Australian actor and comedian Paul Hogan, best known as the creator and star of Crocodile Dundee, is set to star in The Very Excellent Mr Dundee.
The movie comes following the success of the recent Tourism Australia campaign, Dundee – The Son of a Legend Returns Home, which launched in the U.S. during the Super Bowl and reignited interest in Hogan’s most famous role.
Released in 1986, Crocodile Dundee remains the top-grossing Australian film ever, both locally and internationally, and it made Hogan a global star. He went on to make two sequels, 1988’s Crocodile Dundee II and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles in 2001.
The new comedy will be set in Los Angeles and starts production in July, with shooting taking place in Australia, Los Angeles and Vancouver.
While the supporting cast is yet to be confirmed, Hogan said, “watch this space, as I’ve been honoured to have many of my friends and colleagues, whose work I adore, agree to join us for this hilarious new adventure.”
