MacGyver

Yes, the SNL sketch-turned feature-length movie MacGruber was a spoof on the popular ’80s and ’90s TV series, MacGyver. And though it’s not doing the best at the box office right now, consensus seems to be that it is quite the hilarious movie. But did you know that an actual MacGyver movie was being developed as well?

New Line Cinema has hired Jason Richman to begin work on a script for the movie adaptation of the television series. The series, which starred Richard Dean Anderson, ran from 1985 to 1992 on ABC and followed a brilliant secret agent who was able to infiltrate and escape any place and situation, no matter how difficult or how little resources that he had available to him. Anderson also appeared in a couple of TV movies and in some of the MacGruber sketches.

Richman hasn’t done a ton yet, but among his writing credits are titles like Bad Company, Swing Vote, and Bangkok Dangerous. He also helped out on Rush Hour 3 and contributed to one of the drafts of Beverly Hills Cop 4, which has been constricted to development hell for a while now.

Back when the movie was announced in March of 2009, New Line’s Richard Brener was stated “We think we’re a stick of chewing gum, a paper clip and an A-list writer away from a global franchise.” The question is, is Richman that A-list scribe?

No word yet on when we might see the movie, or whether Richard Dean Anderson is actually starring or if a brand new actor will be brought in for a complete reboot.
