No one tells outback maniac Mick Taylor what to do, unless of course you happen to be Greg Mclean! The Aussie duo are back together as star and director respectively in slasher sequel 'Wolf Creek 2'. Production has begun on the follow-up and in this new behind the scenes shot courtesy of The Age, which you can check out below, we get our first peek at big Mick cosying up with his director. "I'm not really interested in gore and blood and stuff," Mclean tells the Australian site. "I'm interested in why the character [Mick Taylor] connected with Australian audiences. It's not about being a horror film - it's because Mick is about something else, something deep and dark in the Australian psyche."
"Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes an horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet: Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).
As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white-knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man."
