yes!!!!!!!!!! weird, because just a few months ago they were talking about making a macguyver movie (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4459), but this to me is much more exciting. i'd go just for the theme song.Newsday wrote:Will Forte of 'SNL' to play MacGruber in movie
'MacGruber," the recurring "Saturday Night Live" skit that parodies "MacGyver," is one step closer to going before cameras as a big-screen movie.
Ryan Phillippe is in negotiations to star in the feature, with Val Kilmer in negotiations to join the Relativity Media production. Will Forte and Kristen Wiig are reprising their roles from the skits.
The "MacGruber" sketches starred Forte as MacGruber with Wiig as an assistant who always find themselves, along with that week's guest star, in a control room with a ticking bomb. MacGruber gets sidelined by personal issues, and the bomb goes off.
In the movie, the legendary MacGruber is pulled out of retirement as a monk in Ecuador by a colonel, who needs him once more to fight on behalf of his country.
The film harks back to an earlier era when comedies based on "SNL" skits were commonplace, especially in the wake of the success of 1992's "Wayne's World."
