It has been nearly six years since the Aussie horror flick "Wolf Creek" turned the heads of genre film fans around the world. If you think the film about a group of backpackers held captive be a crazed serial killer was just for horror enthusiasts guess again. The film notched seven Australian Film Institute awards, including Best Director for Greg Mclean who followed up his debut shocker with "Rogue," a less impressive man-eating-alligator thriller that starred Sam Worthington. But Mclean is ready to head back to the film that put him on the map, as Mick Taylor is back to carve up more unfortunately travellers in "Wolf Creek 2."

It has been nearly six years since the Aussie horror flick "Wolf Creek" turned the heads of genre film fans around the world. If you think the film about a group of backpackers held captive be a crazed serial killer was just for horror enthusiasts guess again. The film notched seven Australian Film Institute awards, including Best Director for Greg Mclean who followed up his debut shocker with "Rogue," a less impressive man-eating-alligator thriller that starred Sam Worthington. But Mclean is ready to head back to the film that put him on the map, as Mick Taylor is back to carve up more unfortunately travellers in "Wolf Creek 2."

With financing now lined up Mclean returns with lead actor John Jarrat in tow for the film that will head into pre-production later this year, with a shooting start date of February 2012 marked on the calendar. Of course, exact details are being closely guarded -- producer Matt Hearn says, “We’re keeping story details top secret for now, but it is safe to say: scarier, bigger, badder” -- but this time around Mclean has teamed with Aaron Sterns (script editor on "Rogue") on the screenplay. You read the first official logline after the jump:

The outback once more becomes a place of mind-bending horror, action and suspense as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-shooter Mick Taylor.


We presume this means that "6 Miranda Drive," the no-budget supernatural flick that Mclean was attached to direct for Lionsgate earlier in the year in on hold. That film is a "Paranormal Activity" type story about a family who has a deal with a supernatural presence in their home and we think it's wise that Mclean didn't rush head first into that one. No word yet on a release date, but we'd guess a late 2012 or early 2013 release is likely. [Screen Daily]
