Director Reveals the Follow Up to 'The VelociPastor' is an LGBTQ+ Australian Vampire Movie, 'Outback Dracula', Part of a 3-Part Franchise!
We're getting that sequel to The VelociPastor, but it's not what you expect...
...If you've missed writer/director Brendan Steere's outrageous horror-comedy The VelociPastor, you've missed a treat, about a priest turned were-dinosaur who teams up with a hooker to take down a band of ninjas. And yes, it is just as insane as it sounds.
Steere has been teasing a sequel for quite some time, and today, via THR, we've learned that Steere's follow up to the film, while not VelociPastor 2, is still an exciting project that sounds just as bonkers! The film is titled Outback Dracula, and will be part of a 3-part, disconnected franchise which includes The VelociPastor! So, in a way, it IS a sequel.
In Outback Dracula, written by Steere and Jesse Gouldsbury:
"Begins in 1880s Australia, where a psychic, lesbian schoolteacher teams up with the world's greatest adventurer to find her missing girlfriend and to defeat Dracula and his Golden Army of the Undead."
Said Steere, "The movie will have the same insane, anything-goes tone as the first film that we all fell in love with."
The site notes that, while the film is not a direct sequel to VelociPastor, the original cast and creative crew — including Gregory James Cohan, Alyssa Kempinski, and Fernando Pacheco de Castro — will all be involved, both in acting capacities and in creative producing positions.
Steere is already at work on the third film as well for this three-part franchise which he relates to Edgar Wright's disconnected Cornetto trilogy.
While we wait to learn more, check out the trailer for The VelociPastor below, and stream the film on Prime if you haven't already!
