By all accounts, MacGruber
was a failure. A feature comedy born out of an SNL
sketch, the film couldn’t even make back its budget, not to mention it received a lashing from critics. However, in the years since its 2010 release, it’s found itself amassing a pretty large cult following, and now, it seems that we’ll be getting that much requested sequel.
We’ve had a few updates over the years on the status of the film, but with nothing concrete seeming to emerge, many thought that a MacGruber
2 was nothing but a pipe-dream. Putting paid to that idea is a new Tweet from Jorma Taccone
, who penned the original. If we’re to believe what he’s showing us, then it seems that the wheels are finally starting to turn on the sequel.
