed in Sonoma County, California, most of "IKWYDLS" was filmed on location in the town where the story takes place: Southport, North Carolina. 3. Prinze recalled recently that he auditioned for "Scream," for the role that ultimately went to Skeet Ulrich, and that Williamson reassured him that he'd be cast in "IKWYDLS," whether he auditioned for the film or not. Which irked the actor, since he'd been asked to audition or the role of Ray Bronson five times and assumed he'd lose the part to Jeremy Sisto, "who was way better than me back then" and who had earlier beaten Prinze for a role in "Clueless." 4. Prinze claims he was the oldest of the four leads and the first to turn 21, so he remembers being the one who always had to buy beer for the others. 5. Hewitt says the idea for her most famous scene, where she spins around in the street and shouts, "What are you waiting for?", came from an anonymous young horror fan who was on the set that day. Hewitt thought she'd look silly, but the scene worked. "People don't know that that was just like some kid who loved horror movies," she said in 2015. "I'm glad I got to do that for him." 6. The actress also said that shooting scenes in which she was chased by the slasher villain felt so real that it kept her awake at night. "There were definitely days where I went home and was like, 'I'm supposed to be asleep now. I don't think that that's going to happen.'" 7. The film cost a reported $17 million to make. It earned back $72 million in North America and another $53 million overseas. 8. One person who wasn't a fan of "IKWYDLS" was Lois Duncan, who wrote the 1973 novel the movie was based on. Duncan updated her book in the 1990s to include more current cultural references, but the film still bore little resemblance to either version of Duncan's novel. 9. The main, glaring difference: In the book, there is no hook-wielding slasher fisherman who seemingly returns from the dead to hunt down the four teens in the car that hit him. In the book, the foursome's car strikes a boy on a bicycle, and the he's definitely dead. The character in the book who turns out to be the vengeful stalker behind the anonymous notes doesn't even exist in the movie. "I had expected it to be my story, and it wasn't. It was my characters and my plot gimmick, but then it went in all directions," Duncan complained. Of the filmmakers, she said, "They kept me as far away as possible. I think they were afraid of how I might react if I realized what my little masterpiece was going to turn into." 10. Producer Neal Moritz would reteam with Gellar and Phillippe a year later on the successful teen drama, "Cruel Intentions." 11. Though Gellar and Prinze met and became friends on the set, they didn't start dating until three years later. They have been married since 2002. 12. In 2014, news broke that Moritz was planning to remake "IKWYDLS," with a script written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard, the duo behind "Oculus" and Netflix's new adaptation of Stephen King's "Gerald's Game." This past June, Flanagan said the screenplay was in in Moritz's hands, and that he hoped the project was still going forward. 13. Promoting his recent horror movie "Wish Upon" this past July, Phillippe reflected on the making of "IKWYDLS" 20 years ago. He recalled how exciting it was for himself and his fellow cast members to be young, on the cusp of fame, and occasionally foolish. "I had the great idea to take my rental car on the beach in North Carolina, with Sarah Michelle, and got it stuck in a sand dune and had to get it towed out before production realized," he said. "But you do a lot of dumb stuff when you're young." 14. In a creepy life-imitates-art incident, Phillippe said he also received a Twitter DM on July 4th from "IKWYDLS" killer Muse Watson. "I think he wrote something creepy like, 'Hello, old friend,' or something." Phillippe said. "He was definitely playing ... he was in character. He was definitely tweeting in character."... read more

21 things you never knew about 'Boogie Nights' 

Moviefone logo
