MOVIE NEWS ... MACGRUBER
The bumbling MacGruber will be blowing up at your local cineplex this April, courtesy of SNL and Universal Studios. MacGruber is, of course, the popular Saturday Night Live sketch parody of the 1980's tv series MacGyver. Will Forte stars as special agent MacGruber, who has sworn off fighting with his bare hands for a decade, ever since his fiancee was killed. But now, the U.S. government needs his help to retrieve a warhead stolen by his nemesis, Dieter Von Cunth, played by Val Kilmer. Assembling an elite team of experts-Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig)-MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.
