STARRING Will Forte, Val Kilmer, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe
WRITTEN BY John Solomon, Jorma Taccone, Will Forte
DIRECTED BY Jorma Taccone

The feature-length adaption of the Saturday Night Live parody skit (starring Will Forte as a MacGyver-ish action hero) will be fashioned out of more than just a paper clip, two pen caps, and a can. It also has Val Kilmer as an evil mastermind who’s stolen a nuclear weapon. Kristen Wiig plays the love interest, while Ryan Phillipe hunts for a comedic career reboot, Tom-Cruise-in-Tropic-Thunder style, as Lt. Dixon Piper. (Get it?)
