Well I thought that looked just awful but was saved by the travel advertisement swerve.

I assumed this was a kick-off for a series of commercials.

Margot Robbie didn't make the cut. Neither did Hugh Jackman.

It’s a two year campaign. They’ll have time to join later.

Netflix should put up the money and make this a real movie.

Regardless, it was a pretty clever bit of marketing.

No movie, just advertising.

It’s fake news.

So I guess it is really happening. However, it sounds like it’s not the same premise. It actually sounds like it’ll be quite a disaster. Too bad they didn’t read into the excitement they buzzed with those funny Australian tourism commercials.

Paul Hogan to Star in ‘Mr Dundee’ Film

Iconic Australian actor, Paul Hogan is to star in upcoming feature film “The Very Excellent Mr Dundee.” Production starts next month in Australia, Los Angeles and Vancouver.

Hogan recently thrilled and infuriated fans of the “Crocodile Dundee” film series in which he starred in the 1980s, by appearing in a short film that appeared to be a trailer for a new film in the franchise. But the clip turned out to be a advertisement for Tourism Australia.

“The Very Excellent Mr Dundee” sees Hogan playing himself and on the brink of receiving a Knighthood for services to comedy. “Don’t do anything to mess this up,” his manager tells him. However, despite all his best efforts, the next six weeks sees his name and reputation destroyed.

It is to be directed by Dean Murphy (“Charlie & Boots,” “Strange Bedfellows”) who is producing alongside Nigel Odel. International sales are to be handled by Los Angeles-based KMI.

Executive producers are KMI’s Kathy Morgan, Christopher Figg and Robert Whitehouse from London’s Piccadilly Pictures, Sherman Ng from Singapore’s Salt Media and Andrew Mackie and Richard Payten from Transmission Films. Fulcrum Media Finance and other equity partners complete the financing.

No supporting cast has yet been announced. “Watch this space as I’ve been honored to have many of my friends and colleagues, whose work I adore, agree to join us for this hilarious new adventure,” said Hogan in a statement.

Hogan has been largely absent from film and TV for much of the last decade, though earlier this year he appeared in “That’s Not My Dog!,” an ensemble comedy celebrating the art of joke telling.

Wait, it's called "The Very Excellent Mr Dundee", but it's a meta film about Paul Hogan, the comedian?

As a fan of the original Crocodile Dundee films, I would go see a feature length version of the Super Bowl spots in a heartbeat. This film, not so much.

I wonder if Crackle will even bother to pay for the rights to stream this.

Sheer idiocy. BRB let's not do the project everyone went apeshit about, instead let's do one that sounds awful.
