If you’ve ever wondered “Why so serious?” when watching an Arnie action flick, Killing Gunther might just stop your brain from going there this time.
Billed as an action comedy, it looks like a collision of action flick and This Is Spinal Tap mockumentary, and stars a bunch of familiar TV faces alongside the big Mr Schwarzenegger.
Arnie is the titular Gunther, a superstar hitman who’s the cream of the crop. If you’re up top though you’ll always have people gunning for you, and in this case a bunch of wannabe top dogs are literally gunning for Gunther. The only problem is, they’re not really very good at their chosen profession.
Joining Arnie are Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Allison Tolman (Fargo), Aaron Yoo (The Tomorrow People) and Saturday Night Live folk Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan.
The trailer gives the appearance that Killing Gunther could be a fun blast. At least it proves that the big guy really can laugh at himself…
