What began as a big screen spin-off of a Saturday Night Live sketch has gained a cult following. It has been two years since MacGruber arrived and detonated in theaters and now it appears that devoted audience may be getting a sequel.
"It would be me, Will and John [Solomon] writing it again. Every time I hang out with Will, we talk about all our cool ideas for the sequel. We have the idea for it and we have a title, but I won't tell you what it is."
Taccone ruled out MacGruber and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig) having a baby saying, "We don't want to jump the shark that soon." He did however, reveal that the film, like Die Hard (Taccone's favorite film and a major influence on MacGruber), the sequel would take place during Christmas.
It is unclear when MacGruber 2 would move forward as Taccone is currently developing two other projects, including one for Adam Sandler. He adds that they will eventually make it because, "it would be a shame not to do another one."
Did you watch the first MacGruber? Would you be interested in a sequel?
