'MacGyver' Will Be Rebooted on the Big Screen

8 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A funny thing happened on the way to a movie parody getting a sequel: the original inspiration will be rebooted. Let us explain. Debuting in September 1985, MacGyver became a modest success in its first season, despite being programmed on Sunday evening opposite Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, which itself was not the breakout hit many expected. While Amazing Stories wavered in quality as an anthology show from week to week, MacGyver developed a solid groove, led by Richard Dean Anderson in the leading role, and attracted an even more devoted following in its second season after a move to Monday evening. Anderson was an ideal actor to play an off-beat character, a scientist who served in the Vietnam War and survived to become a secret agent. He preferred using his...

It’s a pretty good time for fans of MacGyver. Last week CBS announced a pilot order for a new TV series from James Wan (Fast & Furious 7) and original executive producer Henry Winkler, and now Variety is reporting that Lionsgate is in development on a big screen reboot of the 80s action-adventure series.

During a conference call with analysts, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer made the announcement about the movie, revealing that original series creator Lee David Zlotoff will be producing alongside Neal Moritz (Fast and Furious).

MacGyver starred Richard Dean Anderson in the title role of secret agent Angus MacGyver and ran for seven seasons between 1985 and 1992, with two TV movies following in 1994.

A MacGyver Movie Is In Development In Addition To The Already-Announced TV Reboot

5 February 2016 2:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following last October’s announcement that the classic 1980’s action series MacGyver would be returning to CBS, news out of a Lionsgate analysts meeting this morning has revealed that the company is simultaneously planning a big-budget movie reboot of the show as well.

Hollywood has been trying to jumpstart the MacGyver brand for years.

It's apparently been missed a great deal, because not only is CBS bringing forth a pilot to try to launch a... Read More »

'MacGyver' Movie Is Happening at Lionsgate

5 February 2016 9:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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, »

5 February 2016 7:45 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

MacGyver is coming back, folks. And you won't be able to avoid him. According to Variety, not only is CBS preparing to relaunch a MacGyver TV series, but now Lionsgate is prepping a movie.

While the CBS series has been a known entity for some time, with a pilot officially being ordered by the network- which would cover MacGyver's early years- the news of a major motion picture is fresh off the presses. According to Lionsgate CEO Jon Leitheimer, original series creator Lee David Zlotoff and Fast & Furious producer Neal Moritz will be producing a MacGyver film for the studio.

The original series, which ran from 1985 to 1992, followed a very crafty agent for the Phoenix Foundation who's able to create innovative solutions using whatever he can find in order to get himself and others out of jams. The series developed a strong following, and the character- and his abilities- »

'MacGyver' Movie Reboot And New TV Series Pilot On The Way

5 February 2016 7:31 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You can't keep old TV series from being warmed over like last week's roast quite like Hollywood can, and once again, they are trying to make "MacGyver" happen. Twice over. Earlier this week, Deadline reported that CBS ordered a pilot for a new "MacGyver" TV show, one that would focus on the exploits of young, 20-something Angus MacGyver, whose knack for using paper clips, seaweed, and pocket lint to get out of life threatening situations, lands him a sweet gig with a clandestine organization. No word yet on who will fill that title role, but the thing is, that's not all. Variety reveals that Lionsgate is now mounting a "MacGyver" movie reboot. Series creator Lee David Zlotoff and "The Fast & The Furious" mastermind Neal Moritz are working on the project, though that's about all the details for now. »

There’s a MacGyver Reboot in Development at CBS: Alert the Pattys and Selmas in Your Life!

3 February 2016 7:42 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Look, no one wants to identify themselves as a Patty or a Selma, but that doesn’t mean the Patty- or Selma-esque people you know wouldn’t appreciate learning that CBS has ordered a pilot for a MacGyver reboot. The incredibly resourceful secret agent beloved by The Simpsons’ Bouvier sisters will return in one of two dramas out of CBS TV Studio. The new MacGyver, which knocks a decade off the protagonist’s age and focuses on how he acquired his fantastic skills, is the brainchild of Furious 7 director James Wan, executive producer Henry Winkler, and writer Paul Downs Colaizzo. CBS has also ordered a pilot for Bull, a procedural drama based on Dr. Phil’s early career in trial consulting, which means Patty and Selma are going to have a pretty full DVR in 2016. (You just know they love Dr. Phil. You just know.) »

"MacGyver" Reboot Gets A Pilot Order

3 February 2016 1:47 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

CBS has handed out a formal pilot order for "MacGyver," its reimagining of the classic 1980s TV series of the same name which its own CBS Television Studios will produce.

In this take, MacGyver will be a twenty-something man recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent future disasters from happening.

Paul Downs Colaizzo penned the new take with "Furious 7" and "Saw" helmer James Wan attached to direct the pilot and executive produce. Henry Winkler, who also produced the original series, will also executive produce along with Michael Clear.

The project, along with the "Nancy Drew" reboot, are said to be a high priority for the network. The original series ran for 139 episodes from 1985 to 1992 and starred Richard Dean Anderson as MacGyver. The WB shot a pilot for a "Young MacGyver" back in 2003 with "Supernatural" star Jared Padalecki in the role. »

Classic 1980s action series MacGyver is in line for a reboot, as CBS orders a revamped pilot episode…

MacGyver is set for a reboot. CBS has put into production a pilot episode, which seeks to launch a revamped series inspired by the 1985-1992 ABC show that starred Richard Dean Anderson as secret agent Angus MacGyver.

As you may have guessed, this will be a ‘contemporary update’, not a period piece. It’ll follow ‘a twenty-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.’

Essentially, then, it’ll be an origin story for MacGyver. Whomever CBS will cast in the title role remains to be seen, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we hear any rumblings. We do know, however, that James Wan will direct the »
