BLOOM announced today that Academy Award® Nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Alien: Covenant) will star in David Sandberg's action-comedy Kung Fury, which Sandberg will also star in and produce under his Laser Unicorns' banner, alongside Fassbender. 

David Hasselhoff ("Baywatch", "Knight Rider") will also join the cast following his role in the original short film Kung Fury, which was a Kickstarter record-breaking success, was selected for Cannes Directors Fortnight and has gained over 40 million views worldwide.  The feature, which will be a sequel to the original short, is lensing this summer.

David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Aaron Schmidt will produce under their KatzSmith Productions banner, following their enormous success with IT, which grossed over $700 million worldwide, becoming the largest grossing horror film of all time as of last year. Philip Westgren of B-Reel Films and Conor McCaughan will also produce.

It's 1985, the best year ever. Miami is kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury, 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 travel space and time itself to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy, and defeat evil once and for all.

Fassbender is a two-time Academy Award Nominee for his roles in Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs alongside Kate Winslet and Steve McQueen's critically acclaimed 12 Years a Slave. He can most recently be seen in Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller Alien: Covenant for Twentieth Century Fox.
