“Oh, that’s so awesome to hear,” Forte said. “We still very much intend to write MacGruber 2 and it seems like we have a very real possibility of getting it made. So that’s so exciting and once I’m done with this, my number one priority is to write MacGruber 2 with Jorma [Taccone] and John [Solomon].”
“A very real possibility” is more than Forte has said in the past. He’s been talking about writing the script as a fun writing exercise, since MacGruber’s box office take makes it unlikely a studio would finance it. Universal released the first film, but there are other avenues open to the sequel.
“Made with whoever will let us do it,”Forte said. “There’s several different avenues that are possibilities and I don’t want to divulge too much more than that. It seems very real, the possibility of it, and so I’m very excited because I look forward to that very, very much.”
