Petitions exist for lots of things. It doesn't mean they'll happen. Isn't that right, Firefly fans?

This makes me happy, although I know my view is unpopular.

Also, Chris Hemsworth is pretty.

Only if it is him vs nature, survivorman style

Only if it can be done without Danny McBride.

3820 Signatures so far! Numbers that'll get any Hollywood Exec out of their chair.

Jesus. We suck as a society. We're done. We can't even remember Crocodile Dundee 2, and yet we wanna make a 4th sequel on the basis of McBride and oh-yeah-they're-Australians. Crowded House or INXS or the soundtrack? Screw it, let's get Icehouse and Kylie, too.
 
2018-02-05 09:56:42 PM  
Couple of things:

1) Chris Hemsworth is the new Nic Cage.  He simply won't say NO to a role.
2) Crocodile Dundee isn't worth this kind of sequel.
3) Young Einstein however......

Don't laugh, that's more than it took to get Fantastic Four 2 and Superbabies.

Look, if we start doing EVERYTHING the freaking internet asks for that's a tentacle-covered slippery slope. Besides, didn't we learn from Kangaroo Jack that a single gag can't sustain a whole freaking movie.

He got leathery. Which is what Paul Hogan is. Ipso facto, Paul Hogan became himself.

Looks pretty much the same to me. Keep in mind Crocodile Dundee was over 30 years ago.

I would be happy with a movie, even just a television episode, of nothing more than Hemsworth, Jackman, and Robbie sitting around drinking beer and telling stories.
 
2018-02-05 10:34:56 PM  
The original movie came out in 1986, so if they had a kid he'd be about 30. Danny McBride is about 10 years too old. Also, he's not funny.

Anybody involved in such a production would be on permanent boycott from me. I know no one cares, but I'd feel better knowing that I enacted all of the consequences I could

He was great in Vice Principals, which was created by him and his costar. The role fit his personality to a T. What I saw of Eastbound and Down seemed like it was good fit too, although I didn't last many episodes. His best roles are when he plays a selfish, crude, obnoxious guy. Too much of a rewrite for Dundee.

Today's what makes it funny. He plays it as the guy from East bound and down or the pothead from pineapple Express. He's an American from the southeast who is now somehow an outback guide. Same accent and everything. If you explain why you ruin the whole damn thing. No one would ever have the balls to do it.

I used to think that, but I really loved McBride in Vice Principals. He and Walton Goggins just played off each other so well.

A Crocodile Dundee sequel is a sure-fire winner.

Fark: Hollywood out of ideas, so many reboots let me tell you all about how I never go to the movies anymore.

Also Fark: we need a sequel to this movie because I saw a commercial

It worked well for what it was intended to be - a tourism promotion. It's got lots of people talking, and probably fondly remembering at least the first film, and that might be enough for some of them to decide to come here for a visit. Great.

Now, as far as a real film is concerned, I'm sure the actors *could* do it (but it would cost a fortune in actors' fees - apparently the Aussies all did these clips for standard equity rates, but they wouldn't do a feature for that sort of money), but I doubt there's any writers out there who could make it stretch for 90 minutes. We're good at taking the piss out of ourselves and others, but you'd need a solid plot to go with the jokes, otherwise it'll fall flat after 10 minutes.

Why did I read that in Danny McBride's voice?

Huh

I was asleep when the Superbowl came on at 11:30 pm

I'd have rather seen a version of Mick's kid from LA goes to the outback after 30 years or so

Fox is also a vindictive arsehole company. Sci-fi or Syfy whatever just throws lunch money at ideas. I wouldn't doubt companies who like money make meme movies, like Snakes on a Plane.

Crowded House was from New Zealand.
Better off getting Midnight Oil or the Saints.

At first, I was pissed they'd made this.  Then, I was glad when I heard it was possibly fake.  Then, as they released more trailers, I wanted it to be real, since it seemed like it wouldn't suck.  After the long trailer, I've come around to the thinking they need to make this movie, exactly as laid out in the trailers, because it wouldn't suck.
 
2018-02-06 12:41:22 PM  
I think McBride is farking hilarious. I'd happily watch anything with him in it.

His last few lines in Pineapple Express crack me the fark up and it takes a lot to make me laugh, like bust a gut full on belly laugh.
