After many years of wondering if there would be a new Crocodile Dundee film, then being thrown a 2018 tourism ad featuring the cast, we have some good news.

The Very Excellent Mr Dundee is set to be released and while it’s not exactly Crocodile Dundee, it’s described as ‘six weeks in the life of Paul Hogan. Everything you see is real, except for the bits that are totally made up”.

Paul Hogan, 80, will be joined by a cast including John Cleese, Chevy Chase, Olivia Newton-John, Shane Jacobson, Julia Morris, Jim Jefferies and more.

Hogan will play a version of himself, a retired actor who wants a quiet life outside of the headline. His granddaughter then finds out he has been offered a knighthood for services to comedy and tells all her friends, he reluctantly accepts the offer and has six weeks to stay out of trouble before the ceremony.

And that’s where the movie starts.

The Very Excellent Mr Dundee will be released in Australian cinemas on April 30, 2020.
