Deadline reports the actress will join the cast of the film, which comes from writer/director David Sandberg. The movie will also feature Arnold Schwarzenegger and David Hasselhoff.
"Kung Fury 2" is the follow-up to Sandberg's YouTube short, "Kung Fury." The action-comedy is set in 1985 Miami, which is kept safe under the watchful eye of Kung Fury, the greatest cop of all time. His Thundercops are the ultimate police force assembled from across history to defeat the villainous Kung Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler.
After the tragic death of one of their members causes the group to disband, a mysterious villain emerges from the shadows to aid in the Fuhrer’s quest to attain the ultimate weapon. Kung Fury must travel through space and time to save his friends, defend the prestigious Miami Kung Fu Academy, and defeat evil once and for all.
Shipp is replacing Eiza Gonzales in the film. She'll play Rey Porter, a news anchor who will do anything to get the best story.