In the age of HBO's "The Deuce," "Boogie Nights" looks like a time-honored masterpiece, but when the sprawling period epic about the golden age of porn filmmaking opened 20 years ago this week (on October 10, 1997), moviegoers didn't exactly embrace it. The subject matter was still too skeevy to draw mainstream or even art-house audiences, yet not nearly explicit enough to draw the trench coat crowd. "Most people don't share my moral sense," writer/director Paul Thomas Andersonexplained in 1999, "which is, 'I'll masturbate, but I have to clean it up very quickly afterwards.'" No wonder "Boogie Nights" wasn't exactly a hit. Nonetheless, it earned three Oscar nominations, made a serious leading man out of Mark Wahlberg, gave Burt Reynolds his best role of the last 35 years, put Anderson on the map, and gave early career boosts to Philip Seymour Hoffman, John C. Reilly, Don Cheadle, and Thomas Jane. These days, "Boogie Nights" evokes double nostalgia, both for the disco 1970s, lovingly recreated in the movie's costumes and soundtrack, and for the 1990s, when Hollywood studios still nurtured indie directors and let them realize their visions instead of plucking them fresh from Sundance and assigning them to direct CGI blockbuster franchise sequels. "Boogie Nights" had a famously fraught production history, including some life-imitates-porn moments and a near-fistfight between Reynolds and Anderson. Here are some of the things that, uh, went down. 1. Anderson (above, right) grew up in the Valley and was, as a teen, obsessed with the porn industry existing all around him. He was still in high school when he made his first movie, a 32-minute short called "The Dirk Diggler Story," a "Zelig"-like mockumentary about a fallen porn star. In addition to the protagonist, several other characters and much of the dialogue would find their way into "Boogie Nights" a decade later. 2. The Dirk Diggler of Anderson's "Boogie Nights" screenplay bears a strong resemblance to legendary porn actor John Holmes, and not just in terms of length. There's Holmes' rise to fame via the series of "Johnny Wadd" thrillers (echoed in Dirk's "Brock Landers" movies), his biographical documentary directed by a colleague ("Exhausted," the inspiration for the movie that Julianne Moore's Amber makes about Dirk), and his alleged involvement in the Wonderland drug murder case (the inspiration for the whole nightmarish sequence involving Alfred Molina's Rahad Jackson). 3. New Line wanted to be the next Miramax, and they needed their own Quentin Tarantino. After seeing Anderson's first film, "Hard Eight," they thought he might be it. They decided the director's phone-book-sized script about a guy with a 13-inch penis was edgy enough, as long as he agreed to keep it under three hours and keep the rating down to an R. 4. Anderson initially wanted Leonardo DiCaprio to star as Dirk Diggler, but the actor begged off, citing his commitment to star in "Titanic." But he recommended his "Basketball Diaries" co-star Wahlberg. "You know," Anderson joked, "Mark came to me and said, 'I've got an inch on Leo.' I said, 'Really?' And he showed it to me. And then I hired him." Years later, DiCaprio would cite turning down "Boogie Nights" as his "biggest regret." 5. The role of Jack Horner, the porn filmmaker who becomes a surrogate father to Dirk and an ad hoc family of cast and crew members, was hard to cast. Before hiring Burt Reynolds, Anderson considered actors as diverse as Albert Brooks, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Jack Nicholson and Sydney Pollack. 6. Warren Beatty expressed interest, but he ultimately acknowledged he just wanted to be associated with the project because the 59-year-old star saw himself more as Dirk. ("I think he was joking and not joking," Anderson mused.)7. Samuel L. Jackson, who'd played the villain in "Hard Eight," turned down the role of Buck Swope, the porn actor who dreams of selling stereos. His response to the script, Anderson recalled, was "What the hell is this?" After Moore vouched for the young director, Cheadle took the part and turned it into a career-boosting showcase. 8. There were a number of real-life porn actors in the cast, mostly as extras, though Nina Hartley had the biggest part as the emasculating wife of Little Bill (William H. Macy). Anderson hired them to help make sure he was depicting the porn world accurately, but sometimes, things got a little too much like the real thing. Hartley would often walk around the set in the nude because that's what she was used to doing on porn sets, even though it unnerved Anderson's cast and crew. She also wondered aloud why she couldn't just have sex in her sex scenes, since she found simulating sex much more complicated. During one scene, some of the actors and crew claimed she and her partner really were having sex, but she insisted later that his penis wasn't venturing where everyone thought it was going; it just wasn't taped to his thigh like it should have been. 9. Like her character, Heather Graham (Rollergirl) seldom took off her skates, even when cameras weren't rolling. 