We’ve heard rumors of this, but tonight SNL star Will Forte confirmed that not only is a movie version of his popular “MacGruber” sketch happening, he’s already finished writing it.

Forte appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, introed with a MacGruber clip and played on stage to the tune of the MacGruber theme song. Fallon wasted no time in asking whether there’d be a MacGruber movie and Forte confirmed, “John Solomon, Jorma Taccone, and I just finished writing it. We’re gonna make it in Albuquerque. It’s me and Kirsten Wiig and cast to be determined.”

So this means bad hair and plenty of explosions right? Maybe not. Forte says “It’s maybe a little different than people are thinking.”

There was a time, back in SNL’s 90s golden age, when they cranked out movies based on popular characters at a ridiculous pace. Sometimes it worked and we got Wayne’s World, most of the time it didn’t, and we got Stuart Saves His Family. But it’s been more than ten years since we’ve had a real Saturday Night Live movie. Now that SNL is suddenly relevant again, it looks like Lorne Michaels has the big screen bug up his ass again.

In case you’ve missed out on the genius that is MacGruber, I’ve include a few of his best moments embedded below. It’s hilarious as a short sketch but a MacGuyver parody doesn’t really seem like something that lends itself to a feature length movie, and besides, doesn’t MacGruber stop being funny when Will Forte fails to kill himself in the first sixty seconds? For MacGruber to work, Will Forte must die, and die fast.
