Image Entertainment has acquired WOLF CREEK 2 at the 2013 American Film Market. Original helmer and writer Greg Mclean returns to the sequel along with John Jarratt, who plays the film’s original antagonist. Shannon Ashlyn, Ryan Corr, and Phillipe Klaus also co-star.
“We are thrilled to work with Greg Mclean on the follow-up to his superbly made first feature film,” said Image Entertainment’s Chief Acquisition Officer, Bill Bromiley. “Mick Taylor is one of the most sadistic characters I have seen on screen and the sequel does not disappoint – it gets under the skin, we can’t wait to show horror fans!”
WOLF CREEK 2 is scheduled for a 2014 release; no specific date has been listed.
The sequel to the smash box office hit, WOLF CREEK 2 reunites viewers with the Australian outback and the film’s murderous bushman. The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-shooter Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).
WOLF CREEK 2 is co-written by Greg Mclean and Aaron Sterns and produced by Helen Leake, Steve Topic and Mclean.
The deal was negotiated by Mark Ward, Jess De Leo and Bromiley on behalf of RLJ Entertainment, by Ben Weiss at Paradigm, and by Peter Nelson and Joel VanderKloot at Nelson Davis Wetzstein LLP on behalf of the filmmakers.
