As of last week, the possibility of a movie based on ‘MacGruber,’ was just an insanely stupid idea, something that was being “looked at.” But now it looks as if it’s about to become insanely stupid reality.
Will Forte tells Jimmy Fallon that the film based on the “SNL” sketch has been written [by Forte, John Solomon, and Jorma Taccone (of The Lonely Island)] . “We’re going to make it in Albuquerque,” he says. “It’s me and Kristin Wiig and cast to be determined.” But he was quick to point out: “It’s maybe a little different than what people are thinking.”
And by that I can only hope he means “not incredibly lame”. They should make it an origin story. It could be two guys sitting on a couch, and one says, “Hey, dude, remember MacGuyver?” It would be… rather short.
