However, despite all his best efforts, the next 6 weeks sees his name and reputation hilariously destroyed.
Joining Paul on this rollercoaster of a film is comedy legends John Cleese and Chevy Chase, another Downunder icon Olivia Newton-John joining a cast of Aussie favs including Shane Jacobson, Julia Morris, Rachael Carpani, comedy star Jim Jefferies and a few more surprise cameos.
“ The Very Excellent Mr.Dundee sees Australia’s favourite larrikin Hoges joined on the big screen by true legends of comedy – what’s not to love? Paul Hogan is an Australian icon, and we’re delighted to continue our association with this living legend,” said Transmission Films Joint Managing Directors Andrew Mackie and Richard Payten.
