MacGyver Trail of Doomsday
There is planning for a new feature film, possible production in 2013. Although Anderson has said he'd be interesting in reprising his role as MacGyver there is no word yet who will be playing the role. If they really want to screw the movie up just pick someone other than Anderson, IMO. There will also be a series of short films with Anderson reprising his role as MacGyver this September 2012, created My Mercedes-Benz, available on their website for the MPV Citan.
For about six years MacGyver was on then Monday Night Football, a staple of television in the late 80's early 90's in the US. This show went into syndication almost everywhere and should be familiar to people from many countries. All seven seasons are available on DVD and they're nice pieces of work. Made the transition well. I borrowed a friends DVD collection and I give it a seal of approval.
A little trivia. Anderson did a lot of his own stunts, due to serious multiple injuries not many by the end of the series. I notice how MacGyver has an aversion to guns in the show. In Stargate SG-1 jack Oneill's son was killed while playing with his service pistol. This was also part of the story arc in the feature film Stargate and cannot be directly attributed to any influence from Richard Anderson. Just a coincidence.
Also Don S Davis was the stunt double for Dana Elcar in MacGyver, Davis went on to play General Hammond in Stargate SG-1.
