The long-gestating follow-up ‘Kung Fury 2’ will begin filming July 29th in Bulgaria and Germany. They’ll likely be shooting primarily at the Nu Boyana Studios facility in Sofia, Bulgaria. But, other shooting locations could include Miami and Los Angeles.
The film is a sort-of sequel to the original crowdfunded short film ‘Kung Fury.’ David Sandberg (not the ‘Shazam!’ director) was the triple threat of writer, director, and actor, playing the titular character.
Moreover, the cast so far:
- Michael Fassbender (‘Steve Jobs,’ ‘Alien: Covenant’)
- Eiza González (‘Baby Driver,’ ‘Alita: Battle Angel’)
- David Hasselhoff (‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ ‘Baywatch’)
- Arnold Schwarzenegger (‘The Expendables 3,’ ‘Terminator: Genisys’)
Further, the premise is below:
“It’s 1985, the best year ever. Miami is kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury (Sandberg), the greatest damn cop of all time. His Thundercops are the ultimate police force assembled from across history to defeat the villainous Kung Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler. But after the tragic death of one of their members 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 through space and time to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy and defeat evil once and for all.”
Meanwhile, Sandberg returns to star, direct, and write, this time co-writing with Tyler Burton Smith (‘Quantum Break,’ ‘Child’s Play’).
There is currently no release date yet.
