The producers of a reboot of classic '80s show MacGyver say they've found their new star.

Variety reported X-Men star Lucas Till will play the part of the show's hero, a DIY expert who thwarts bad guys using know-how and everyday equipment.

The reboot is described as a "reimagining" of the show which turned Richard Dean Anderson into a cult figure.

Till plays Havok in the next X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse.
