Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte (BABY MAMA, THE BROTHERS SOLOMON) brings SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action-comedy MACGRUBER.
After the death of his fiancee, Casey (Maya Rudolph -AWAY WE GO television's SNL), 10 years ago, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands and become a man of peace. Informed by his previous commanding officer, Colonel Faith (Powers Boothe - SIN CITY, TVs 24), that his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that's been stolen by his sworn enemy, black market arms dealer Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer - KISS KISS BANG BANG), MacGruber comes to the conclusion that he's the only one tough enough for the job.
Assembling an elite team of experts - Lt Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe - CRASH) and Vicki St Elmo (Kristen Wiig - KNOCKED UP, WHIP IT) - MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.
Making his feature film directorial debut with the action-comedy is SNL writer/director Jorma Taccone. He is joined in screenwriting duties by Will Forte and John Solomon (television's SNL, EXTREME MOVIE). Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels (BABY MAMA, MEAN GIRLS) produces the film with John Goldwyn (BABY MAMA, television's DEXTER).
