Last week a teaser trailer was dropped for a Crocodile Dundee sequel with Danny McBride called Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home. I still can't tell if this is some kind of elaborate joke, but today we've learned that Chris Hemsworth has joined the film project and there's a promo video showing us a scene involving his character meeting Mcbride, who plays the son of Paul Hogan's original character.
Hemsworth plays a character named Wally Jr. and the official site for the film describes him as the heir to his father’s outback tour company.
"This expert outdoorsman prides himself on knowing all the is to know about the land down under. But even he will have his hands full keeping his new American friend out of trouble."
This whole thing just seems so weird! I've seen some people speculate that this is all leading up to some kind of crazy Super Bowl ad, but who knows!? I certainly don't! If that's the case... awesome! If that's not what is happening here and there's an actual movie in development... awesome! I guess we'll just have to wait and see how this whole thing plays out.
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 will be supposedly be released in the Summer of 2018... if it's real.
