Nope, I’m not kidding at all. MacGyver is going to hit the big screen with his Swiss army knife, a paper clip, some sand paper, dish soap, and an apple. At least I’m pretty sure he’ll have all that. That’s what I’d have.
Today at Maker Faire 2008, MacGyver creator (and real life inspiration) Lee David Zlotoff announced he has a big budget MacGyver movie in the planning stages.
Zlotoff mentioned he somehow ended up with the movie rights years ago (extremely uncommon), giving him full control over the film. While few specifics were mentioned, and no formal announcement has been made, its extremely promising that the man with the power to make the film is getting the ball rolling.
So would you bring back old MacGyver or cast a new person? I’d like to hear from you.
