Screenwriter Hired for MacGyver Movie


On the day that MacGruber hits theaters, news comes our way that Jason Richman has been hired to write the script for New Line/Warner Bros.’ MacGyver movie.

“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.

Richman has worked on films including Black Hawk Down, Rush Hour 3, Bad Company and the proposed Beverly Hills Cop 4.

Raffaella De Laurentiis is producing through her Raffaella Productions along with Martha De Laurentiis and series creator Lee Zlotoff. Dino De Laurentiis is executive producing.
