NY Magazine spoke to Bill Hader (Superbad) about the upcoming “MacGruber” movie, which is based on an “SNL” sketch that spoofs “MacGyver” TV show.

“I read the script, and it’s like a hard-R comedy, and it totally works. It’s hilarious,” he said. “It’s kind of in the vein of, like, eighties action movies, like there’s a very definitive bad guy. I don’t know if I can talk about the plot too much, but it’s hilarious. The thing that kind of blew my mind about it is that it’s like a HARD-R movie.”

Plot: The legendary, much decorated MacGruber is pulled out of retirement as a monk in Ecuador by a colonel, who needs him once more to fight on behalf of his country. This time the mission involves going up against the evil Cunth, who has a nuclear warhead; the mission is personal because Cunth killed MacGruber’s bride.

The movie version would see Ryan Phillippe playing Piper, an Army officer forced to pair up with a reluctant MacGruber. Val Kilmer would be Cunth. “MacGruber” is scheduled to hit theaters April 16th, 2010.
