Has Wolf Creek 2 been greenlit!?

Alicia Malone is a Film Reporter, TV Host, Producer, Writer, Editor, and all around movie geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.

This is all very interesting – albeit hazy – news. Can’t even quite get a fix on where it all started, let alone nail down any kind of confirmation (it’s pushing 10pm at night here, so nobody from the production company are likely at their computers).

The last time we heard from “Wolf Creek” writer/director Greg Mclean was on the “Rogue” publicity trail. And then, the Melbourne-based filmmaker didn’t seem too keen on sequelizing his debut horror hit.

“You’ve got to top the first one – and seriously, how much horror can you handle?”, Mclean told us “If I did make “Wolf Creek 2? it would almost have to be unreleasable. Rated XXX. Banned all over the world. Never to be screened in public. That’s kind of intriguing.”

Surprisingly then, news hit the web tonight (What’s Playing and Moviegrrl Reviews have the few, brief details on the whisper) that Mclean and star John Jarratt are reuniting for a sequel. The script, co-written by McLean, is apparently in the can.

2005’s “Wolf Creek” revolves around three backpackers (Cassandra Magrath, Kestie Morassi, and Nathan Phillips) who find themselves held captive by a serial killer (John Jarratt) in the Australian outback. It is loosely inspired by the murder of Peter Falconio in 2001.

Nathan Phillips’ character was the only one to survive the lunatic wrath of Mick Taylor (Jarratt) in the film, so one would suspect he might be involved in the sequel.
