SNL's "MacGruber" Skits Get Big Screen Treatment

It looks like we'll be getting a MacGruber movie in addition to the MacGyver movie that was announced in March.

A big screen version of Will Forte's Saturday Night Live character has been greenlit. SNL cast member Kristen Wiig will continue to play her Vicki character, and Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe are in negotiations to join the cast.

The "MacGruber" skits parody the '80s television show MacGyver. The original series starred Richard Dean Anderson as a (now infamously) mulleted secret agent who used his scientific and engineering knowledge to piece together everyday objects to escape from dangerous situations.

Watch Anderson join Forte and Wiig in this MacGruber skit/commercial:
