Hugh Jackman is also part of Dundee!
Hugh Jackman revealed this morning that he is also part of Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, which is expected to be a Super Bowl spot and not an actual movie.
Starring Danny McBride (Vice Principals, Eastbound and Down, Pineapple Express) and Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers franchise, Thor films), the project is produced by Rimfire Films (the company behind the first two Dundee movies). 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.
Hemsworth plays Wally Jr., the son of Dundee’s business partner Walter “Wally” Reilly as played by John Meillon in the first two films.
The original 1986 Crocodile Dundee was a fish-out-of-water comedy written by and starring Paul Hogan as the Australian bushman Mick Dundee who comes to New York City. A sleeper hit, it grossed $328 million at the worldwide box office and spawned two sequels, 1988’s Crocodile Dundee II and 2001’s Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, neither of which met the expectations of the original.
