David Sandberg teases Kung Fury sequel

The 2015 crowdfunded hit Kung Fury has finally got word of a sequel as creator David Sandberg posted an image this week of the sequel’s script wrapped by the eponymous hero’s red bandana.

The English-language Swedish short film was written, directed and acted by creator David Sandberg and follows his journey fighting through a dystopian city where he faces arcade robots, dinosaurs and even Hitler. It’s basically every 80’s cop-martial arts film condensed into thirty minutes of exuberant, hyper-violent, visual decadence.

The film was funded by a Kickstarter campaign which received more than three times it’s requested $200,000 budget and half-hour end product has since amassed (at the time of writing) almost twenty-five million YouTube views. Sandberg’s film was also first screened at Cannes and eventually found its way onto Netflix for distribution.

The news of the sequel comes with the one-year anniversary of the films release, but for now there’s no news on whether the project will be crowdfunded or of a potential release date.
