“It’s Time To Go Pound Some Cunth.”

Variety is reporting that NBC’s fledgling streaming service, Peacock, is getting its very own series based on MacGruber.

The upcoming series will bring back star Will Forte to pick up duties in the title role. He’ll be reunited with the film’s director, The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone, who’s slated to write and executive produce the project alongside Forte and John Solomon.

Currently in development, Variety reports –

“In MacGruber, after rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot MacGruber (played by Forte) is finally released. His mission: to take down a mysterious villain from his past—Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber, Vicki, and Piper must race against time to defeat the forces of evil, only to find that evil may be lurking within.”

The original MacGruber started more than a decade ago as an SNL skit parodying MacGyver, starring Forte. The idea eventually expanded into a full-length feature film in 2010, co-starring Forte’s former SNL castmate Kristen Wiig along with Maya Rudolph, Val Kilmer, and Ryan Phillippe. Though the movie was a box-office flop, it slowly became a cult classic and is a personal favourite of mine.

Here’s the trailer for the 2010 movie –

Despite Taccone’s enthusiasm, it hasn’t been confirmed whether Wiig or Phillippe will reprise their respective roles of Vicki and Piper.

MacGruber is just one of many reboots Peacock has in store. The streaming service has already lined up remakes of Battlestar Galactica and Saved By The Bell and is exploring another stab at The Office as well.
