It’s been a long time coming but it would seem that Wolf Creek 2 is finally ready to shoot! It was announced over the weekend at the Melbourne International Film Festival that director Greg McLean’s sequel to his original Wolf Creek has finally received the funding it so desperately needed. Greg McLean directed the original, horrific ‘true’ story back in 2005, and since then fans have been crying out for the sequel, which has been on the cards for a number of years. Rest assured dear readers that the horrible Mick Taylor IS returning to torture a new group of poor souls. Here is the official synopsis:
“Lured by the promise of an authentic Australian holiday, backpackers RUTGER, KATARINA and PAUL visit the notorious Wolf Creek crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the vast and isolated region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).
As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic, white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster, and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.”
