Michael Fassbender to star in Hollywood Kung Fury sequel


Magneto and Hasselhoff and mullets, oh my!

Kung Fury, for the uninitiated, is a 2015 crowd-funded short film that pays homage to 80s cop and martial arts movies. It's solid gold shit, the best of bad movies, but coming in at only 31 minutes in length, it's never been able to call itself a 'movie,' only a short, until now. It's been announced that Michael Fassbender has joined the cast of a sequel in an unknown capacity. Kung Fury himself, creator, writer, director, and producer David Sandberg will also return.

So will David Hasselhoff.

When Kung Fury was created, there was a stretch goal of $1M to create a feature length film; tragically, the campaign fell well short of the feature benchmark and backers got 31 precious minutes instead. Now, with the backing of the dudes at KatzSmith Productions, rich off their It bank, Sandberg and fans will get the Kung Fury movie they deserve, you know, with awards-level actors, actual studios, and real fucking ninjas.
