It Gets Weirder
Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined Michael Fassbender and David Hasselhoff in David Sandberg’s action-comedy, Kung Fury :The Movie. Sandberg will also star in and produce under his Laser Unicorns’ banner.
Schwarzenegger will apparently play the American president in the feature-length film. The film is set to shoot in Europe and the U.S. in the summer.
Set in 1985, Miami is kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury, the best cop of all time. Kung Fury’s Thundercops are the ultimate police force assembled from across history to defeat the villainous Kung Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler. After the tragic death of a Thundercop 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 space and time itself to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy, and defeat evil once and for all.
David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith, and Aaron Schmidt will produce the film.
I have to admit Im kind of excited for this project. They are definitely going all inn on this one. But I do fear that the concept will not be able to sustain a feature length film. We shall see.
