That’s right people the man who could diffuse a nuclear bomb with a swizz army knife, will be back this time via the big screen. There seems to be some rumblings by MacGyver creator (and real life inspiration) Lee David Zlotoff that he has gotten the dough to produce the on screen version. Matt Damon would be perfect for this but the Bourne Identity series may run to close to the storyline of the MacGyver series. We’ll see if it really happens!! Read below:

Zlotoff mentioned he somehow ended up with the movie rights years ago (extremely uncommon), giving him full control over the film. While few specifics were mentioned, and no formal announcement has been made, its extremely promising that the man with the power to make the film is getting the ball rolling. The question is…do you bring back Richard Dean Anderson as old MacGyver, or bring in a younger, Christian Bale-type to reprise the role of makeshift gadget god?
