New MacGyver Movie in the works?!

by isaac.johnson / May 4, 2008 4:55 AM PDT

Lee David Zlotoff, the real life inspiration for MacGyver, announced at Maker Faire today that a big budget MacGyver movie is in the works. According to the post on Gizmodo, Zlotoff somehow ended up with the movie rights years ago, which is very uncommon.

and while its titled as such, i doubt this is the trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rh173w-gnHE). Also, i did a quick check of snopes first (http://search.atomz.com/search/?sp-q=macgyver&getit=Go&sp-a=00062d45-sp00000000&sp-advanced=1&sp-p=all&sp-w-control=1&sp-w=alike&sp-date-range=-1&sp-x=any&sp-c=100&sp-m=1&sp-s=0)

Actor to portray iconic role

Even though Harrison Ford (66) pulled off the last Indy movie, and it would nice to see Richard Dean Anderson do the same thing with the franchise, I doubt he will be cast and a younger actor will most likely be chosen. If the powers that be are listening, my vote is for David Boreanaz.

As morbid as this sounds

I always wanted to be the villain that caught macGyver and shot him point blank in the head...in lieu of placing him in an unattended cell with worthless items that can be concocted into a thermal detonator.
