MacGyver Comes To The Big Screen

New Line is developing a feature film version of 80’s TV series “MacGyver” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Richard Dean Anderson (“Stargate: SG-1”) starred in the original as an incredibly resourceful secret agent for the Phoenix Foundation who frequently would escape from dangerous situations with ingenious and lightning-quick engineering trickery using everyday objects.

No writer is presently attached but one is being sought who can combine both a serious and fun adventure movie with the acknowledgment of the character’s place in pop culture.

Raffaella and Martha De Laurentiis are producing along with series creator Lee Zlotoff.
