The original Kung Fury movie took the world by storm. It was an extremely successful crowd-funded project by writer/director David Sandberg. Kung Fury is on over the top homage to 80’s action movies. It is full of cheesy one liners, crazy supporting characters, and a mega bad guy villain. The movie is set in 1985 Miami. A beat cop is hit by a bolt of lightning while simulataneously being bitten by a king cobra. This, of course, results in him gaining supernatural martial arts abilities. He sets out to stop Kung Füher (a martial arts enhanced version of Adolf Hitler) with the help of Hackerman (a computer hacker that enables him to travel through time) and Triceracop (a triceratops police officer).
The movie did so well they are working on a sequel. The sequel is full of big name stars. Alexandra Shipp, Michael Fassbender, and Arnold Schwarzenegger have all signed on to star in the sequel. David Hasselhoff is also on board to reprise his role. The official movie description from Laser Unicorns (the actual name of the movie production company) is below:
1985 Miami is kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury and his Thundercops, the ultimate police force assembled from across history to defeat the villainous Kung Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler. After the tragic death of a Thundercop sees the group 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.
Kung Fury 2 is currently in pre-production in Bulgaria and is set to film in Germany. There is no release date yet, but rest assured I will be at the front of the line when it hits theaters.
