Also, to update you guys on something I've learned about DV. I decided to test out my new JVC MiniDV camera on a car driving by. And you know what? It didn't do the jittery stuff that the professional DV cameras do when it comes to rapid motion (like it did in "28 Days Later"). So, not all DV cameras do that, which brings me back to thinking that DV could be used for a KR film.
However, I have also had another thought about a KR movie. Instead of it being independant, it should be on a low budget. The other night, I was watching a documentary about the making of the "Alien" films. Surprising enough to me, the first one was made with an $8 Million Dollar budget. Now, we all know how "Alien" looked. And it has done good (and still does good) as a feature, even with as low a budget (though nowadays, the amount of $8 Million differs now from what it was back in the 1970s). If a "Knight Rider" movie was done on a low budget as "Alien" was, it would ensure not only good action, but ensures that there is a good solid story to back it up. Sure, I know you guys think that "Knight Rider" should have massive explosions and a lot of car crashes and stuff like that. But I think that such unnecessary and excessive stuff should not be used. I mean, sure, two car crashes and three explosions are okay for a "Knight Rider" film. However, over 200 car crashes and 500 explosions isn't a "Knight Rider" film, it's another action film with a minimal plot and very little character development (which is probably filmed and cut out of the film during editing and have all the action sequences in their place for the purpose of eye candy because they feel that the audience doesn't really care to think).
Also, I'm worried about what would happen if the production got a director who had no idea what they were doing. I mean, I think that the director should be someone who knows what they are doing if they had the film, someone who is actually willing to do the research and watch all the episodes and all that. I don't want to see this film end up by a director who is only thinking about money. I mean, I would be for the Wachowski Brothers being the directors of a "Knight Rider" film. However, "The Matrix Reloaded" has had me questioning their directing and writing skills. I mean, "Bound" and "The Matrix" were good films because you got it on the first time watching it. But I had to watch "The Matrix Reloaded" twice in order to get an idea on weither it was good or not. I think David Fincher could do a good action film if he were given the chance (and I don't think we should hold him responsible for the failure of "Alien 3", seeing that what killed the film was that so many people, including the producers and the studio, wanted the film to go several different ways, which affected what he had in mind for it), him using the various techiques he's perfected throughout his films, like the stuff we saw in "Fight Club" for example. I just hope its not some director who THINKS that "Knight Rider" should be a certain way (which would most likely be just an action film), not the way the original was (which was a story about a man trying to make a difference and an incredible car that could help him).
Of course, these are just thoughts, I could be wrong about all of them.
