Will Forte promises MacGruber 2 will happen "for sure"

Apr. 9, 2013by:

Looks like we may be getting further big screen adventures featuring Will Forte as MACGRUBER, even if they have to be made out of household materials. MACGRUBER!

During press for his dramatic turn in the indie RUN & JUMP, Will Forte was asked about the potential for a sequel featuring his mulleted MACGYVER spoof. He told Entertainment Weekly this:

We are going to make MACGRUBER 2 for sure, he says. Whether we have to do it with a video camera in our backyards there will be some form of MACGRUBER 2.

Forte kicked around the potential for a Kickstarter campaign to film the movie which he claims director Jorma Taccone had thought about a couple of years ago. In the wake of VERONICA MARS getting the greenlight because of the crowdsourcing campaign, could MACGRUBER generate a sequel the same way? Are there enough fans of the character to earn enough? The original MACGRUBER grossed $9.3 million worldwide on a budget of $10 million. I would have to say this may end up as some sort of Funny or Die series or potential direct to DVD project.

The SNL character and 2010 film featuring Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillipe, and Val Kilmer, is hilarious in short sketch format, but when expanded to a feature length movie, it suffered the same fate as movies like THE LADIES MAN, NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY, SUPERSTAR, and many more. I am a Will Forte fan but I found the original MACGRUBER an abysmal exercise in "comedy". It was painfully bad, but if it is on cable and watched in small bursts of a few minutes here or there, it isn't as awful.

Any MACGRUBER fans out there excited for this news?

plot

I'm go for a sequel, hopefully it'll be about the guy who's cut off Macgruber and got his car totaled because of it plotting his revenge.

If it was up to me, MacGruber would join the Expendables.

Couldn't finish it, not 1 joke in that disaster of a movie, not 1 smirk on my face. 1/10.

Underrated and Top Notch.

Just as long as we don't see any more objects sticking out of Ryan Phillippe's butt... Oh who am I kidding that was Gold.

20+ years too late.

I thought Hot Shots Part Deux was hilarious. MacGruber might have been amusing had I not seen that. Or not liked comedy.

great news

sorry Alex but that movie was priceless. from the theme song ("we made a fucking movie! MacGruber") to the pull out radio to the final, piss-soaked frame. i came into it wanting to hate it and loving it. try it again, maybe.
"I will suck your dick!"

Brilliant.

MacGruber is one of the most underrated comedies of all time. It is such a fucked up movie. It is extremely dark, bizarre and subversive. I loved it.

What do you want me to do to get this movie made? I will suck your dick, I will suck your fucking dick, just make the movie. I'll suck your dick, you can fuck me, you can get fucked by me. You can watch me fuck something? Just point at something in the room and I'll fuck it for you! Just tell me what you want me to fuck!

Hell yea

I don't know why people were so critical of the first movie, it was fucking hilarious. I'm really happy their doing another one. If you don't have a sense of humor just don't watch it and shut up.

I doubt we ever see a sequel to this. But I also thought we would never see a Veronica Mars movie, so who the hell knows at this point.

Bring it on. This movie was a blast from start to finish and deserved much more attention that what it got. it was a great spoof film. I guess people would rather pay to see another Adam Sandler film than see something that is actually a comedy.

I thought it was great.

Well, I for one thought "MacGruber" was absolutely hilarious. I own it on DVD, and watched it a few times since... My friends and I loved it.

Honestly, MacGruber competes with Wayne's World for best SNL movie. (granted they are the only two that didn't suck)

MacGruber had NO RIGHT to be as funny as it was.
