Geekery: ‘Kung Fury’ is Being Developed into a Feature

Want more laser raptors, talking cars, skateboards, and high kicks? You got it.

David Sandberg’s 30 minute, micro budget movie is getting an expansion. An expansion starring Michael Fassbender. David Hasselhoff is also included in the initial cast list – he created the theme song and provided his voice in the original short.

A little background: Kung Fury is an action comedy filled to the brim with 1980s movies tropes; and every ridiculous and nostalgic idea Sandberg could think of that would stick. It was crowd funded in 2013, and debuted at Cannes in 201. It’s more entertaining than it has any right to be.

… and it’s sustainable at 30 minutes. Not sure if it’s possible to turn it into a full length feature that won’t be repetitive, or spiral into a nonsensical mess. And yet… they have attached a big name to the project.

Is it stupid enough to be good?

  • It was kinda fun. No expectation for a feature. Maybe more music some how. Maybe they’ll add in silly commercials very Grind house?

    I suggest the Buddhist detachment route. A short film has a very different set of limitations from a full length film, so it’s impossible to say how well it will translate.

    Will go see in theaters if it’s promising enough though.

    a full feature might explain what the actual plot was, don’t get me wrong I liked the short, it just needs more substance to have an actual plot

      The plot was the fact that Kung Fury had to kill Hitler and watch out for Laser Raptors. Have to hack time.

    What’s so bad about a spiraling nonsensical mess? I mean, those Sharknadoes were awful, yes, but they were also fun 🙂

    I kinda loved this movie in all of it’s cheesy glory. How often do you get to see a person struck by lighting while being bit by a snake?

  • Elijah Herstal

    Silly movie that was more cringe than chuckle.

    If you like the setting of Warhammer 40k, how can you not love this movie? They’re cut from similar cloth.

    A bit worried about the full length feature (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it), but I’ll watch it. The first one was one of the best movies of that year.

    Masterpiece.

    For the glory of Dundee.
