New Line is set to develop MacGyver, the science-like adventure TV series from the 1980's, into a feature film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Raffaella De Laurentiis, daughter of Dino De Laurentiis, is producing through her Raffaella Prods. along with Martha De Laurentiis and series creator Lee Zlotoff.
MacGyver ran from 1985-92 on ABC and starred Richard Dean Anderson, later of Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate SG-1 fame, as an incredibly resourceful secret agent for the Phoenix Foundation who frequently would escape from dangerous situations with ingenious and lightning-quick engineering trickery.
Two telefilms starring Anderson aired in the years after the show's cancellation. The character eventually achieved enough cultural penetration to become a reference for anyone attempting to jury-rig a solution out of household items.
No writer is attached and no production date has been set.
