MacGyver Being Revived As A Feature Film

New Line Entertainment is throwing its creative department into a spin using twine, bubble gum and a pencil to bring the MacGyver into development as a feature film.

Raffaella De Laurentiis, daughter of Dino De Laurentiis, is producing the feature length film along with Martha De Laurentiis and series creator Lee Zlotoff.

“MacGyver” was a science-oriented adventure series which ran from 1985 to 1992 on ABC. Richard Dean Anderson, later of “Stargate: Atlantis” and “SG-1”, starred as an incredibly resourceful secret agent for the Phoenix Foundation who frequently would escape from dangerous situations with ingenious and lightning-quick engineering trickery.
