AMSTERDAM (Hollywood Reporter) - Right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders is planning a sequel to his anti-Muslim film “Fitna,” the local daily De Telegraaf reported Tuesday. The move comes after the Dutch Ministry of Justice on Monday decided not to prosecute him for inciting hatred of Muslims with his film denouncing the Koran.

About 40 complaints were filed against Wilders by both Muslim and non-Muslim organizations in the Netherlands after “Fitna” was released on the Internet. A number of those groups are thought to be considering appeals against the Dutch Prosecutors decision.

Wilders also was investigated for remarks published in the newspaper De Volkskrant calling the Koran fascist and calling for it to be banned.
