maryann johanson, ruining movies since 1997

question of the day: What can we hope for from the just-greenlit ‘MacGyver’ movie?

The hypothetical MacGyver movie we fantasized about four months ago here is actually coming to fruition, according to CBC News:

A big screen version of the long-running TV series MacGyver is in the works by New Line studio.

“We think we’re a stick of chewing gum, a paper clip and an A-list writer away from a global franchise,” Richard Brener of New Line told The Hollywood Reporter.

Raffaella De Laurentiis and her father, Dino, will produce the film.

No cast or director is attached to the project yet.

Now, De Laurentiis’s credits as a producer are not inspiring: there’s an awful lot of crap there. I fear that a MacGyver movie she produces is gonna look like a made-for-Sci Fi — excuse me, Syfy — Saturday night movie.

What do you think? What can we hope for from the just-greenlit MacGyver movie?
