Will Forte is asked about MacGruber 2 whenever he makes the press rounds to promote another movie. Last we checked, Forte said he met with MacGruber director/co-writer Jorma Taccone and they hammered out “a really solid first act.” At a junket for Forte’s new movie Life of Crime, Steve asked Forte straight up if the inquiries about a MacGruber sequel ever get old. Forte responded graciously, saying “it is very exciting because it means that people liked the first MacGruber.”
Forte went on to provide a status update about where he and Taccone are in the script process and reiterated their commitment to making MacGruber 2—if somebody will fund it. We’ll have the full Life of Crime interview up next week, but hit the jump for Forte’s MacGruber 2 update.
