'MacGyver' Movie Is Happening at Lionsgate

'MacGyver' Movie Is Happening at Lionsgate
Back in October, we reported that Furious 7 director James Wan came aboard to produce a TV remake of the hit 1980s TV series MacGyver for CBS, along with Henry Winkler. While development continues on that series, Variety reports that Lionsgate is now moving forward with their own movie remake of MacGyver. Original series creator Lee David Zlotoff is set to produce alongside Neal H. Moritz, but no other details were revealed.

Back in 2012, James Wan was actually attached to direct a MacGyver movie remake, when New Line Cinema held the rights to the series. The filmmaker eventually moved on to direct Furious 7, and New Line Cinema lost the rights. It still isn't known if he will direct the pilot episode of the MacGyver TV remake, but that project is said to focus on a much younger version of the title character.

The plot will follow a "twentysomething" Angus MacGyver,

New Line Cinema has hired "The Conjuring" scribes Chad and Carey Hayes to pen a third and fourth film in its 3D "Journey" franchise.

Starting in 2008 with "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D," the film scored a sequel in 2012 with "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" which saw Dwayne Johnson take over for Brendan Fraser as the adult male lead. Johnson is expected to return for both the new sequels.
