The fumes of a Knight Rider reboot have been in the air lately. Earlier this month David Hasselhoff revealed he pitched an idea to James Gunn for a reboot of the original NBC series. The show, which ran from 1982 to 1986, starred Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a crime fighter assisted by his artificially intelligent car KIIT. NBC attempted to reboot the series back in 2008 with Val Kilmer voicing the car, an effort that only lasted a season. And last year Justin Lin was in talks to bring Knight Rider back as a digital series with Machinima. But will a Knight Rider reboot actually happen? A new rumor suggests a revival might be on the way, but in feature-length form.
We’ve already had one Knight Rider reboot stall out (it was a Transformer voiced by Val Kilmer, guys), but is KITT making another comeback? Looks like NBC might be getting a little Fast & Furious with a new digital series produced by Justin Lin, bringing Knight Rider back to the road.
'Knight Rider' was a popular TV show (albeit briefly) that ran from 1982 through 1986. In it, David Hasselhoff's crime-fighting Michael Knight was partnered with a talking car named KITT. And now it's ready to become a movie.
