Screen Australia has come to the rescue of Wolf Creek 2. The sequel was supposed to start shooting earlier this year but the money fell apart (as it often does). Screen Australia closed their financing gap and now the film can move ahead. John Jarratt will reprise his role as serial killer Mick Taylor in the film from Greg McLean.
In the film, “Lured by the promise of an 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 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 else 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.“
