Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillippe
After taking over the Super Bowl, Saturday Night Live's favorite inept spy, MacGruber, is ready to explode onto the silver screen — perhaps with a former Caped Crusader in tow.
Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe are in negotiations to star in the film, co-written by MacGruber himself, SNL star Will Forte, who will reprise his role, according to the Hollywood Reporter. SNL's Kristen Wiig will also join as his always imperiled assistant.
Watch MacGruber in action now
Kilmer would play a nuclear warhead named Cunth, who has also killed MacGruber's bride. Phillippe would portray a colonel who coerces MacGruber out of retirement to stop Cunth (and presumably to exact revenge).
Watch Will Forte discuss the movie
SNL writer and Lonely Island member Jorma Taccone, who co-wrote the script with Forte and John Solomon, will direct the film. Lorne Michaels will produce.
Do you want to see the bumbly MacGruber on the big screen? And who will hit theaters first: MacGruber or MacGyver?
