Considering its subject matter and the fact that it earned less than $9 million domestically, it was really easy to make jokes about MacGruber bombing. However, ever since, the film has been developing quite the cult following, especially in the comedy community, because it’s so gosh darn hilarious. Which is why the idea of a possible sequel is particularly exciting. Director Jorma Taccone told Screen Crush:
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.
