It’s just about that time of the year, folks. Sundance is back, which can mean but one thing: Taika Waititi has a new movie premiering there. Sure enough like death, taxes, and Robert Redford’s eternal handsomeness, Taika’s new picture “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” is hitting Park City in January. According to Variety his new flick’s about Ricky, a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together to survive. This new film sounds less like What We Do In The Shadows and more like Boy, which, the good news is, when it comes to Taika, whether it’s comedy or dramedy you know it’s gonna be good.
And that’s all the Taika news we have for you. Officially. On the record. That’s all he has going on right now. “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE.
