Kung Fury, the WTF internet sensation inspired by ’80s action movies, is getting a feature-length remake/sequel, and it’s found the unlikeliest of stars: Michael Fassbender. Fassbender, who will also produce the film, will co-star with David Hasselhoff. We’re not making any of this up.

Hot on the heels of Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff hoping that Robert Rodriguez could direct him in a Logan-esque film adaptation of the beloved 1980s TV series featuring the Baywatch star as an aged Michael Knight, we have news on the development of a Knight Rider movie, but it’s not going to make David Hasselhoff happy at all.
The Weinstein Company is reportedly taking a crack at making a Knight Rider movie, but rather than taking a more serious approach, the project will follow in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street by making it an action comedy. Furthermore, they want to put John Cena behind the steering wheel as Michael Knight and they’re considering Kevin Hart to provide the voice of the talking car called KITT. Read More »
David Hasselhoff is currently back in the spotlight for a presumably limited amount of time thanks to his cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, More importantly, Hasselhoff has even more fun performing the disco track “Guardians Inferno” on the film’s soundtrack, not to mention starring in the supplemental music video on the home video release. And the former Baywatch star is using the opportunity to talk about the hopes he has for a big screen adaptation of a familiar property he starred in back in the 1980s.
Knight Rider is a fan favorite show from the 1980s that hasn’t yet had a successful update on film or TV like many other shows from the same decade. If David Hasselhoff had his way, there would already be a successful reboot of Knight Rider, and he’s doing everything he can to try to make it happen. Just recently, we heard Hasselhoff had tried to convince Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to be at the helm of a Knight Rider movie, but now he wants Robert Rodriguez to direct, and he knows exactly which movie he wants to emulate.

With the home video release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 arriving this month, director James Gunn has been making the publicity rounds all over the place to talk about the Marvel Studios sequel. Just this weekend brought a far-out music video for the “Guardians Inferno” disco track from the film’s soundtrack, and you can see Gunn shaking his groove thing all over the place.
Thankfully, James Gunn was able to sit still for a little bit to talk about the developing cosmic movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 soundtrack the role that he wanted David Bowie to play before the musician sadly passed away, and how the Mary Poppins reference came to be included in the movie. Plus, “Guardians Inferno” star David Hasselhoff reveals he’s been trying to convince Gunn to tackle a Knight Rider reboot. Find out all about these tidbits below. Read More »
When the news came that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be arriving on home video this month, director James Gunn teased one wild special feature the likes of which had never been seen on any Marvel Studios movie before. That special feature has now arrived in its entirety online.
James Gunn created a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 music video inspired by the original disco song “Guardians Inferno” by a group called The Sneepers, featuring none other than Star-Lord’s fictional father David Hasselhoff. This is a full fledged retro music video created in the same style as real hit disco songs from the 1970s, and it’s so weird and glorious. Watch it below! Read More »

Once upon a time, Baywatch was one of the most popular television shows in the world, which made series star David Hasselhoff one of the most watched actors in the world. Pamela Anderson’s C.J. Parker may have grabbed all of the headlines, but it was Hasselhoff’s Mitch Buchannon who served as the show’s constant center, appearing in every season of the original show before making the jump to the ill-fated Baywatch: Hawaii. He was a known commodity before this series (Knight Rider, anyone?), but the man’s legacy will ultimately revolve around him running shirtless on a beach in extreme slow motion.
And since he probably doesn’t have anything better to do these days, Hasselhoff officially signed on to appear in the upcoming film version of Baywatch a few weeks ago. Now, set pictures have arrived online, showing him standing alongside the one and only Dwayne Johnson. This is what happens when two completely separate pop culture hemispheres collide.

Even though Pamela Anderson is still figuring some things out regarding a potential appearance in the forthcoming Baywatch movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, one of the stars of the original TV series isn’t wasting any time locking down a role in the movie.
A David Hasselhoff Baywatch cameo of some sort has been confirmed, and this comes straight from the set of the movie from Dwayne Johnson himself. So there’s no need to hassle The Hoff about whether or not he’ll be part of the movie. Read More »
The original Sharknado was ironically entertaining, making for some absolutely ridiculous, intentionally terrible, B-movie fare. The success of the mind-numbing, inconceivable action horror film resulted in Sharknado: The Second One. And now we’re in the midst of a trilogy coming together.
Since the weekend is usually reserved for making decisions that you’ll immediately regret, you couldn’t ask for a better time to watch the first teaser trailer for the unnecessary made-for-TV sequel Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, chock full of cameos from Hollywood’s worst.
Check out the Sharknado 3 trailer after the jump! Read More »

There’s still no word on when Stretch might make its way to theaters or VOD, but in the meantime director Joe Carnahan has been doling out delightful tidbits for us to enjoy. The more he reveals, the stranger this film looks, and we definitely mean that as a compliment.
The latest Stretch scene may just take the cake, though. It involves an epic profanity-laced rant from David Hasselhoff, who is apparently none too pleased with Patrick Wilson‘s lack of respect. Hit the jump to watch the new Stretch clip featuring David Hasselhoff, plus a few more scenes.
