MacGyver to get the big screen makeover

With Hollywood seemingly having decided that new ideas are bad and nostalgic remakes of TV programmes are good, it comes as little surprise that 80s classic MacGyver is set to be remade for the big screen.

Equipped with nothing more than a Swiss Army knife and a Shoreditch mullet, our intrepid hero transformed Saturday evening's with his ingenuity, turning pens into rocket launchers, maps into sledges, peas into beans in a display of technical prowess that would've put even Q and MI6's top boffins to shame.

Sadly it's unlikely that we are going to see original star Richard Dean Anderson appear, but hopefully he will pass on the mantle of the barnet to a worthy successor, and more importantly they'll keep the same theme tune.
