MACGYVER Movie in Development at Lionsgate
I'm surprised it's taken Hollywood this long to get around to making a movie based on the classic TV series MacGyver. While CBS and James Wan are planning a remake of the show, Lionsgate is moving forward with plans to make a movie.
The news comes from Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, and he also reveals that the movie will be produced by series creator Lee David Zlotoff and Neal Moritz, who is the producer of the Fast and Furious franchise.
MacGyver aired on ABC from 1985 to 1992 and it starred Richard Dean Anderson as secret agent Angus MacGyver. He worked for the Department of External Services and one of his main talents was his ability to solve complex problems in intense situations with ordinary items that he randomly had access to.
A MacGyver movie could be a lot of fun, especially if it gets a solid team of talent on board to develop it. There's no other information on project, other than what we have here, but we'll keep you updated on any new developments.