10. Speaking of penises, the movie's most famous special effect was the prosthetic Diggler that Wahlberg shows off in the final scene. The first one that the make-up team built was John Holmes-sized, but it just looked too huge to seem real, so they built a shorter one, still large enough for Marky Mark to hide his actual funky bunch inside. 11. In fact, the make-up artists built several, in case of breakage. Wahlberg also whipped it out during the sequence where Dirk and Amber are shooting a sex scene; it doesn't appear on camera then, but Wahlberg wanted to get a rise out of Moore. Most of the time, however, the package shown straining against the confines of Dirk's bellbottoms is just a woman's stocking filled with birdseed. The propmakers left the stocking in a warm trunk, where its seeds started to sprout, so they had to make another one. 12. During one scene where Little Bill grumbles about having caught his wife being sodomized by another man, Macy repeatedly muffed his line and said it backwards: "My f**king wife has an ass in her c**k." Anderson decided he preferred the mistake and kept it in the film. 13. While Anderson allowed Macy and others to ad lib, he insisted that Reynolds stay on script. Reynolds became irked and felt that the relatively inexperienced director wasn't giving him the respect he deserved as a veteran movie star. The two men argued loudly, and Reynolds swung a fist that might have hit Anderson in the face had a crew member not held back his arm. 14. Why is Molina the only actor in his scene not distracted by the firecrackers going off at random intervals? Because he's wearing a hidden earpiece piping in "Sister Christian" on a continuous loop. 15. If the song "You Got the Touch," which Dirk records during his dubious effort to branch out into music, sounds familiar, it's because it originally appeared on the soundtrack of the first "Transformers" movie -- the 1986 cartoon, that is. Dirk's other song, "Feel the Heat," was composed by Anderson and Reilly. 16. Avant-garde satirical film director Robert Downey Sr. (yep, Iron Man's real-life dad) shows up in a cameo as the record label executive. With Downey's permission, Anderson cribbed the kid setting off firecrackers from Downey's 1969 movie "Putney Swope," as wel... read more

Things you never knew about 'The Last of the Mohicans' 

Moviefone logo
Has there been a movie couple in the past quarter century as steamy as Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe in "The Last of the Mohicans"? Released 25 years ago this week (on September 25, 1992), Michael Mann's pre-Revolutionary adventure saga never got Day-Lewis out of his buckskin or Stowe out of her corset, yet their smoldering glances and passionate embraces sparked more sexual chemistry than screen couples in more explicit movies have displayed. "Mohicans" was a hit that transformed Day-Lewis into a Hollywood leading man, proved Mann could do historical epics as well as contemporary crime dramas, and put Wes Studi (who played the villain, Magua) on the map as a character actor. Still, there's a lot that fans of the movie haven't seen -- the production's off-camera turmoil, the missing love scene, and the secretly prankish side of the usually intense Day-Lewis. Here's what really happened in the feral backwoods. 1. There really was a Col. Munro who led the British forces at Fort William Henry when the French attacked it in 1757. James Fenimore Cooper drew much of his 1826 novel from accounts of the siege's survivors, but the rest of the characters were his own inventions. 2. Mann drew more from the 1936 Randolph Scott movie version of "Last of the Mohicans" -- a movie he'd enjoyed as a kid -- than from Fenimore Cooper's novel. Not only is the book a notorious slog to read, but it's also largely an apology for white appropriation of Indian lands, one that wouldn't have sat well with post-"Dances With Wolves" audiences. 