Will Forte Says “There Will Be Some Form of MACGRUBER 2″

     April 9, 2013

MacGruber has had an interesting journey from an easily dismissed adaptation to box office flop to cult hit.  It continues to rack up devotees who happily quote it and know what “KFBR392″ means.  But despite these fans, MacGruber 2 looks highly unlikely.  Last June, star and co-writer Will Forte said he didn’t think any sane person would fund it, but he added that they were definitely writing the script within the next six months.  Forte can always look forward to fans asking about a sequel, and he recently provided an update while doing press for his upcoming drama, Run and Jump.

Hit the jump for what Forte had to say about MacGruber 2.  Forte will next be voicing a new character in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and he’s playing the lead in Nebraska, the new film from Alexander Payne (The Descendants).

“We are going to make MacGruber 2 for sure,” he says. “Whether we have to do it with a video camera in our backyards – there will be some form of MacGruber 2.”

Somehow, a Macgruber 2 shot with video cameras in someone’s backyard sounds amazing.  If the first movie would be the guy MacGruber envisions himself to be, then the sequel would be who he actually is: low-rent, cheap, and goofy. Presumably, everyone would have to park on a street without meters.

If you think Kickstarter would be the way to go on getting the movie made, director and co-writer Jorma Taccone was way ahead of you:

“Jorma [Taccone], the MacGruber director, he had the idea to do a Kickstarter like two years ago,” Forte laments. “He kept saying ‘We should do a Kickstarter’ and we were like ‘Yeah, maybe at some point.’ He’s always ahead of the curve. That’s the lesson you learn — always listen to Jorma.”

While I’m not comfortable with studios using Kickstarter, I can’t deny the appeal of seeing donation rewards like “I will suck your dick”, “I will let you fuck me”, “You can get fucked by me”, “You can watch me fuck something,”, “Just tell me what you want me to fuuuuuuuck!”
