Kristen Wiig Is In for the 'MacGruber' Sequel

The idea of a sequel to Will Forte's cult hit SNL spinoff film MacGruber is definitely a hypothetical thing at this point, but his co-star Kristen Wiig said in a recent interview that she's interested in reprising her role for MacGruber 2, if it ever gets off the ground. Talking to Collider to promote The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Wiig says she's "hoping" the movie gets made and "Last I heard, they're working on a script, so I'm in … I loved making that movie."

Will Forte has been talking about making a sequel for a while now and told us recently that he's yet to get started [...]

Remember that 'MacGruber' Sequel We Were Super Excited About?!

Who would've guessed that the MacGruber sequel wire would be so hot these last few days? Thanks, That's My Boy's press tour. To recap: first, Jorma Taccone said that they were seriously talking about writing a MacGruber sequel but then Will Forte said it's incredibly unlikely because no one would ever pay for it. Well, yesterday, Forte spoke on the matter again:

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 [...]

Remember that 'MacGruber' Sequel We Were Super Excited About?

A couple weeks ago, Jorma Taccone said that they were seriously talking about doing a MacGruber sequel. This was great news for people who liked funny things and sex scenes. But then this happened at a press conference for That's My Boy:

Will Forte: As for MacGruber 2, it's very much in the works. We're just… no, I'm kidding. Jorma mentioned it. He was really tired one morning giving an interview, and he said something stupid about it. Believe me, we would love… we had so much fun doing that. We're proud of it, and we jokingly talk about the sequel all the time. But I don't think anybody in [...]

Will Forte: "There Will Be Some Form of 'MacGruber 2'"

While it bombed at the box office during its initial release, Will Forte's SNL spinoff MacGruber has grown into a cult favorite. Forte was asked about the movie this week by EW when promoting Run and Jump, an upcoming drama he's acting in. Forte had this to say:

"We are going to make MacGruber 2 for sure. Whether we have to do it with a video camera in our backyards – there will be some form of MacGruber 2."

With the recent success of the Veronica Mars Kickstarter, that could be a way the MacGruber movie could happen. Says Forte, "Jorma [Taccone], the MacGruber director, he had the idea to do a [...]
