While those of us that bring fans the news knew fairly quickly that the Danny Mcbride driven Crocodile Dundee videos were an Australian tourism campaign, many fans held out for an announcement that they were trailers from an actual movie.
Chris Hemsworth, one of the many Australian actors that appeared in the videos, recently spoke with the BBC Newsbeat and said if there was a worthy story:
“If we could find the right story and script we might do it. The response has been pretty incredible. I had a lot of anxiety beforehand. The Super Bowl commercial scene is a pretty critical environment so I’m just thankful people loved it. While shooting, Danny McBride and I spoke about if it could be a movie. We started to get worried that if this commercial is as good as we hoped it’s going to be, people are going to be disappointed, we’re going to have to make a movie. But I had so much fun making this commercial, I’d definitely be open to discussions about it.”
I was skeptical from the first video that it was going to be a real film. I thought it wouldn’t be a bad vehicle for McBride, however, I felt it was a reboot not many wanted. And while I would end up watching it, I wouldn’t be in a rush to do so.
Once the other videos came out with Hemsworth, Margot Robbie, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, well my attitude changed considerably and I very much wanted it to be a real film. So if they can come up with a good story, and retain all the famous Aussie actors, then, I, like Hemsworth, am in.
