Ladies and gentlemen…President Schwarzenegger!

Okay, so while this is wishful thinking, one aspect is true. Arnold Schwarzenegger is playing the President of the United States in Kung Fury 2, the feature-length sequel to the rave-reviewed short film that was released in 2015 and starred David Sandberg as the titular character, a 1980s-era martial arts kicking police officer.

The original short film, available to see on YouTube, garnered over 33 million views and was given major acclaim by fans. Sandberg had planned a sequel and last year, it was announced that it would be a feature-length film which would bring Sandberg back to the role along with the aforementioned Schwarzenegger along with X-Men: Apocalypse co-stars Michael Fassbender and Alexandra Shipp.

Schwarzenegger took to this Twitter to show his first look as the President in the film, which is currently shooting in Bulgaria and Germany. Plot details are unknown at this time, but Kung Fury 2 is gearing for a 2020 release date.
