Wolf Creek set for a third installment says Greg McLean

It’s the Australian cult horror film based on cold-blooded psychopath character Mick Taylor.

And now Mick is set to be re-booted once more for a third installment of Wolf Creek, director Greg McLean has confirmed. 

The film producer said on Sunday that a screenplay is ‘ready to go’ and become Wolf Creek 3, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

Greg said the story of the second season will need to be finalised before a third movie can be worked into the ‘Mick Taylor universe’.

‘There is a story arc we are working on in the second series and so it all has to work together … if the movie happens, it may be next year, that would be a good time to get it out,’ he said.

Greg added that the series’ villainous star Mick is a figure of intrigue among fans, and is therefore ripe for a return.

‘The character of Mick is so fascinating, people are compelled to see this guy they love to hate,’ he explained.

‘We don’t want to be beating a dead horse but he is such an evil man so there is a lot of different directions we can take that character without him getting too boring.’ 

Wolf Creek ventured into television last year, debuting as a six-part series on Stan that attracted more than 500,000 views in its first week. 

And it’s set for its second season to premiere on the streaming service over the Australian summer, with actor John Jarret reprising his role as Mick.
