Director David Sandberg’s new Kung Fury movie is rounding out its cast with all-star talent as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Fassbender and David Hasselhoff have signed on to the film (via THR).
The new Kung Fury is a follow-up to the cult 2015 short that was set in 1985 featuring Kung Fury, the toughest martial artist cop in Miami, who goes back in time to kill the worst criminal of all time – kung fuhrer Hitler.
In the new Kung Fury, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be playing the American president, Michael Fassbender has an unknown role, and David Hasselhoff, who sang the original theme song, “True Survivor,” returns for the sequel as the voice of Hoff 9000.
Watch the original short below.
Kung Fury is an over-the-top 80’s action comedy that was crowd funded through Kickstarter. It features Kung Fury, a Kung Fu renegade cop who travels back in time to kill his Nemesis, Hitler. The film features nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners. The campaign that was launched in December 2013 was backed by more than 17,000 people who together gave more than $630,000.
