Mick Taylor is back, mates! Via press release we learn that the rumored WOLF CREEK mini-series is in fact a reality - so much so that it's already commenced production! The series - which will consist of six one-hour episodes - will premiere exclusively on streaming service Stan in mid-2016, with all episodes made available at once.
Here's the plot:
Wolf Creek, a six-part drama series, is a psychological thriller set in the world that fans of the films will recognise – but this time things are different. At first the pattern is familiar: Mick Taylor targets an American tourist family to terrorise and destroy. But the tables are turned when 19-year-old Eve survives the massacre and starts to rebuild her shattered existence by embarking on a mission of revenge.
Australian Lucy Fry, known to international audiences for Vampire Academy and Mako: Island of Secrets, will star in the lead role of Eve. John Jarratt (Wolf Creek 1 & 2) will reprise his role as Mick Taylor, alongside an outstanding cast including Dustin Clare (Strike Back, Anzac Girls, Spartacus: War of the Damned), Deborah Mailman (Offspring, Redfern Now, The Sapphires), Miranda Tapsell (Love Child, Redfern Now, The Sapphires), Jessica Tovey (Wonderland, Dance Academy, Home & Away), Jake Ryan (Wentworth, Fat Tony & Co, Underbelly: Razor) and Richard Cawthorne (Catching Milat, Fat Tony & Co., Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms).[>
Nick Forward, Stan’s Content and Product Director, said: “Wolf Creek is a truly world-class production featuring international-calibre talent and helmed by two of Australia’s finest directors, Greg McLean and Tony Tilse. We can’t wait to bring this new Stan Original series exclusively to our subscribers next year.”
