CBS’ rebooted MacGyver pilot has its original director back.
James Wan will helm the second incarnation of the pilot, which was picked up to series in May for a debut this fall.
Wan will remain an executive producer on the drama, which is now a co-production between CBS Television Studios and Lionsgate Television. He was originally set to direct the pilot but dropped out due to scheduling. Wan was replaced by David Von Ancken, who helmed the pilot that is ultimately being scrapped but was good enough to score a series pickup. Wan will now in turn replace Von Ancken.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Macgyver Season 2…
