Let the revivals continue. This time in the form of the classic 80s movie, Crocodile Dundee. A teaser trailer for a new project titled, Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home. The project has actor Danny McBride in the role of the Crocodile Dundee’s American son. An official synopsis from the project’s website can be found below:

“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.”

In a reversal of the original premise, McBride’s city-dwelling character will venture into the outback in search of his father. McBride recently Spoke with People and has no doubts his character can survive in the outback:

“I’m not going to lie to you, to be a real Crocodile Dundee, I think 95% of it is the vest and then 5% is just being able to not fall down and stay on your feet.”

Crocodile Dundee himself, Paul Hogan, also spoke with People and gave some more insight on what the project is about.

“Crocodile Dundee is a film that has stood the test of time. It was a defining moment in my life and one of my proudest accomplishments. Throughout the past few years, I’ve been thinking about how to bring Dundee to a new generation. I’m excited to introduce the new Crocodile Dundee to the world and look forward to sharing more news about those involved very soon.”

I don’t think this is a sequel anyone is asking for, however, I enjoyed the original film as a kid and will probably end up watching this, if for nothing else than some nostalgia. The project is backed by Rimfire, the same production company that made the first two films, and is set to arrive this summer.

    Maybe we’ll get a shared universe with Crocodile Dundee, Yahoo Serious and Raising Arizona?

    • randomironicname

      The third would be Drop Dead Fred.

      • Tonk99

        Rik Mayall’s dead. Show some respect, mother fucker.

  • AndyInCleveland

    Mr. McBride? Yes, ah could we have a moment of your time after you jump that shark?

    • Kindofabigdeal

      Ahem, jump the crocodile.

  • Kratos

    “I don’t think this is a sequel anyone is asking for” i’d say NO ONE is asking for this.

    • Kindofabigdeal

      Crocodile Undies Too

  • darkwingschmuck

    So let me get this straight. He came to new york in like 1986/87. So if he had a kid right away, that would make him 30 this year. Danny mcbride is well into his 40s i believe. Who the hell thought this up?

    • Weresmurf

      Because actors always play their age right?

      • darkwingschmuck

        You can get away with playing younger if you have a young face. He does not

        • Kindofabigdeal

          To be fair he’s looked the same the past 10 years.

    • Danny B

      Maybe it was an American tourist that he ‘met’ back in Oz before the journalist Knakavakovowski or whatever her name was…

  • samjacksonswig

    This sounds all kinds of fucking horrible….

    • Kindofabigdeal

      The twist at the end is that he and his dad join the Men In Black.

  • Weresmurf

    Eh as an actual Aussie why the fuck not. Can we please stop pretending the Dundee series was anything but complete shit after part 1?

    • Tonk99

      I don’t think anyone’s pretending.

      • Weresmurf

        Dude plenty of people are, proclaiming it a landmark series, a great series etc acting like this would be a travesty, it’s like they missed parts 2 and 3…

        • Kindofabigdeal

          I didn’t know there was a part 3. I remember, I think in part 2, theres like an ox in the road and he puts up his fingers and hums or something and it gets out of his way. Weird movie.
          However, Danny McBride versus drop bears sounds fun.

  • Tonk99

    That Photoshopped koala is way too small. They’re at least twice that size.

    • Kindofabigdeal

      And they have chlamydia.

      • Tonk99

        Only the ones you fucked.

  • Nick_SuIIivan

    Soooooooo…I’m guessing Chris Hemsworth was busy?

    • Kindofabigdeal

      Well its supposed to be a city guy who goes to Outback Steakhouse. Chris would have been more believable. But I guess Danny was the only one picking up his phone that day.

  • Moby85

    The premise has potential but McBride kinda seemed to be mailing it in with that trailer to be honest. Also, Hogan’s statement makes it clear he’s involved and will undoubtably cameo. Probably a 10 minuter ala Chevy Chase in the vacation remake where he shows up to drive the plot one step forward at the end.

    • Kindofabigdeal

      He also lived in the Full House.

  • J-man The Great

    As I wave my hand…”you don’t need to watch this trailer,” “this isn’t the sequel you’re looking for,” “you can go rewatch an episode of The Office on Netflix,” “move along”

    • Kratos

      god I WISH i hadn’t seen that trailer/teaser or whatever the fuck it was…where he was on the cliff and did the “that ain’t a knife…this is a knife duuuuuur” shtick waving it around like goddamn idiot…OMFG.
