The ‘80s classic MacGyver is the latest TV series to be eyed for a reboot scenario, as CBS has ordered a pilot for an updated series about the super-resourceful secret agent.

Deadline reports that the new MacGyver will be a prequel, focusing on how young Angus MacGyver developed his super-smooth skills. The projected is being helmed by Furious 7 director James Wan.

MacGyver originally aired on ABC from 1985 to 1992. A spin-off was developed as a pilot in 2003, but never came to fruition.
