SNL skit pegged for movie

Usually in the MacGruber skit on "Saturday Night Live" he only has 15 seconds to put household items together to prevent an explosion. He always runs out of time. So, now he'll have as much as 2 hours: the length of a movie. Variety says a "MacGruber" movie is in the works. Like in the sketches, Will Forte will star with Kristen Wiig and her stopwatch.

Variety says Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe are in talks to be part of the movie.

The "MacGruber" skits are a take-off of the "MacGyver" TV series from the 1980s.
