Wheels are Turning for the Knight Rider Movie. Get it?!? Never mind.

— Posted by John Campea

Well, I don’t see a lot of online write ups on this yet, but I did see it in the daily today, so maybe we’ll get the flutter going about this.

Apparently, there’s already some table discussion about the feature length film as a few of the characters and general ideas have been offered. David Hasselhoff, the piece of work he is, is going to reprise his role as Michael Knight, but won’t be front and center. His son, possibly played by Ben Affleck, with be the man with the access to KITT, who will be voiced by the same William Daniels.

As long as this movie is loyal to the series, that’ll be a nice way out of the gate. Unlike that soul tearingly horrible straight-to-TV movie: “Knight Rider 2010″ that aired roughly a decade or more ago. My unmentionable regions still feel stretched open from that putrid, wretched piece of garbage.

Hasselhoff is keen to give Knight Rider a “serious” turn, and not make it a nostalgic comedy like Starsky and Hutch. Which, I think I MIGHT agree with, I don’t know. — In order for something I thought was incredibly cool when I was 10 to STILL be incredibly cool when I’m near 30, it had better supply me with a case of non-consecutive bills and the Dallas cheerleaders. – To start.

    one thing i have noticed and i have been part of this too is what about the characters, whos who, i dont know what characters are goin to be in it but from what i hear and understand they have a good few people to choose just dont get ben affleck NOOOOO, paul walker would be good and even maybe that actress from xmen that played jean gray if patrica mcphearson doesnt come back, has to be some one that looks and play smart and of course is sexy oou ya. william daniel to be the voice of kitt thats a givin.if anyone has an idea of when they plan to do this movie please post it , its killing me not knowing lol…

    i agree with you jake make it a badass american ride. i say maybe something like the new vette with its sleek styling since the trans am isnt here anymore, but it has too be some sleek and fast and tough looking.

  • Sean

    So are they doing this movie or not?

  • Jake

    Cool to know there’s still interest for KR!

    For Kitt, i wouldnt go with a transam but maybe with the new 2006 Charger SRT or maybe a 2005-2006 Pontiac GTO ? , i dunno just hope its a big ass V-8 like it used to be lol :D

    knight rider the movie huh! cool i cant wait , ive been a fan forever. to one of the comments above i agree i hope they stay with the trans am model weather it being the old or new. the red one in 2000 was actually a dodge stealth just modified. i feel its a good idea they are keeping the same kitt voice, but ben no way paul walker would be much better for the role. The movie would be a great ending for those of us fans that are still alive. come on kitt….

    WHATS HAPPENING REGARDING KNIGHT RIDER THESE DAYS. IF THE BBC CAN DO IT DOCTOR WHO THEN WHY CAN’T IT BE DONE WITH KNIGHT RIDER.

    Hi, i really hope kitt will still be the trans am of the 1980ies. It s the perfect car for this. Think of the horrible red pontiac or what it was in Knight Rider 2000…
    Let the son of michael knight find the car in the laboratories of wilton knights ground, where karr was found by the two roudies in “trust doesn’t rust”…the problem is that i actually don’t know how the “knight rider series” ended. Was is scent of roses??? Anyway, but take Ashton Kutcher or Sean William Scott. Would be Perfect. Or take this guy from coyote ugly…so let him find the car, doing some exciting tuning on the turbo boost(please don’t forget the holy turbo boost!!!) and on the super persuit mode (but without the ugly break mode!)…and let your ideas role…knight rider can be a never ending story…and please just tune the theme a little bit like i made it for ya, you know… ;-) Greetz Dany
