Be Still My Beating Nerd-Heart

Could it be true?? at Maker Faire 2008, MacGyver creator (and real life inspiration) Lee David Zlotoff announced he has a big budget MacGyver movie in the planning stages. “Talk to the hand, Iron Man!” We’re talkin’ real superhero here. This is the man who launched a generation of pocket knife and duct tape inspired innovation. This is the show that for 7 years got nerds everywhere to watch the opening theme of Monday night football. (MacGyver was on at 8pm Mondays on ABC, just before football.)

My only hope is that they get Richard Dean Anderson to reprise the role. He’s only in his late 50s. And if Harrison Ford can still do Indiana Jones at twice Calista Flockhart’s age, then Col. Gen. Jack O’Neill can hang up his P-90 long enough to be Angus MacGyver once again.
