Wild Things 4

Since Wild Things 2 and Wild Things 3 are some of the biggest articles on my site, it is pretty much a given that we will make the first piece of news relayed through the blog that a sequel to the original Wild Things is being pushed through the studio systems. Titled Backstabbers, it even has Neve Campbell and Denise Richards attached. No word on if Bill Murray will guest star, or if he will be replaced with Bernie Mac.

Mandalay ‘Wild’ about pic reteam
McNaughton to helm ‘Backstabbers’

Mandalay is rounding up a “Wild Things” reunion.

Company has made a deal with “Wild Things” helmer John McNaughton to direct “Backstabbers,” penned by Stephen Peters, who wrote the 1998 sexy thriller starring Denise Richards, Neve Campbell, Matt Dillon and Kevin Bacon.

Richards and Campbell are in talks to reteam in “Backstabbers.” Mandalay and producers are currently rounding out the rest of the pic’s package.

Story is described as a sexy caper about a rich New York man who masterminds his wife’s kidnapping unaware that his mistress and bodyguard are going to double-cross him.

Warden, White & Associates’ Steve White is producing with Jerry Li. Reagan Silber is exec producing. The project is being overseen for Mandalay by exec veep David Zelon.

“Backstabbers” has been in development at Mandalay for several years and once had John Herzfeld attached to direct. At that time, however, pic was titled “Trophy Wife” and the plot has had an overhaul since then. Although “Backstabbers” reunites the players from “Wild Things,” it’s not being billed as a sequel. That pic already spawned 2004’s video title “Wild Things 2.
