MacGyver Leaps to Theaters

After the recent Will Forte-led “MacGruber” SNL skits, this seemed inevitable: The popular MacGyver TV series, which ran from 1985 to 1992 and starred TV cult hero Richard Dean Anderson, is set for a revival on the big screen. Although no script is written, New Line is backing the project, with Dino de Laurentiis set to executive produce through his daughter’s production company. “We think we're a stick of chewing gum, a paper clip and an A-list writer away from a global franchise," said one New Line rep. Patty and Selma Bouvier are surely pleased.
