Get your paper clips and elastic bands out because there is a MacGyver movie in the works! According to the Dark Horizons website, MacGyver creator Lee David Zlotoff announced over the weekend at Maker Faire 2008 that a big budget movie based on the series was in the planning stages.
Sadly, he revealed no specifics about the movie other than he got the movie rights a few years ago and has total control over the movie.
It is unknown if Richard Dean Anderson will star in the movie yet. Since prequels and movies featuring young versions of action heroes are popular these days, it wouldn't be surprising if they decide to go that way with the MacGyver movie as well. However, I would prefer seeing Anderson in the lead role. He did show us about two years ago that he still had the goods to portray the character in that Mastercard commercial titled "MacGyver Returns - A Narrow Escape" (see video below).
In preparation for the potential movie, we suggest you buy the official MacGyver paper clip.
