Will Forte shoots down your hopes for a MacGruber sequel

MacGruber flaming banner

It was revealed just a few weeks ago that MACGRUBER director Jorma Taccone was hoping to work with Will Forte to develop a Christmas-based take for the sequel and that “it would be a shame not to do another one,” news which was received with enthusiasm by many a reader on this site.  I’m sorry then that it is my sad duty to report to you that MacGruber himself had this to say at the 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 their right mind would give us any money for it. If somebody gives us money for it–
Andy Samberg: I’ll give you a thousand bucks right now.
Will Forte: There is going to be a MACGRUBER 2 then. Funded by Andy Samberg.
Andy Samberg: On a flipcam.”

Forte went on to add that “there might be ‘one alternate universe in a series of parallel universes’ where MacGruber 2 could get made,” but that’s not where we live and so I wouldn’t hope too hard for further celery stick shenanigans in cinemas.
