Australian filmmaker Greg Mclean’s “Wolf Creek” sequel only went into production earlier this year, so the race to get the film ready for its world premiere in Venice over the weekend was a tight one.
They made it though, the film scored good reviews from various trades in attendance. The follow-up to the 2005 original sees John Jarratt reprising his role as outback serial killer Mick Taylor, this time stalking a new set of victims including rising young Australian actor Ryan Corr (“Packed to the Rafters”).
Despite the premiere, the film won’t be hitting theaters for a while with an Australian release currently slated for February. No word on release dates in other parts of the world as yet.
The first behind-the-scenes footage from the feature appeared on a news broadcast last week and can be seen online below. The story reveals that despite the film being set in Western Australia, the movie was mostly shot around the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.
