B-Reel's Philip Westgren is also producing in addition to co-star Fassbender and Conor McCaughan for DMC Film.
Argent’s Renzo said, “In many ways Kung Fury 2 is a love letter to the 80s in a unique, genuine and super creative tone that is refreshingly different and will standout for moviegoing audiences. We absolutely love it and love that Michael, Arnold, Eiza and David are going to be bringing Sandberg’s fantastic creation to life in epic fashion. Clearly, audiences of every age love this as well, as evidenced by the over 40 million online views and a rampant and growing fanbase asking for more ‘Kung Fury’. This is an amazing bundle of content and we’re excited to join the super talented producing team to deliver a fan-pleasing movie that stays true to the original.”Argent's attorney Lisa Nitti brokered the deal with Laser Unicorns' rep, Alan Sacks.
