Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the cast of “Kung Fury,” the upcoming feature adaptation of Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg’s cult 2015 action-comedy short.
The action is set in 1985 Miami, which is under the watchful eye of Kung Fury and his Thundercops – a police force assembled from across history to defeat the villainous Kung Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler.
After the tragic death of a Thundercop sees the group disband, a mysterious villain emerges from the shadows to aid in the Fuhrer’s quest to attain the ultimate weapon. Schwarzenegger will reportedly play the American president.
Michael Fassbender and David Hasselhoff have already been cast in the project which is set to shoot in Europe and in the U.S. this summer. David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Aaron Schmidt will produce.
