Will Forte and Writing Partners Are Locking Themselves in a Room to Write ‘MacGruber 2’
While Will Forte’s SNL spinoff action-comedy MacGruber didn’t do so hot at the box office when it was released three summers ago, the movie has gone on to become a cult hit and a favorite amongst comedy nerds. Forte and Company first began talking about MacGruber 2 last year, and today, he tells Rolling Stone, “June 10th my writing partners John Solomon, Jorma Taccone and I are locking ourselves in a room and writing it.” He added, “We were happy with how the original came out. I guess you wouldn’t call it a success but people got to see it, sometimes you just have to be happy with that.” Forte also revealed that he’s talked to original cast members Kristen Wiig and Ryan Phillippe about coming back for the second installment. He hinted last month at the possibility of a MacGruber 2 Kickstarter but that was before the whole Zach Braff Kickstarter debacle, so I’m assuming that plan is out now. Here’s hoping Will Forte is able to get the gang back together.
