Today Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Geoffrey Rush, Nicole Kidman, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Jackman and many other talented Australians are building successful careers in Hollywood, and just thirty years ago, kangaroo immigrants were rare guests on the screens. The success of the adventure comedy " Crocodile Dundee " played a huge role in the emergence of Australian cinema on the international stage. According to The Guardian , Seven Network and FremantleMedia have decided to join forces on an as-yet-untitled miniseries about the life of Paul. Hogan , who glorified the green continent as a fearless crocodile hunter.|
In his youth, Hogan worked as a rigger on the famous Sydney Harbor Bridge. Once he answered the questions of the hosts of one of the television shows so wittily that the producers began to invite him to their new projects. Soon, Paul got his own sketch show, which aired from 1973 to 1984. The idea to create " Crocodile Dundee " came to him during a visit to New York. The cost of creating the ribbon is estimated at $ 8.8 million , and its worldwide gross is $ 328 million . It is noteworthy that in the struggle for the title of the highest-grossing film in the North American box office in 1986, the Australian hit lost only to "Best Shooter"
In January 1987, Hogan won a Golden Globe for his role as Mick Dundee , and just a couple of months later he was nominated for an “ Oscar "in the category" Best Original Screenplay ", but lost to Woody Allen with his melodrama" Hannah and Her Sisters ".
Hogan will be portrayed in the miniseries by Josh Lawson ("House of Lies" / House of Lies ), and Laura Gordon ("Saw 5") plays the role of American actress Linda Kozlowski, who played the journalist Sue Charlton in the 86th film. Paul immediately fell in love with his on-screen partner, and a couple of years later, the stars of " Crocodile Dundee " decided to tie the knot. Together they starred in two more films about the brave adventurer. If Crocodile Dundee 2 again became a real hit in the world box office, then Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles could not recoup the costs of its creation.
According to insiders, the bulk of the work on the television biopic of Paul Hogan will take place in the Australian state of Queensland.
