Paul Hogan and Shane Jacobson will star in Instinct Entertainment’s Charlie & Boots for release through Paramount and its non-exclusive Australian partner Transmission Films, says Variety.
The comedy was written for the duo by director Shane Murphy and Stewart Faichney, who worked with Hogan on Strange Bedfellows.
“Bedfellows” was the highest grossing Australian film in 2004 and the subject of a failed copyright lawsuit against Universal’s I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.
Charlie & Boots follows a father and son who travel from Victoria to Cape York to fulfill their lifelong ambition to fish off Australia’s northern tip.
The film will have a wide theatrical release in Australia in the second-half of 2009.
