'MacGyver' Creator to Block 'MacGruber'


Will Forte, Val Kilmer


Feeling his rights were infringed, the man behind 1980 TV series 'MacGyver' along with his attorney intend to stop the launch of a spoof movie 'MacGruber'.

The man behind "MacGyver" is consulting lawyers in a bid to block the release of an upcoming spoof movie based on the 1980s TV series. A new film, titled "MacGruber" and starring Val Kilmer, is set to hit cinemas in April, but Lee Zlotoff, creator of the original show, alleges the parody breaches copyright laws as he retained the movie rights to his TV creation.

A lawyer for Zlotoff has fired off a series of cease-and-desist letters to executives at Relativity Media, the company behind the new comedy, according to Thresq.com.

Zlotoff's attorney, Paul Mayersohn, tells the website that his client is currently considering filing a lawsuit in a bid to block the film's release. He says, "We feel they're infringing our rights."
