What in the name of all that's holy is happening in this world? Crocodile Dundee is not a beloved property by any stretch of the imagination. Even if you love the original, its two sequels are borderline unwatchable. In keeping with the  series tradition of terrible sequels, 2018 is bringing us Dundee starring Kenny Powers himself, Danny McBride.

Okay, so there's a lot going on here. Lots to take in and digest, though I warn you, there's a distinct possibility that it's all coming up again in an hour or so. Danny McBride—who has proven himself good at playing one thing: dickhead hillbillies—is playing the son of Paul Hogan and Linda Koslowski? Oh wait, what's that imdb official synopsis?

Crocodile Dundee is back. Well, actually, he's missing in the Outback. And the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouthed American son no-one knew he had. Introducing Danny McBride as Brian Dundee. This son of a legend is forced to channel his Aussie roots as he embarks on the ultimate adventure in the land down under. It's time to live up to the family name.

Okay, so he's the bastard child of Paul Hogan and someone else whom McBride clearly takes after. Also, Mick Dundee came to New York City in 1986. I'm supposed to believe that Danny McBride is 31, 32 tops? Get out of my face with that. Also, wasn't he more or less smitten with Koslowski's character, to the point where he turns down sex with other women? 

Alright, here's another one. Check out McBride's character page from the official website...

"Brian grew up a true city kid." Um, what city are you expecting me to believe McBride is from? New York City? What section of the city did he grow up in, Little Arkansas? The dude's a hillbilly through and through. Don't make me buy him as a New York City kid. Please. 

To be completely honest with all of you, I'm not even sure this is real. There's nothing about this that says to me it's an actual movie that's actually being made. It feels like a giant prank to coax Paul Hogan out of retirement.
