Will Forte MacGruber 2 Jorma Taccone

Based on the repetitive Saturday Night Live sketch by the same name, MACGRUBER really had no business being as funny as it was. Even so, the film obviously wasn't everyone's cup of tea as MACGRUBER failed to to recoup its $10 million budget. Since then the film has gathered up a cult following and the prospects of a sequel have been brought up again and again. Will Forte has said that getting a sequel off the ground was a priority to him and last year he began working on an outline with MACGRUBER director Jorma Taccone.

It looks as though that outline has progressed to the script stage as Taccone posted several updates on Twitter which show Forte and himself getting to work.

Although I haven't seen MACGRUBER since its release and wouldn't count it among my favourite comedies, I'm totally down for another bizarre adventure with MacGruber and his gang of misfits. Of course there's no guarantee that the MACGRUBER sequel will see the light of day, but everyone involved seems very passionate about getting it there. Let the throat ripping begin, again.

Are you excited about a possible sequel to MACGRUBER?

I liked the movie a lot, but I don't think we need a sequel. Actually, it's weird to read this the day after we discussed how the MILLENIUM sequels haven't been made. I didn't like any of the 4 adaptations, but I recognize that the 2011 movie does need a sequel. Also, I don't know if after 6 years enough people will be interested in a sequel.

Hopefully it pokes fun at MacGuyver Jr

MacGruber comes out of retirement to kick the ass of some young kid who knows nothing about why MacGruber was so awesome and is turning his legacy into a generic show...

Btw. That new show really sucks.

MacGruber had its moments, but not my kind of comedy...

I honestly have tried to go back to this film after hearing the diehard fans praise it, but it just doesn't click for me. Never been able to get on board with its brand of humor.
