American Distributor Image Entertainment has bought the US rights to Greg Mclean's Aussie thriller "Wolf Creek 2".
Roadshow Films will release the film in Australia on February 20, 2014 - no word yet on the release date in the US, but it will also be 2014.
In an interview with IF
, Mclean said:
"My co-producer Helen Leake and I are very excited to be working with Image. They are a super smart company who specialise in the genre space, saw and loved the movie, immediately recognising the picture's potential broad appeal with US audiences. The first movie played extremely well here in the States and we can't wait till Mick is unleashed once more."
"Wolf Creek 2," the sequel to the Aussie low budget horror flick "Wolf Creek," was shot in South Australia and sees John Jarratt return as anti-hero Mick Taylor. Australians in Film's 2011 Heath Ledger Scholarship winner Ryan Corr (Packed to the Rafters) also stars.
