New Line Calls in Jason Richman to Write MACGYVER

     May 20, 2010

New Line Cinema has hired screenwriter Jason Richman (Bangkok Dangerous) to pen an adaptation of the popular 80s TV show, MacGyver.  The series is best known for Richard Dean Anderson as the titular character who could bring together random everyday objects and save the day.  The project was announced in March of last year, but according to Risky Business, Relativity Media followed by quickly putting together the parody MacGruber (based on the SNL sketch) and got a cast in front of cameras last summer and fall.  That film opens tomorrow and it’s pretty good. I imagine that Richman’s script for MacGyver will have significantly less throat-ripping.
