Death Fighter is a proposed sequel to Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, based on Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The film was, to a certain extent, announced in the fall of 2008. So far, there has yet to be an official plot summary, despite claims by some fans.

In 2015 series creator Dave Willis indirectly confirmed that the project was scrapped. He expressed interest in possibility using Kickstarter to fund it.

Statements

So far, [adult swim] has confirmed almost nothing about the film. Over the years there have been several interviews and statements from both Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro, and other staff members about the it.[1]

On December 15th of 2008, an interview [2] with Dave Willis was released. Dave Willis stated that he hadn't written any kind of script with the film being released in Spring 2009. It is unknown if he was serious about this, as he also stated that Death Fighter was actually a T-shirt Matt and Dave were working on. In April 2009, Dave joked about "Aqua Teen Hunger Force II: Death Fighter" not being funded and likely being sold out of the back of his car in an extremely casual interview.[3]

In a 2010 interview, staff members of Radical Axis confirmed that a sequel was indeed in production, and mentioned the possibility that the film might be made in 3-D. When asked if the film was designed for a theatrical release, a Radical Axis staff member responded yes, but stated "We're not sure if we have a distributor yet". This was then followed by the statement "Adult Swim will never make another movie ever again".[4] In July 2012, series co-creator Matt Maiellaro said of the sequel, "It is all written and great. We are just trying to convince the network do it again. The first one was such a cash cow for them, not just box office but also ad sales in the movie. So it is kind of a no-brainer. So hopefully one day."[5]

In June 2012,[6] Dave revealed that most of the script of this sequel was written and approved. He gave an insight as to why it has been taking them so long to finish the film. "The thing is that when we made the last movie we made like two episodes in two years ... I don’t know if the movie suffered, but I think the show suffered ... If we could figure out a way to do it and not cripple the show you know yeah. [sic]. We like to script. [sic] It’s funny."

In July 2012, series co-creator Matt Maiellaro said of the film, "It is all written and great. We are just trying to convince the network do it again. The first one was such a cash cow for them, not just box office but also ad sales in the movie. So it is kind of a no-brainer. So hopefully one day." [7]

In January 2014, Dave Willis stated that the film would be released in mid 2015 and jokingly said it got shelved because it wasn't G-rated. [8]

In April 2015 at a C2CE convention panel Willis indirectly stated that the project was scrapped, soon after announcing the show's cancellation.[9] He later mentioned it would cost 3.4 million dollars to produce, and expressed interest using Kickstarter to fund it.[10]
