Who would’ve guessed that the MacGruber sequel wire would be so hot these last few days? Thanks, That’s My Boy’s press tour. To recap: first, Jorma Taccone said that they were seriously talking about writing a MacGruber sequel but then Will Forte said it’s incredibly unlikely because no one would ever pay for it. Well, yesterday, Forte spoke on the matter again:
I wasn’t prepared to answer anything about Macgruber 2 when I was talking to everybody on Saturday… I guess the best way to put it is the probability of us writing a Macgruber 2 script in the next six months is 100%. The probability of somebody giving us money to make that script is somewhat less than 100%. We would do it if someone were to let us do it.
We will definitely write a Macgruber 2 if only just to have fun…like people who are into sports will go out and play pickup basketball. Comedy nerds will go write scripts. We actually have some ideas written down already and a couple of scenes but we’ve got to figure out exactly what we’re going to do. We’re definitely going to write it. It’s just a matter of if anybody would ever let us make it.
