The role that made Richard Dean Anderson a star is getting rebooted.
A big-screen version of MacGyver is in the works from Saw director James Wan.
Wan broke the news via Twitter, saying “People are surprised?? You guys never saw shades of MacG in Jigsaw??”
Jason Richman, of Bangkok Dangerous, has already written the script for the “MacGyver” movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and edits have been done by Brian and Mark Gunn. The website added that Raffaella and Martha De Laurentiis, relatives of late producer Dino De Laurentiis, are producing, along with series creator Lee Zlotoff.
No release date has been set for film.
