These days 'SNL' movies are a bit few and far between (come on, 'MacGruber 2'!), but at least some of their success lives on with legendary classics like 'Wayne's World or 'The Blues Brothers.' There have been 11 'SNL' movies total over the course of the last 40 years, but how well do you think you know the late-night sketch comedy legend's cinematic history? Test your knowledge with the latest installment of ‘You Think You Know Movies?‘
A few weeks ago, ScreenCrush broke the news that 'MacGruber' director Jorma Taccone was interested in bringing his spectacularly mulleted comedy hero back to the big screen despite the first film massively underperforming (let's face it, bombing) at the box office. Yesterday, Jeremy Smith from Ain't It Cool News asked MacGruber himself, Will Forte, about the situation and he received a more realistic response.
'MacGruber' didn't make much of an impact when it hit theaters back in 2010. In fact, the headline the morning after was "'MacGruber' Bombs." But a funny thing happened over the past two years: people realized 'MacGruber' is actually hilarious (seriously it is!) and the film developed a cult following.
And because of that devoted following, the unthinkable is happening: director Jorma Taccone and star Will Forte are developing a sequel.
