New Line is using twine, bubble gum and a pencil to throw "MacGyver" into development as a feature film. "MacGyver" was a science-oriented adventure series that ran from 1985-92 on ABC. Richard Dean Anderson, later of "Stargate: Atlantis" and "SG-1" fame, starred as an incredibly resourceful secret agent for the Phoenix Foundation who frequently would escape from dangerous situations with ingenious and lightning-quick engineering trickery. The character eventually achieved enough cultural penetration to become a reference for anyone attempting to jury-rig a solution out of household items.
