While no plot or casting details have been revealed for MacGruber 2, writer/director Jorma Taccone has stated that he, Forte, and fellow writer John Solomon have been throwing around ideas for a while.

It is likely that a sequel will have a more positive initial reaction.

While MacGruber 2 awaits a greenlight, Will Forte can be seen in a supporting role the upcoming film The Watch. Take a look at The Watch redband trailer for more.
