If you haven’t seen Kung Fury yet, stop reading this article and watch below:
Now that you’re all caught up, news has been pouring in over the last week on the feature-length sequel to the short. Writer, director, and star of Kung Fury David Sandberg has recruited Michael Fassbender as Kung Fury, Arnold Schwarznegger as The President, and David Hasselholf as a now unknown role. (But no less outrageous I can imagine.) This is all starting to sound like Robert Rodriquez’s Machete series: a celebration of b-movies of yesterday with a surprising mix of high-caliber actors and genre stars. I mourned when Machete Kills died at the box office. But it looks like this will be more than enough to fill the b-movie-schlock-funded-by-a-big-budget part of my heart.
