It's Official! Get Ready for "MacGyver" the Movie!

It's official! New Line is developing a feature film based on "MacGyver."

The daughter of Dino De Laurentiis, Raffaella De Laurentiis, is producing the film through her Raffaella Prods. And Mister Laurentiis is taking the role of executive producer.

According to a recent poll, "MacGyver" beat "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "24" as America's favorite TV action hero!

So can "MacGyver" be a global franchise? New Line's Richard Brener says, "We think we're a stick of chewing gum, a paper clip and an A-list writer away from a global franchise."

KEYWORDS: genx; hollywood; macgyver; outofideas; remake; rerun
I wonder if Shia Labouf will play the son of MacGyver's long lost girlfriend. But the real question is if the Laurentiis family has time to do this, what's the holdup on Judge Dredd 2.

Didn’t realize it until I grew older but that show was way too anti-gun for me.

I think I’ll wait on “MacGruber: The Movie.”

That’s true, but it’s anti-communist + they at least made his anti-gun sentiments (the reason why) seem reasonable rather than just some liberal aversion toward them ( I thinkin the history of the show at one time Mac did use guns, but that is in the past before the beginning of the show).

Loved the re-runs. My Dad and uncles watched it a lot. But I agree..too anti-gun. Plus the last 2 seasons was too environmentally preachy as well. I’m still interested though...

Kind of late for a MacGuyver movie...How about MacGruber??? However if the Laurentis family is involved will Giada be in the Movie??? I’d go see that in a second!!!

Richard Dean Anderson was awesome. So was the fat bald dude who was his boss/friend or whatever.

I even watched the MacGyver TV movies which were utter crap but at the same time good.

Oh ya and MacGyver also had a nemesis that he would kill but would also come back to life. That dude was awesome too.

Goodbye, MacGyver. Rest in pieces!

"Okay, here's the plan. You lock me in the trunk of a car and park it under the pier at low tide. All I need are these everyday objects: a nail file, a Farmers' Almanac, a gun with no bullets, some bullets and three of my MacGyver writers."

My boys (7&14) love that show ... we're into season 4 from Netflix. I loved it in my day too, but I just had a crush on Richard Dean Anderson back then.

He loved using weapons of all kinds on Stargate: SG-1. RDA is an environmentalist liberal in real life, but I’m a fan of the General.

My only question... Will the movie version of MacGyver still drive the Jeep YJ? I had one just like it. I miss my YJ. *sniff*

Richard Dean Anderson appeared on SNL. He looked bloated and old. He looked fine a few years ago on that stargate show.
