KUNG FURY 2 Gains Big Investor and Production Start Date

Have you watched Kung Fury? It is one of the most random 30 minutes of my life. I love it and I hate it at the same time. It is a paradox. However, it’s getting a sequel, and at Cannes, Kung Fury 2 scored a big investor: Creasun Entertainment USA. In addition, the film has a production start date of July 29 in Bulgaria and Germany. David Sandberg is returning as both director and titular star with other cast members including Michael Fassbender, Eiza Gonzalez, David Hasselhoff, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here’s the description for Kung Fury 2:

[T]he action is set in 1985, the best year ever. Miami is 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. But 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.

Sandberg co-wrote the sequel with Tyler Burton Smith, and this sounds just as ridiculous as the first one. There’s no release date announced yet, and I’m still not sure if this is going to be a theatrical release or optioned to a streaming service. What are your thoughts on Kung Fury and Kung Fury 2?
