The new trailer, which arrived last week, shows McBride stepping into the shoes of Paul Hogan and using the famous "That's not a knife..." line.
The trailer dropped seemingly out of the blue with no fanfare, causing some to think it might be a promotion or advertisement for something, masquerading as a trailer.
However, in an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Hogan said: "Crocodile Dundee is a film that has stood the test of time. It was a defining moment in my life and one of my proudest accomplishments.
"Throughout the past few years, I've been thinking about how to bring Dundee to a new generation. I'm excited to introduce the new Crocodile Dundee to the world and look forward to sharing more news about those involved very soon."
It seems legit to me, I mean, how many reboots have we had in the past couple of years? Surely the time is right for Brian Dundee?
According to the website dundeemovie.com the sequel will also star Chris Hemsworth as Wally Jr.
The on-site synopsis for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home reads: "Crocodile Dundee is back. Well, actually, he's missing in the Outback. And the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouth American son no one knew he had. Introducing Danny McBride as Brian Dundee.
"This son of a legend is forced to channel his Aussie roots as he teams up with a local expert, Wally Jr., played by Chris Hemsworth. Together, they'll embark on the ultimate adventure in the land down under.
"It's time to live up to the family name."
The film, if it even is a film, has also got a bunch of associated social media accounts, which have been posting photos:
