Argent Pictures has joined upcoming action-comedy Kung Fury 2 as a financier and producer, with shoot due to get underway in September.
Sandberg plays Kung Fury, Fassbender will be his partner Colt Magnum, Schwarzenegger is the ‘Viking King’, David Hasselhoff plays part of the Kung Fury cop team who will transform into a car and Eiza Gonzales plays a reporter with a complicated relationship to Fury. Hitler has yet to be cast.
Argent’s Renzo said, “In many ways Kung Fury 2 is a love letter to the 80s in a unique, genuine and super creative tone that is refreshingly different and will standout for moviegoing audiences. We absolutely love it and love that Michael, Arnold, Eiza and David are going to be bringing Sandberg’s fantastic creation to life in epic fashion. Clearly, audiences of every age love this as well, as evidenced by the over 40 million online views and a rampant and growing fanbase asking for more ‘Kung Fury’. This is an amazing bundle of content and we’re excited to join the super talented producing team to deliver a fan-pleasing movie that stays true to the original.”
