At the request of no one but possibly a small club that meets at comic conventions, A Knight Rider movie is in the works:
The talking car K.I.T.T. is heading to the big screen in the Weinstein Co.'s adaptation of Glen A. Larson's hit 1980s TV series "Knight Rider." Larson will write and exec produce the feature, which he anticipates will begin production next year.
Let's get this out there right now: the premise of a man fighting crime with the assistance of a talking car is the best concept we're ever going to invent for a movie. The question has never been if we make a Knight Rider movie, or why would anyone possibly make a Knight Rider movie, but when should we make it. Are we really ready for it? Is our talking car technology really at the point it needs to be to make this believable? We don't want to dilute Cristal, if you know what I'm saying. We need to be at a point where we can shake it up, pour it on America's tits, and say, "There's your talking car, bitch."
It seems unlikely that David Hasselhoff will reprise his role as Michael Knight, the show's lead, but it remains very likely he will continue making music only Germany can stand.
