According to THR, Lionsgate are planning a MacGyver movie reboot while CBS develop their own TV pilot for the cult classic.
21 Jump Street’s Neal Moritz and original MacGyver creator Lee David Zlotoff will produce the movie reboot.
The film is part of a development partnership with CBS with their TV pilot adaptation to come from scribe Paul Downs Colaizzo, with Henry Winkler executive producing.
MacGyver is described as a reimagining of the Richard Dean Anderson-starring television series of the same name, following a 20-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organisation where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.
The original MacGyver series ran for seven seasons between 1985-1992 and we can now expect to see it rebooted on our screens in the near future.
