Australian streaming service Stan is adapting grindhouse horror film series Wolf Creek for the small screen.
The six-part series will see John Jarratt return as psychopathic outback murderer Mick Taylor. This time around he targets a family of American tourists. Lucy Fry has been cast as the family’s 19-year-old daughter Eve who survives the attack and vows revenge. Also part of the cast are Robert Taylor (“Longmire”), Dustin Clare (“Spartacus”), Matt Levett (“Drown”) and Deborah Mailman (“The Sapphires”).
Inspired by several true life cases, Wolf Creek and its sequel Wolf Creek 2 feature psychotic murderer Mick Taylor, a man who preys on unsuspecting travellers passing through Wolf Creek National Park in the Australian outback. The two films have a cult following and Stan is hoping to build on this with the new series. Enjoy the trailer:
Wolf Creek will be available from May 12th.
