[AFM ’13] ‘Wolf Creek 2’ Is Coming To the States!

Wolf-Creek-2_John Jarratt as Mick Taylor 1

I’m always terrified that hyped foreign films won’t make it to the States for years – look at Livid for example.

This is why I’m crazy excited to reveal that Image Entertainment, an RLJ company, has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Gregg McLean’s hotly anticipated Wolf Creek 2. It opens in its home of Australia on November 22.

John Jarratt returns as the killer Mick Taylor, with Ryan Corr, Shannon Ashlyn and Philipe Klaus also starring in this sequel to the popular Sundance slasher acquired by Dimension Films. No word on who will release the sequel, yet…

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.

    The only thing I hate is the poster art! It does not do a justice for the film. Like the poster art for the first movie was eerie and gave you a taste of what the movie had in store. I have no idea why they would approved this art.

    This time around the film looks to far fetched. The original was apparently based on true events. Now their making Mick Taylor look like a Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers & Leatherface character.

    Wolf Creek was one of the better films out of its decade..it was brutal and suspenseful and was unafraid to break the rules of the horror genre.. Nothing slick about it, it was most definately a gritty little bastard of a film.
    I look forward to see what they have in store for us next but i will admit i have some reservations already…
    For one i’d prefer to see Mick go after a group with different dynamics other than a group of teenage or twenty something back packers that you dont like anyway.. i dont know maybe a family like in the video’s he had attained from his previous kills that can give a little fight back to Mick.. Just anything to throw in a new dynamic that we didnt see in the first film.. I like the director anyways so i’m hoping for the best.
