This has to be some kind of joke, right? There’s no way that any sane studio exec would green-light the return of one of cinemas most charismatic characters by casting Danny McBride as his son? No way. It HAS to be a joke! Well, it appears that it may be legit as a short teaser trailer for DUNDEE: THE SON OF A LEGEND RETURNS HOME starring McBride has arrived and it’s as awful as you had feared. Have a look:

According to a report over at People (you can find the link here) Danny McBride will star alongside the returning Paul Hogan as Mick Dundee to carry the franchise over to a new generation. It really has to be a sick joke but if true then what other classic 80s heroes can be resurrected folks? Son of Rambo (not that other one, no), Ferris Bueller’s Kid Bunks Off, John McLane and Son Go Nuts? Oh wait, that last one did get made and was an abomination!

Apparently DUNDEE: THE SON OF A LEGEND RETURNS HOME will hit cinemas in the summer. But it must be a joke, right? Strike back below…
