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

Apr 25, 2013


The only thing you probably remember about the 1998 film Wild Things is Neve Campbell and Denise Richards making out in a pool (Matt Dillon who?). Poor Kevin Bacon's brief full-frontal nudity was overshadowed. In the era of Spring Breakers it seems tame, but the scene was fairly racy for the time. Two direct-to-video sequels were released, and no one has cared about Wild Things since. The original film's director John McNaughton is hanging onto hope that he can revive the story, however, according to The Playlist. In an interview with, McNaughton revealed a few details about a follow-up he's working on with screenwriter 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."


Amanda Knox is the American woman who was convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher in Italy several years ago, by the way. The filmmaker is currently gauging interest in the project, which we hope dies quickly. The Playlist already made the Kickstarter joke we would have. Maybe McNaughton can make a movie out of that insane sorority e-mail instead, because we'd totally watch that.
