The 1998 erotic noir movie "Wild Things" is getting (another) sequel. Film director John McNaughton, whose only feature release since has been "Speaking of Sex" in 2001, told Hollywood.com that he and screenwriter Stephen Peters are hashing out a script that would follow up straight-to-DVD releases "Wild Things 2" and "Wild Things: Diamonds in the Rough" with a fourth "Wild Things" movie.

From Hollywood.com:

"It's not one of the sequels, but about their children," he says. OK, that sounds odd, but just wait. It gets real crazy. "Do you know the Amanda Knox case? It's something like that. Something that's like the child of Suzie Toller [Campbell's character], she claimed that Matt Dillon's [character] had 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."
