This ‘Wild Things’ Sequel Sounds So Nuts, It Has to Get Made

Posted April 25, 2013 by Rick in Movie News


What do you remember about Wild Things? If you said Neve Campbell and Denise Richards making out in pool, then you think just like everyone else. In this 1998 film, Kevin Bacon’s brief full frontal nudity was overshadowed. In this era of movies like Spring Breakers this movie seems tame but at the time it was quite racy.

Two direct-to-video sequels were released and since then, noone has given much thought or feeling to Wild Things. The films director John McNaughton is still hoping that he can revive the story. In an interview with John spoke about a few details on the follow up heis currently working on with screen writer Stephen  Peters.

“It’s not one of the sequels, but about their children. Do you know the Amanda Knox case? It’s something like that. Something that’s like the child of Suzie Toller [Neve Campbell's character], she claimed that Matt Dillon’s character raped her a long time ago and maybe there is a child and maybe Bill Murray’s character had a child and they’re exchange students and things get out of hand. We’re calling it Wild Child Things.”
