Coming completely out of nowhere, a new forty-second trailer has hit for “Dundee,” what appears to be a sequel/spin-off to “Crocodile Dundee” starring Danny McBride as Mick Dundee’s long lost American son Brian Dundee.
Rimfire Films, who produced the first two “Crocodile Dundee” movies, is seemingly behind the clip which points to the website DundeeMovie.com and has a Summer 2018 release date. No-one is sure what this is exactly – a tourism Australia promo maybe? A web series? The synopsis on the site says:
“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.”
People broke the story of the project and confirmed Paul Hogan will reprise the role of Mick Dundee in the film as well. Hogan tells the mag:
“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.”
