MacGyver Film Gets A Scribe

On the day that the spoof “MacGruber” hits theatres, a writer has been hired to pen a script for a film version of the series that inspired said spoof – ABC’s late 80’s action-drama “MacGyver” reports Risky Business.

New Line put the project into development back in March and now has selected Jason Richman (“Bad Company,” “Black Hawk Down”) to pen the film version which will likely stay a lot more straight-faced than “MacGruber”.

Raffaella De Laurentiis, Martha De Laurentiis and series creator Lee Zlotoff are producing. No word on any further talent being involved in the project.
