Remember that ménages trios between Neve Campbell, Denise Richards and Matt Dillon in John McNaughton’s “Wild Things”?

No? Ask your older brother – or sister – he does.

Granted, there was more to “Wild Things” than saucy pool scenes, there was actually a clever, fun twist-filled mystery bubbling away its core. Plus, a fun Bill Murray appearance.

Fifteen years later, and despite the dreadful direct-to-video sequels that followed his film, McNaughton says he’s planning to make a sequel. This one, of course, will fix on the ‘kids’ of the original characters. Very “Dallas”.

” It’s not one of the sequels, but about their children,” the “Henry : Portrait of a Serial Killer” told Hollywood.com. “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.”
