Harry was asked about the Knight Rider movie and he provides details not mentioned elsewhere yet. Although, with him your never too sure what he has heard credibly. That whole Hasselhoff bit.. ut oh.. If true, I guess this means that they may be starting from the begining.

KNIGHT RIDER movie... coming...

Hey folks, Harry here... Yup, this is completely true. In addition to all of this... The film is set to be distributed by Sony, Hasselhoff will have a role in the film, but not Michael Knight. William Daniels will be the voice of KITT and though dead, Edward Mulhare will apparently be back, but as a hologram... (Don't ask me, I don't know) The script has had Glen Larson, Paul Lovett and David Elliot working on it. I'm curious how this will end up doing, because frankly... Universal has a SPY HUNTER film with The Rock set up, and that car is apparently going to be tranforming into all sorts of super cool things and doing badass stunt after badass stunt... BUT... KNIGHT RIDER does have that cool title music, though personally, AIR WOLF owned KNIGHT RIDER's ass!

Um, I hate to do this to this bit of KR news, but it is the same rumors that have been flying around since last year when we first got the announcement. It's the same rumors that were pulled off of this board as discussions.

Of course I think that they are rumors, and I'll add them to the pile. I don't remember the Devon bit be mentioned, but regardless nothing here still that credible. Guess I posted too much out of excitement, without realizing.

David mentioned the hologram thing himself. Which would have no purpose whatsoever if David isn't Michael anyway.

Oh right, now I remember. Sadly, my memory isn't my best feature. Yea, I agree, if no Hasselhoff as Michael, why even bring back Devon if there is nothing else that connects it to the orignal series but the names.

Hopefully this will stay in the rumors catagory where it belongs.

Sean William Scott as the new Michael Knight type character is also a good idea, the rest of them have no clue what they are talking about, especially when saying Spy Hunter was so much better then Knight Rider, when its a known fact Knight Rider was the bases for Spy Hunter. :roll:

To be honest, according to Dark Horizons a while back, they had a little bit of news for "Knight Rider", it saying that it was looking for writers for the project. (And this was like Monday of this week).

since tis aimed at a more youthful audience ittl have public service messages in it.
MK:gee, that was swell kitt
KITT:you know whats even more swell michael? when you dont use drugs.
(funded by big tobacco)
KITT:a good alternative to drugs is cigarettes, which by the way are completely non addictive
MK:really?
KITT:yes, try one
MK:damn, ,these are magnificint
KITT:oh and michael, have you lookeed at your hands lately?
(looks at hands)
KITT:ha ha, i got you michael, before you entered i secreted oil through my steering wheel
MK:oh kitt, its like were in an action comedy movie or something.
