Dean Murphy’s “The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee”, starring Paul Hogan and a star-studded ensemble (including Chevy Chase, John Cleese and Olivia Newton-John), will go direct-to-digital in Australia.
It comes after the film’s scheduled April cinema release was cancelled due the closure of movie theaters as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Hoges’ plays a fictionalized version of himself in the film.
“Transmission Films has a long and esteemed history of unearthing great Aussie storytelling across different genres and supporting the local filmmaking industry and we’re honoured to partner with them so audiences can enjoy Paul Hogan’s latest comedy,” said Tyler Bern, Head of Content Australia, New Zealand at Amazon Prime Video.
“Australian and NZ Amazon customers love Paul Hogan and we are thrilled to be bringing The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee to households across both countries as part of our growing content line-up for local Prime members.”
