Transmission Films is delighted to announce THE VERY EXCELLENT MR. DUNDEE, starring Australian icon Paul Hogan, will be releasing in cinemas nationally on April 30, 2020.
THE VERY EXCELLENT MR. DUNDEE sees Paul Hogan playing himself and on the brink of receiving a Knighthood for services to comedy. “Don’t do anything to mess this up”, his manager tells him. However, despite all his best efforts, the next 6 weeks sees his name and reputation hilariously destroyed.
Joining Paul is UK comedy legend John Cleese, US comedy legend Chevy Chase, the much loved Olivia Newton-John, Aussie favourites Shane Jacobson, Julia Morris, Rachael Carpani, comedy star Jim Jefferies, Die Hard’s Reggie VelJohnson, Seinfeld’s Wayne Knight with many big international stars also joining the fun with surprise appearances!
THE VERY EXCELLENT MR. DUNDEE is directed by Dean Murphy, who previously worked with Paul on Strange Bedfellows (2004), Charlie & Boots (2009) and That’s Not My Dog! (2018). Murphy, who co-wrote the script with Robert Mond, is also producing, alongside Nigel Odell.
An early look at some of the mischief Hoges gets up to, while trying to stay on his best behaviour is available with first look images, available now. Images also include shots of A-list cast members including John Cleese, Chevy Chase, Olivia Newton-John, Wayne Knight and Julia Morris.
“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.
“Audiences always have a great time with Paul when he’s on screen, but this film is particularly special. People ask what's true and what's not... What I do know is fact is certainly funnier than fiction!” said Director Dean Murphy.
