Kung Fury 2: Director David Sandberg teases sequel

Posted on

Remember Kung Fury, the bonkers half-hour movie about a time-traveling kung fu cop from Miami who fights Adolf Hitler? Well, it looks like we could be getting a sequel. 

David Sandberg, the Swedish writer/director behind Kung Fury, recently posted a photo of a script titled Kung Fury II: The Movie to Instagram. “Today, Kung Fury turns 1,” he wrote. “Today, the future is written… Stay tuned.”

The original film came from humble beginnings as a much shorter teaser trailer. Thanks to generous funding through Kickstarter, Sandberg was able to develop his concept into a 30-minute film, which screened at the Cannes Film Festival. It later found distribution on Netflix. 

“It’s extremely over the top,” Sandberg previously told EW. “I had these elements of robots and dinosaurs and mutants and stuff like that and thought, ‘How can I combine this into one film without it being too, like, just wacky?’ The ‘80s decade was such a perfect, crazy decade for this storyline. It somehow works.”
