MacGyver the Movie: Not a Joke

It's bad enough that everything that was ever exposed on film between 1980 and 1995 is now getting thrown into the remake mill. Now old TV series (some of which haven't been off the air long enough for us to miss) are getting turned into movies. The latest example of this is MacGyver, that hit show starring Richard Dean Anderson and his blonde mullet.

New Line is behind this questionable venture, and producer Dino De Laurentiis and his benighted daughter Raffaella (they're big on doubling up on consonants and vowels) will be putting this strange project together. As of right now, it doesn't appear Anderson has anything to do with the film. Which means that he's even smarter than his show led us to believe.

In other ill-conceived remake/reimagining news, The Bodyguard, that romantic jamboree starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner from '92, is also possibly going to get remade. The twisted irony is that Rihanna might play the role played by Houston, thus solidifying her reputation as the next Whitney. She might want to take a real good look at her career, then do a quick little compare and contrast with Whitney's.

Or not.
