Arnold Schwarzenegger Jumps on Board The KUNG FURY Sequel!
A few days ago we learned that Michael Fassbender joined Dan Sandberg's feature film, the Kung Fury sequel. Today it's been announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be joining him in the retro Kung Fu adventure. He will be playing the President of the United States!
This is a pretty epic cast so far! The director of the film, Sandberg, is also set to star in the movie, and David Hasselhoff, who was in the original film, will also be back. It's kinda crazy to think that Fassbender, Schwarzenegger, and Hasselhoff will all be in the same movie together! I guess if there's one movie that can make that happen, it's Kung Fury.
The movie is an homage to the 1980s and the crazy martial arts films that came from that era. The new movie will be set in 1985 in Miami, which is being "kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury, the greatest damn cop of all time. His Thundercops are the ultimate police force assembled from across history to defeat the villainous Kung Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler."
After the tragic death of one of their members causes the group to disband, a mysterious villain emerges from the shadows to aid in the Fuhrer’s quest to attain the ultimate weapon. Kung Fury must travel through space and time to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy, and defeat evil once and for all.
There's no word on who Fassbender will be playing in the movie, but I can't wait to find out. The film will start shooting this summer and I can't wait to see what other actors end up joining the project!
David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith, and Aaron Schmidt will produce under their KatzSmith Productions banner, which most recently produced Stephen King's IT. Schwarznegger is also set to reprise his role as the Terminator in Tim Miller's upcoming movie.
