If you ever find yourself drowning in debt with loan sharks and debt collectors you will do anything to get yourself out of the hell. Would you kill a celeb or actor if it got you debt free? Me personally Adam Sandler but for Ken Jeong, it’s The Hoff and today we get the first UK trailer for Killing Hasselhoff. Are you ready to pick your celeb target? Who needs PPI when you can do this?!
We had ‘Kill Kieth‘ a few years ago as people tried to ‘off The Cheggers’, now it’s the man who fronted one of the most popular Saturday primetime TV shows, Baywatch. A show that was very popular with Dads and Sons probably thanks to the female cast in their red cossies. (Editor note – I don’t hate Sandler personally just the tripe he pretends to call movies). Do we need another comedy about pretending to kill off a celeb or will the Americans do a better job?
When Chris (Ken Jeong) a struggling nightclub owner, fails to pay back a debt to a loan shark, he decides that in order to get the money; his only option is to kill his entry in an annual ‘who will die this year’ celebrity death pool; David Hasselhoff.
What started out as a regular week quickly turns into the worst few days of his life as, aided by his friends Fish (Rhys Darby – Flight of the Conchords, The Boat That Rocked) and Tommy (Jim Jeffries – Tainted Love, Legit), Chris desperately tries everything he can to off the master of the slow-mo run and claim the jackpot.
Along the way, he’ll find out that killing ain’t easy, especially when your target is… The Hoff!
Killing Hasselhoff will get a limited UK and Irish cinema run from 18th September with the movie available to own on Blu-ray and DVD from 2nd October.
