Hey guys, Jana here,

I’m trying to keep my personal thoughts to myself on the Hollywood re-make machine that anything successful seems to go into, but these announcements that keep coming make that a harder job than my will-power can topple, so here it is. One of the latest  re-makes is not going to be making a big-screen debut, but a small-screen opening that CBS is hoping will be just as big a hit the second time around as it was the first time, I’m talking about the original Mr. Fix-It and Granddaddy of the life hack, ‘Macgyver‘.

 

The new series takes our favorite ingenious agent armed to the gills with more scientific know-how than Nikola Tesla and backs up the time-line a bit. The plan is to feature a 10-years younger Angus MacGyver as he’s recruited into a clandestine organization. CBS will give us some insight how the agent acquired some of his famous skill sets.

R. Scott Gemmill will write and executive produce with original series producer Henry Winkler, Michael Clear and new series director James Wan. Wan is the director of ‘Furious 7‘, ‘Insidious:Chapter 2‘ and the latest announced ‘Aquaman‘. Wan’s partner at Atomic Monster, Michael Clear will produce also. Wan has long been interested in the property and  developed a feature for MacGyver focusing on the college years of the agent.

MacGyver joins a growing list of action-adventure TV series looking at reboots including ‘A-Team‘, ‘Hart To Hart‘ and ‘Xena‘.

Movie Quotes

Fabienne:
I was looking at myself in the mirror.
Butch Coolidge:
Uh-huh?
Fabienne:
I wish I had a pot.
Butch Coolidge:
You were lookin' in the mirror and you wish you had some pot?
Fabienne:
A pot. A pot belly. Pot bellies are sexy.
Butch Coolidge:
Well you should be happy, 'cause you do.
Fabienne:
Shut up, Fatso! I don't have a pot! I have a bit of a tummy, like Madonna when she did "Lucky Star," it's not the same thing.
Butch Coolidge:
I didn't realize there was a difference between a tummy and a pot belly.
Fabienne:
The difference is huge.
Butch Coolidge:
You want me to have a pot?
Fabienne:
No. Pot bellies make a man look either oafish, or like a gorilla. But on a woman, a pot belly is very sexy. The rest of you is normal. Normal face, normal legs, normal hips, normal ass, but with a big, perfectly round pot belly. If I had one, I'd wear a tee-shirt two sizes too small to accentuate it.
Butch Coolidge:
You think guys would find that attractive?
Fabienne:
I don't give a damn what men find attractive. It's unfortunate what we find pleasing to the touch and pleasing to the eye is seldom the same.
