Kilmer fights MacGruber

Yesterday you heard the news that a MACGRUBER movie was coming to the big-screen to be directed by Jorma Taccone. Today we have some word on what the hell this movie is going to be about and who else is going to star.

Because every good hero needs a sidekick and a villain, Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer will co-star with MACGRUBER regulars Will Forte and Kristen Wiig in the film. Phillippe will star as Piper, an army officer forced to accompany MacGruber on his mission. Kilmer will play the film's main bad guy, Cunth, who has stolen a nuclear warhead (MacGruber is out to stop him because Cunth killed his wife). In the film, MacGruber is pulled out of retirement (where he's been living as a monk in Ecuador) to once again serve his country.

Forte and Taccone wrote the script with John Solomon and SNL head Lorne Michaels will produce. It's unclear yet whether the film will be set up at Paramount where all previous SNL films have been released.

There's been a lot of feedback that this movie is either awesome or terrible. What do you think? Do the additions of Jorm as a director or the casting of Phillippe and Kilmer help at all?

Extra Tidbit: They should get Michael Bay to direct MACGRUBER.
