Killing Hasselhoff

Killing Hasselhoff is finally coming to the big screen! It will be the opening film for the San Diego Film Festival, which kicks off September 28 in California. 

The film is a dark comedy, and tells the story of a struggling nightclub owner in debt to a loan shark who sets out to win his long-running celebrity death pool by offing his chosen celebrity: David Hasselhoff. The film has been delayed because scenes featuring Hulk Hogan had to be edited out after the company released Hogan in 2015.

SDiFF screenings will take place in the newly renovated historic Balboa Theater and Regal Theaters in downtown San Diego, and at ArcLight Cinemas in La Jolla. Fest will run Sept. 28 through Oct. 2. It was founded in 2001 and is produced by the nonprofit San Diego Film Foundation.
