Last week we got a teaser trailer for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, an apparent sequel to the Crocodile Dundee movies, starring Danny McBride as Brian Dundee, the long-lost American son of Paul Hogan’s Mick Dundee.
The trailer itself came out of nowhere, and there’s a lot of speculation that this isn’t actually a real movie, but rather some kind of advertising or promotion, possibly for Tourism Australia.
Well, whatever it is, we now know that McBride will be joined by Thor star Chris Hemsworth, who is playing Wally Jr., the son of John Meillon’s Walter ‘Wally’ Reilly. Check out the latest promo here…
“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. Introducing Danny McBride as Brian Dundee. This son of a legend is forced to channel his Aussie roots as he embarks on the ultimate adventure in the land down under. It’s time to live up to the family name. Unlike his father, Brian grew up a true city kid. But that won’t stop him from picking up his dad’s oversized knife and launching into the Australian outback, completely unprepared for what lies ahead.”
Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home is (apparently) set for release in Summer 2018.
