While most Saturday Night Live characters that attempt to make the leap to the big screen go down in flames (let's not even talk about It's Pat), this is one transition we're excited for:
A MacGruber movie is on the way!
Will Forte will co-write the film version of his bumbling spy, while Kristen Wiig will reprise her role as Vicki for the feature. Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe are in talks to join the cast.
Forte debuted the parody of the 1980s action-adventure series MacGyver in 2007. The character was used in a Super Bowl ad for Pepsi in 2009. Dude is hilarious.
