MacGruber 2 to make a sequel out of nickels and dimes

05.22.2012

If you never saw the first MACGRUBER, then don't feel left out.  Not many people did.  However, the Will Forte comedy has slowly started to build a cult following since it hit video and cable, bringing in viewers who kept their distance during the theatrical run.  It barely made two nickels to rub together, but that hasn't stopped its influence from spreading. 

Despite the lack of box office success, director Jorma Taccone is developing a sequel to the film with star Will Forte.  "It would be me, Will and John [Solomon] writing it again. Every time I hang out with Will, we talk about all our cool ideas for the sequel. We have the idea for it and we have a title, but I won’t tell you what it is."

Taccone didn't reveal much in terms of where the story would go, but did reveal that, in the spirit of his favorite film, DIE HARD, the sequel would take place during Christmas.  He also said that they wouldn't be going down the "baby" route just yet, after MacGruber and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig) hooked up at the end of the first film, so you can rest easy there.

The original starred Forte as the character of MacGruber, which he created on SNL in a series of skits that mocked the famed TV MacGuyver.  It's probably one of the more successful SNL skit-to-screen transitions in that it really pulls out the stops with an R-rating and some pretty raunchy content.  Usually, they play it pretty safe.

Although Taccone is developing a number of other projects and Forte has just signed on to star in director Alexander Payne's next film, Nebraska, he says,“It would be a shame not to do another one," and that the pair would eventually find time to get MacGruber and his Miata back on screen.

What do you guys think?  Do we really want another MACGRUBER or is the first one enough?

Extra Tidbit: The last five minutes of MacGruber is actually the saving grace for me. Up until that point I felt it was "mildly amusing." Anyone else feel the same?

Thumbs up for the folks in the "saw Macgruber in the theater club!"

And yeah, set this in a hi-rise during a Christmas party and just do Mac-doing-Die Hard. It'll be awesome.

"Well, I bet you wish your nose was a dick... "

I've said since the moment I first saw this (on DVD sadly) that it was destined to become a wild cult classic. After 2 years, I started to believe that I was wrong. I hope that I was right because this movie is criminally underrated and under seen.

"We made a fucking movie...MAGRUBER!"

I still have vivid memories of the theater. Me, my dad, and two other people in the entire theater. And this was opening weekend.

I think this might be my favorite Ryan Phillippe role. He made such a great, and damn convincing straight man.

Loved it...

I really think it is more than just a one trick pony. If they actually do a die hard style sequel, it could be one of those rare occasions where 2 is better than 1.

"Hope you enjoy being date raped ma'am"

YESSS! This movie is DISGUSTINGLY underrated! I always find myself watching this everytime its on HBO. Will Forte and the rest of the cast really killed their roles.

"I'm gonna cut your dick off and shove it in your mouth!"

The last five minutes were freaking hysterical overkill, literally.

Loved the first one!

Perhaps because I didn't expect to. I don't think they'll be able to get
Wiig back for anything more than a cameo though.

I for one agree with you Paul. Although, admittedly- I didn't make it until the end.

This is great news. I saw this in the theater and oddly, I don't remember laughing that hard in a movie, maybe ever? The part with the notebook was sick brilliance.

FUCK YES!

MacGruber is one of the most absurd and hilarious movies I've ever seen. I was very disappointed it flopped as hard as it did, but if they wanna make a sequel, I'm all for it!

You're loco, man!
(You're crazy, man!)

One of Those Nickels was Mine

I can actually say I'm one of the handful of people who saw it in the theater opening weekend no less. I was so upset when it tanked, but felt that once it hit cable people would discover it and they have. It makes no excuses for what it is. Its balls out funny. And sometimes, literally there are balls out. I left so hard with the celery stalk scene that I couldnt breathe. Really looking forward to the sequel.

Well I'm sorry. But they were fucking great guys, and this has been one fucking Asshole of a day.

Grower

This film really grew on me. I saw on HBO and thought it was a decent time waster, but then I kept watching it whenever they played it and it got funnier.

This movie owns...

This movie was fuckin so funny. It's so stupid, so out of control you can't help not to laugh. It's not for everyone, but for those who have a very good sense of humor will love it. I'm all in for another one.

I don't know if it even got into cinema's in the UK but I caught it afterwards and thought it was... ok. I watched it again about 2 weeks ago and thought it was hilarious, not sure why. Glad it's getting a sequel and will definitely check it out.

This movie had NO RIGHT to be as funny as it was.

Me and my friends went to see it because we thought it was gonna be a piece of shit to make fun of the whole time. We were just dumbfounded by the end, it was beautiful. It joins Wayne's World as the only 2 SNL films that are worth a damn.

This movie hit my funny bone hard....

The epic combination of mullets, explosions, 80's music, gory mutilations, Kristen Wiig, one-liners and General Powers Boothe made this a comedy gem for me.

Sorry Paul but I couldn't get past the first half hour.. sitting on the toilet felt like a much better way to spend an hour near crap.

On the other hand... Kristen Wiig is just too perfect, funny sexy talented

I never thought in a million years you would get a sequel to this, but I'm totally stoked for it to happen. I didn't like the skit on SNL, didn't see the movie the one week it was out in theaters, but I've watched it about 20 times on HBO now and I think it is pretty genius. It is really fucking dark and absurd and hilarious. One of Kilmer's better roles. I would be excited to see another one. Hpoe it happens.
