The X-Men: First Class star will play the leader of the Thundercops, time-travelling law enforcers who have to fight the evil Kung Fuhrer (Adolf Hitler). However, it went on to become a hugely successful cult hit, clocking up over 40 million views. The feature, which will be a sequel to the original short, is set to shoot this summer in Europe and the U.S. David Hasselhoff, who also appeared in the short, is expected to return. Put The Snowman and Assassin's Creed aside - Fassbender is an incredibly talented actor and he should make this role a lot of fun to watch. Original director Sandberg will direct and also star, while it's being produced by David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith and Aaron Schmidt - the team behind KatzSmith Productions, who had huge success with IT previous year.More news: Leo Varadkar promises Schwarzenegger: 'I'll be back'
