Schwarzenegger joins "Kung Fury"

Arnold Schwarzenegger

David Hasselhoff will also be seen in Kung Fury.

The feature is a sequel to that short film, starring Fassbender as "the greatest damn cop of all time", Kung Fury, who has assembled the police force known as "Theundercops" to defeat Adolf Hitler - until a mysterious villain arises to aid Hitler's quest for the ultimate weapon, sending Kung Fury on a journey through space and time itself.

Bloom is handling worldwide sales on Kung Fury and introducing the project at the European Film Market in Berlin, where THR has heard buyers are already buzzing over the script. The Hollywood Reporter states that action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger will appear in the film as the American president. It had earlier been announced that the film will star Oscar-nominated Michael Fassbender in a pivotal role. Those funds financed a 30-minute short film, which premiered on YouTube in 2015 and immediately went viral, notching more than three million views in a single day.

― AFP picLOS ANGELES, Feb 17 ― Action hero actor of the 1980s and '90s, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is joining the cast of action comedy Kung Fury II, a feature-length sequel to 2015's cult hit short. The consummate 80s action star has signed on to join Fassbender and David Hasselhoff (who returns from a cameo in the short). Kung Fury is being produced by David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Aaron Schmidt. They will be joined by Conor McCaughan and Philip Westgren of B-Reel Films while Pelle Strandberg of Laser Unicorns will be the executive producer.

Terminator Genisys was a critical flop, but Schwarzenegger is positive that the next film in the franchise will be one that fans will appreciate. "Just move away from all these rules of the timeline and other characters".
