Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe in talks for 'MacGruber'

Posted on

Saturday Night Live‘s MacGruber is about to explode on the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Will Forte’s recurring sketch parody about an easily distracted MacGyver-type has Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer in its sights for a full-length adaptation. Phillippe would play an Army colonel who recruits the jaded MacGruber (Forte) for a mission to stop a nuclear-armed villain, conceivably played by Kilmer. Kristin Wiig will reprise her supporting role, Lorne Michaels will producer, and Jorma Taccone, who helmed most of the skits on SNL, will direct.
