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."

Didn’t realize it until I grew older but that show was way too anti-gun for me.
Great!! I love McGyver!
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...
Awesome! Nobody does the mullet better than Richard Dean Anderson.
if an 87 year old harrison ford can do a new indiana jones, why can’t richard dean anderson reprise his role as Mac?
who will play McGuyver?
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!!!
Too bad I can’t find a good picture of Patti and Selma.
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.
hmmm..McGyver the Movie..and I have no money to buy a ticket..no problem..I have string, a towel rack and cylindrical force..should muster me a ticket..or I could just shoot someone with a gun to get one..;)
Ahhh, thank you, thank you. I’ll go have some ravioli now!
Giada still looks hot even though she is thoroughly disgusted with that sorbet!
