Danny McBride to play Crocodile Dundee's son in new movie

Crocodile Dundee was such a relic of its time - the Vegemite-loving late 1980s when, in the words of Phil Hartman, "the USA experienced a short-lived infatuation with Australian culture" - that it's unreal to think the third film in the franchise came out in 2001.

"Crocodile Dundee is a film that has stood the test of time", McBride proclaimed. He's wrong, though. The only person who could fill Paul Hogan' shoes in this utterly unnecessary sequel is the always-hilarious McBride. For one thing, we're entering Super Bowl season, which means ad campaigns are gearing up to promote their commercials that will be airing during the game. Though Mick Dundee was a man of action, Hogan himself was a popular sketch comedian on Australian TV, with a show McBride would have fit right into.

Are you excited for the Crocodile Dundee sequel? Well, actually, he's missing in the Outback. There's also an official website for Dundee which looks entirely legitimate. Some fans were skeptical of its authenticity, assuming the clever Danny McBride was pulling a prank on us. "It was a defining moment in my life and one of my proudest accomplishments".

Called Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, the project stars Danny McBride as Brian Dundee, the son of Mick Dundee that no one knew he had. Then again, what would a Crocodile Dundee movie be like without its mainstay, Paul Hogan. Brian will have to channel his Aussie roots and embark on a new adventure in the land down under.

"Throughout the past few years, I've been thinking about how to bring Dundee to a new generation", Hogan told People magazine, who unveiled the surprise clip, adding more news about those involved would be announced "very soon". "It's time to live up to the family name". Unlike his father, Brian grew up a true city kid.

Last week, the first Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home trailer arrived and the /Film staff had a good laugh because this surely had to be a joke. This movie can't be real, but we can all treasure this image and let it burn itself into our brains forever.
