Production On ‘Wolf Creek 3’ Will Start Later This Year

by Thomas Tuna

The horror that is Mick Taylor is returning to the land Down Under.

Wolf Creek 3 will start shooting in south Australia later this year, according to Variety, with John Jarratt reprising his lead role as the bloody serial killer.

Altitude Film Sales has acquired worldwide sales rights to this latest film in the Wolf Creek franchise–that boasts the tagline, “There will be blood”–and will introduce the movie to buyers this week at the virtual Cannes Market.

Wolf Creek 3–from director Rachele Wiggins and screenwriter Duncan Samarasinghe–will follow an American family on a “dream trip to the Australian outback” that draws the unwanted attention of the murderous Taylor, according to the film’s synopsis. “A hellish nightmare ensues as the couple’s two children escape–only to be hunted by Australia’s most infamous killer.”

Wolf Creek franchise creator Greg McLean will produce the film through his Emu Creek Pictures banner, alongside Bianca Martino and Kristian Moliere.

McLean said he “couldn’t be more excited about the creative team” assembled for this chapter of the franchise. “Duncan’s compelling script, combined with Rachele’s directorial vision will deliver a horror roller-coaster ride sure to delight fans,” he said.

The original 2005 Wolf Creek–written and directed by McLean and starring Jarratt–was based on a real-life story of three people traveling through a remote part of Australia–Wolf Creek National Park. When they develop car trouble, the stranger who comes to their aid turns out to have very violent intentions.

Jarratt again played Taylor in 2014’s Wolf Creek 2, a sequel that spawned a TV series that ran for two, six-episode seasons starting in 2016.
