Movie News: MacGyver

New Line has begun development on a MacGyver feature film. Series creator Lee Zlotoff, Rafaella De Laurentiis (daughter of Dino De Laurentiis) and Martha De Laurentiis (wife of Dino De Laurentiis) will produce. The original MacGyver TV series aired from 1985-92 and starred Richard Dean Anderson as the title character, who used his science and engineering knowledge to ingeniously cobble together everyday objects to escape from dangerous situations. Anderson, who is also known for his eight-year leading role on Stargate SG-1, has revisited the MacGyver character in recent years in MasterCard commercials and the recent "MacGruber" sketches on Saturday Night Live.
