Arnold Schwarzenegger joins Michael Fassbender in Kung Fury

Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined Michael Fassbender and David Hasselhoff in the growing cast of the feature-length Kung Fury movie

Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined Michael Fassbender in the cast of a feature film that will be adapted from the cult-favorite digital short Kung Fury. Schwarzenegger's fellow '80s icon David Hasselhoff has also been confirmed for the film.

Four-time Terminator, one-time Predator hunter, and two-term governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger is joining the cast of the 80s action tribute, playing none other than the President of the United States. Oh, and David Hasselhoff makes a cameo and stars in the True Survivor music video from the movie. A foe, Adolf Hitler a.k.a. Kung Führer, then enters the plot unleashing a real good-vs-evil action war that also sees Kung Fury sent back in time, to both the Viking Age and Nazi Germany. The film is a continuation of David Sandberg's short action-comedy that paid homage to '80s crime and martial arts films.

THR understands that the Terminator, Predator and Total Recall icon (and former California governor) will play the American president in David Sandberg's action-comedy, set to shoot in Europe and in the US this summer. Swedish filmmaker Sandberg, creator of the short, will also star as the titular hero (the "greatest damn cop of all time") in the new iteration, alongside Fassbender, and produce under his Laser Unicorns banner.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014, the film debuted at the 2015 Cannes Directors' Fortnight. They will be joined by Conor McCaughan and Philip Westgren of B-Reel Films while Pelle Strandberg of Laser Unicorns will be the executive producer.

Terminator Genisys was a critical flop, but Schwarzenegger is positive that the next film in the franchise will be one that fans will appreciate. The feature film version will take place in 1985 Miami and deal with the breakup of the Kung Fury's (Sandberg) Thundercops squad following the death of a teammate.
