Lucas Till is one of the only two cast members who remain for CBS’ Macgyver after a shakeup this week.
CBS has recruited James Wan, who directed Furious 7, The Conjouring 2 and Saw, to direct the new pilot which will make its debut on the network in September. CSI alum George Eads will also remain on the show.
According to THR, James was originally set to direct the pilot in the first place, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. He’ll remain with the series as an executive producer after.
MacGyver, a re-imagining of the original series, centers on Angus “Mac” MacGyver (Till), who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives.

Here’s the official summary: Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into, Tripp (Till), a high school senior, builds a Monster Truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars.
After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend. Melding cutting edge visual effects and state-of-the-art CGI, Monster Trucks is an action filled adventure for the whole family that will keep you on the edge of your seat and ultimately touch your heart.
“I would love to come back,” Jennifer told the mag about possibly doing more movies. “You realize how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is. I don’t know. I shouldn’t be that honest.”
Lucas Till will play the title role in the new MacGyver CBS pilot!
The 25-year-old X-Men star will star in the reboot that was originally made famous by Richard Dean Anderson.
According to THR, the series will follow “20-something MacGyver (Till) as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.”
Be sure to catch Lucas in X: Men Apocalypse! He plays the role of Havok in the film, which will hit theaters on May 27.
The 24-year-old actor stars as Josh Harvest, a hardened New York City teen from a broken home – and quietly one of the country’s top dance club DJs and remixers – who is sentenced to counseling for a minor drug infraction, along with an extended stay with his estranged father, who lives in a small town in North Dakota.
He is slow to warm to his new environment, a town best-known for sending its young off to war, many of whom never return. But when Josh is asked to help out the last-place dance team as they vie for the state competition title, his rough exterior begins to soften.
As his relationships emerge with both the team’s captain, Mary (Payne), and his therapist, each of whom have lost someone special to war, it forces all three to begin to face and heal their pasts.
The plot details surrounding the live-action/computer-animated action film are being kept under wraps, but the movie also stars Jane Levy, Amy Ryan, Rob Lowe, Danny Glover, Barry Pepper, and Holt McCallany.
“EVERYONE! MAKE EVERY ATTEMPT YOU CAN TO SEE #TheInterview !!!!! WE CANNOT LET KIM JONG UN WIN! MAJOR THEATRES WILL NOT SHOW THE MOVIE NOW!!” Lucas recently tweeted.
