Michael Fassbender Joins David Sandberg's Action-Comedy “KUNG FURY”



BLOOM announced today that Academy Award Nominee Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Alien: Covenant, Steve Jobs) 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.

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. Hasselhoff is best known for playing Mitch Buchannon on NBC’s “Baywatch” and for his lead role on the Primetime Emmy Nominated series “Knight Rider”.

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
