True Survivors Get Excited – Kung Fury 2 is in the Works

Last year’s Kung Fury, besides being a massive Kickstarter success, was probably one of the most entertaining comedies to come out in a long time. I mean, it was a fabulous pastiche of ’80s action films, absurdist comedy, and surprisingly engaging fight scenes (not to mention a pretty amazing theme song). I could talk more about it, or (if you haven’t seen it) you could just watch the half hour long short film right now and keep reading afterwards:

Pretty amazing, right? Well that film dropped a year ago, and fans have been clamoring for more. Creator and Kung Fury star David Sandberg had previously expressed a desire to do a feature length follow up to the short, and it looks like that’s finally moving forward.

Earlier this week, Sandberg posted the following to Instagram:

Today, Kung Fury turns 1… Today, the future is written… Stay tuned #happykungfuryday

That’s right, there’s totally a script now for Kung Fury 2, and I, for one, am pretty damned excited. I mean, sure — I don’t know if the joke will work in a longer format, but with how much I enjoyed the first installment, I’m more than willing to give this sequel a shot.

We’ll be following this one pretty closely.
