The Last Stand

Story by Jack Foley

ARNOLD Schwarzenegger has reportedly been lined up to star alongside Michael Fassbender in Kung Fury, the feature-length follow-up to the cult 2015 short.

Fassbender was confirmed as the star earlier this week, while The Hollywood Reporter had revealed that Schwarzenegger is to play the American president in David Sandberg’s action-comedy, which is set to shoot in Europe and in the US this summer.

Released in 2015, Kung Fury proved to be a Kickstarter record-breaking success. It was selected for the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes and has gained over 40 million views worldwide.

The feature film will reportedly be set in 1985 in Miami, which is kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury, dubbed ‘the greatest damn 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 therefore travel through space and time itself to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy and defeat evil once and for all.

Joining Fassbender and Schwarzenegger in the film will also be David Hasselhoff, who appeared in the original Kung Fury and sang the theme song True Survivor, will also appear.
