Crocodile Dundee is back! Well, Paul Hogan is, at least.
And as he puts it to a deflated young fan, “I'm not really Crocodile Dundee, you know, that's just character I played in a movie.”
The first trailer for meta-comedy The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee has landed, with “Hoges” playing a fictionalized version of himself.
The plot is thus: On the cusp of being knighted for his services to comedy, Hogan’s reputation receives a rather serious battering.
Lampooning his own rise and fall from fame, thanks to the Crocodile Dundee movies, the Aussie actor and comedian finds himself being courted by Hollywood for a comeback. Hilarity ensues, including one caper involving the LAPD, John Cleese and the absence of a driving license.
Joining Cleese in playing themselves are Chevy Chase, Olivia Newton-John and Seinfeld's Wayne Knight, with stand-up star Jim Jeffries and Luke Hemsworth also making appearances.
Hogan was a huge hit in Hollywood back in the ‘80s, thanks to the first Dundee movie in 1986, which earned him an Oscar nomination for its screenplay and nearly $330 million at the box office.
Crocodile Dundee II was also a smash two years later, but 2001 comeback Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles was a $39 million worldwide box office disaster.
A U.S. release date for the new film has yet to be announced.
