It is coming to the big screen, “MacGyver” fans! New Line cinema has just greenlighted, the classic TV series that once starred, Richard Dean Anderson, as the famous fictional character, “MacGyver”. Raffaella De Laurentiis is producer, and her father, Dino De Laurentiis, is executive producing. No director and no script writer has been hired yet for the pic.
There is no talks on whether or not Richard Dean Anderson would reprise his famous character for the big screen version of, “Macguyver” although, he once said he would love to play the character again for the movie version.
The Hollywood Reporter Reports:
I’ve said it once before and will say it again. No Richard Dean Anderson as MacGyver, I will not see it. They need to bring Richard back. If he’s not back, the film will fail in the box office, big time. Who will want to see Will Forte take over the role if Richard isn’t down?
