It’ll be a busy production year for Arnold as he’ll be doing many reps of filming in 2018 so 2019 will be a fantastic year of Schwarzenegger releases! In addition to Terminator 6, Twins 2 and Outrider, Arnold has also just signed on to star in the full-length feature film of the viral hit, Kung Fury!

Arnold will star alongside Michael Fassbender, David Sandberg and David Hasselhoff in the action comedy. Sandberg will direct and produce under his Laser Unicorns’ banner.  Arnold will play the President of the United States. David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Aaron Schmidt will produce under their KatzSmith Productions banner, following the smash 2017 IT, which grossed over $700M globally to become the biggest horror film of all time.

The sequel to the original short, which as over 40M views worldwide, will shoot this summer. Kung Fury is co-written by Sandberg and Tyler Burton Smith. The story is set in the 80s, which some may argue is Arnold’s greatest decade in his film career.

After the tragic death of one of their members 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 through space and time to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy, and defeat evil once and for all

Bloom is handling international sales and will introduce Kung Fury to buyers at the EFM in Berlin this week. Endeavor Content and CAA will handle North American rights.
