"Saw" Director in Talks for "MacGyver" Movie

Posted: November 12th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Saw" Director in Talks for "MacGyver" MovieSubmit Comment
We've been hearing about a "MacGyver" movie for many years, but ended up with a spoof called "MacGruber." But now comes word that New Line Cinema has entered negotiations with James Wan, the director of "Saw" and "Insidious."

Based on the 1980s TV series starring Richard Dean Anderson, the show followed Angus MacGyver, an agent of the fictional government agency The Phoenix Foundation. MacGyver never carried a gun, using his wits and whatever was lying around to fight criminals.

Wan's movies are often profitable, but "Insidious" became the most profitable film of 2010. He's now working on "The Conjuring" for New Line, which recently tested the movie and was so pleased with the results that the studio gave it a summer release.

My favorite MacGyver episode was the one where he used vaseline, a Hustler magazine, and his hand to cause an explosion.

MacGruber was garbage, and I'm not so sure Wan is ready for an action-thriller diversion.

Not sure he can do action like it would need to be done for a film that won't have obligatory explosions and gunfights, a la Expendables.

More to the point, it would take someone with experience, nuance, finesse and a clever action-directing hand, none of which are exactly Wan's most developed skills.

I would suggest Brian de Palma, as he seemed to churn out a decent Mission Impossible film, even though the end result was hardly Die Hard.

god damn it mink, we've talked about this... Magruber was f*cking hilarious, i can quote that entire film. And yes, maybe it's because my unintelligent mind is attracted to stupidy but SO WHAT!

It's a funny film lol

Yeah, f*ck this guy. This whole article shows he's only being hired because he can make money, not a good movie.

If only there was some kind of virus that increased the intellingence of stupid people, that way, *ssholes like this guy wouldn't get rich.
