James Wan (upcoming The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw) is in talks to direct the MacGyver movie at New Line Cinema, reports Variety.

The film will be based on the 1980s TV series. 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.

Jason Richman wrote the script, which has received additional work by Brian and Mark Gunn.

Martha and Raffaella De Laurentiis are producing through their Dino De Laurentiis Company along with Lee David Zlotoff.
