In addition to the recently announced reboot TV series in the works at CBS, Variety has learned that Lionsgate is currently developing a feature film version of the ’80s action-series “MacGyver.”

The update came via Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer’s earnings call with analysts, wherein he revealed that the film will be produced by series creator Lee David Zlotoff as well as “Fast and Furious” franchise producer Neal Moritz. No other details are currently known about the project.

Starring Richard Dean Anderson as a secret agent with a knack for turning household objects into complex gadgets, “MacGyver” aired from 1985 to 1992 on ABC. The TV reboot from CBS will reimagine the show’s lead as “a twentysomething” that “gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.” The CBS reboot also has a “Fast and Furious” connection; the pilot episode will be directed by “Furious Seven” director James Wan.

    MacGyver movie will probably end up being a slapstick comedy starring Jonah Hill.

    Okay, that’s odd. a TV revival and a film reboot in concurrent development? Looks like non-superhero shows in general are coming up with their own multiple-universe theory.

    Probably have Seth Rogen or Dane Cook ruin it. It’s already too little too late.

    Oh god! Just like he [Rogen] did with ‘The Green Hornet’! Such potential there, if in hands more competent than his!
