This week CBS introduced plans for a MacGyver machine TV show, featuring a younger version of the character portrayed by Richard Dean Anderson within the classic series. Adam Wan — who was previously attached to direct a MacGyver video — will direct this pilot, but just in case that doesn’t work out, Lionsgate offers announced that they’actu (still) developing a MacGyver film.
A MacGyver film has been in a few stage of development for several years now, having Wan attached to direct in one point not so long ago. For every Variety, Lionsgate’s recent investors call stated that the studio is developing a film using the classic series — which is really only news simply because CBS announced an airplane pilot order for their reboot your computer series this week.
21 Hop Street producer Neal Moritz and unique series creator Shelter David Zlotoff will make the MacGyver feature film, but…that’azines about all that’ersus happening with the movie version as of now. Lionsgate offers yet to secure a manager or an official set of scripts, but with CBS moving ahead with their completely new TV reboot, the actual film studio ought to cobble something together as soon as possible. Maybe they can have a tip from MacGyver themselves and see what they may make out of whatever movie leftovers are just laying around in.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on that MacGruber sequel.