3. Fortunately, in Mann's research, he found the diary of Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, a French explorer who served as an officer during the siege. His detailed, witty, sarcastic account of the event served as a bracing counterpoint to Fenimore Cooper's version. 4. The unspoiled woodlands of rural New York in 1757 were played by the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina of 1991. Mann spent a reported $6 million just to build the Fort William Henry set to historical specifications. 5. Day-Lewis brought his usual Method obsessiveness to the part of Hawkeye. Before he came to the set, he spent six months with a trainer building his upper-body strength. In the North Carolina forest, he spent another month learning Daniel Boone-type survival skills, including hunting, skinning animals, building canoes, wielding a tomahawk, and loading and firing a 12-pound flintlock rifle. 6. Like a real frontiersman, he brought his rifle everywhere, even to Christmas dinner. And while some of the actors and crew spent their downtime listening to Walkmans and smoking Marlboros, Day-Lewis made a point of avoiding modern technology and rolling his own smokes. Explaining what drew him to the role, he said, "I liked the idea of a man who had not been touched by 20th-century neurosis, a life that isn't drawn inwards." 7. Russell Means was 52 when he made his big-screen debut as Chingachgook. He was already famous, however, for his activism as the national director of the American Indian Movement. 8. Wes Studi, too, had been an Indian activist before turning to acting later in life. (Before "Mohicans," his most prominent credit was as the Indian mystic in Jim Morrison's visions in Oliver Stone's "The Doors.") Both Means and Studi had been involved in the Wounded Knee occupation in 1973, 18 years before they reunited on the "Mohicans" set as antagonists. 9. Much of the secondary romance, between Alice Munro (Jodhi May) and Chingachgook's son Uncas (Eric Schweig) didn't make it into the movie. It was rumored that there was a more explicit love scene between them, cut at the insistence of the 17-year-old actress's mother, who chaperoned May throughout the shoot. Schweig, however, has said that their scene was more "puppy love" than its reputation suggests, and that Mann de-emphasized the Alice-Uncas romance in order not to distract from the main love story between Hawkeye and Cora Munro (Stowe). 10. Hawkeye and Cora may have been mentally undressing each other on screen, but when the cameras stopped, Day-Lewis and Stowe were busy trying to punk each other. Their practical-joke war started with food fights and escalated to a bloody car crash, faked by Day-Lewis and his chauffeur, for Stowe to stumble upon. 11. Mann was notoriously as much a perfectionist as his star, supposedly shooting up to 20 takes of many scenes and keeping the night-shoot crew working from dusk until dawn. An oft-repeated (but apocryphal) anecdote from the set had Mann, at the end of a long night, complaining about an orange light messing up his shot, only to have a crew member respond, "That's the sun, Michael." 12. By the end of the shoot, Mann had gone $7 million over his $33 million budget. Oscar-winning costume designer James Acheson had left the production, citing creative differences with Mann, to be replaced by Elsa Zamparelli. 13. In post-production, Mann scrapped composer Trevor Jones' electronic score and decided he wanted a more traditional orchestral score. Jones reworked his score but didn't have time to finish it, and Mann had to hire composer Randy Edelman to complete the music. 14. After the shoot, Day-Lewis had a hard time shaking the character. Complaining of hallucinations and claustrophobia (he was no longer used to spending much time indoors), the actor turned to a French holistic doctor, who prescribed him a potion of mystery ingredients, which Day-Lewis assumed to be a concoction of herbs and alcohol. Whatever it was, it seemed to do the trick. 15. "Last of the Mohicans" earned $75.5 million at the North American box office, making it the 17th biggest hit of 1992. 16. Despite critical raves, the film earned just one Oscar nomination. The category was Best Sound, and "Mohicans" won. 17. Mann has yet to make another movie set before the 20th century. After "Mohicans," he said, "My next movie will have flat floors and people who wear zippers. I've had it with nature and stuff that falls off, everything tied together with thongs."... read more
