“MacGruber” Will be Hard-R Comedy
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on September 1, 2009
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.
