Michael Fassbender has joined the cast of the action-comedy Kung Fury, alongside David Hasselhoff, which is based on the cult 2015 short film of the same name.

The original short film from Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg was partly funded using Kickstarter and was selected to screen as part of Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes film festival.

The film paid homage to 1980s martial arts and police action films and starred writer/director Sandberg in the title role, with a cameo appearance by none other than Knight Rider and Baywatch TV icon David Hasselhoff, who also sang the film's theme tune True Survivor.
