A new teaser trailer was released on Friday for a movie no one knew was coming, as it seems we are returning to the Outback in 2018.
In 1986 actor Paul Hogan introduced us to Mick “Crocodile” Dundee a legend of the Australian Outback who’s brought to New York City by a reporter, played by Linda Kozlowski. The idea came to Hogan while on a visit to New York when he wondered what it might be like if an Australian bushman actually visited the city. Crocodile Dundee was a huge success becoming the second highest grossing movie in the U.S. in 1986.
The success of Crocodile Dundee would lead to two sequels Crocodile Dundee II (1988) and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles (2001). Fast-forward seventeen and it looks as if a third sequel/reboot is headed back to theaters later this summer.
“Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home” will star Danny McBride as Dundee’s son who returns to the Outback after his father Mick “Crocodile” Dundee goes missing. Paul Hogan according to People Magazine is also returning.
Paul Hogan spoke to People Magazine and had this to say about a new Crocodile Dundee movie.
“Crocodile Dundee is a film that has stood the test of time. It was a defining moment in my life and one of my proudest accomplishments. Throughout the past few years, I’ve been thinking about how to bring Dundee to a new generation. I’m excited to introduce the new Crocodile Dundee to the world and look forward to sharing more news about those involved very soon.”
Many online feel this is some sort of joke despite the “movie” having an official website and teaser trailer. If this is not a joke and the movie as described is really coming to theaters later this year then kudos to everyone who has kept this movie under wraps.
The teaser trailer below is short and no longer than: 38 seconds in length. Watch it and see what you think.
Crocodile Dundee is back. Well, actually, he’s missing in the Outback. And the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouthed American son no one knew he had.
