movies 'Knight Rider' is coming to the big screen

23 posts in this topic

Michael Knight and KITT may soon be bringing their adventures to the big screen. The LA Times reports that The Weinstein Company has hired Brad Copeland to draft a feature film take on the popular automotive action franchise. 

 

The original "Knight Rider" series aired for four seasons on NBC beginning in 1982. It starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a crimefighter aided by the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a highly advanced vehicle with its own A.I. personality.

 

"Knight Rider" was spun off into the short-lived "Code of Vengeance" in 1985 and, in addition to three different telefilms, received two sequel/reboot series, "Team Knight Rider" and just plain "Knight Rider" in 1997 and 2008, respectively. 

 

In addition to work on television shows like "Arrested Development" and "The Inbetweeners", Copeland has scripted big screen fare like Wild Hogs and Yogi Bear. He also wrote and directed the 2012 indie feature Coffee Town, starring Glenn Howerton, Steve Little, Ben Schwartz and Adrianne Palicki.

So they're going to try again...

 

While I enjoy Knight Rider, how many more times are they going to do this?

Oh please no. 'Knight Rider' sucked badly in the 1980s, and it will suck in feature film form.

I disagree. When I was a kid, Knight Rider was awesome.

I was in my late teens when Knight Rider was originally aired here and thought it sucked. Unlike most of my friends at the time who for some inexplicable reason loved it.

 

Oh, and the A-Team was ###### too.

No. I stand by my opinion. The A-Team plots made no sense whatsoever; no one ever managed to hit someone else during the many gun battles and so on and so forth.

Knight Rider was great for 80s standard.

Team Knight Rider was utter meh, with way too childish settings.

 

As car based action TV series, i prefer Viper, it had a drone too.

Haha, I totally forgot about Viper till you posted that video.  Total Knight Rider rippoff.  Only thing it needed was the base to be a moving 18 wheeler.  :P

Only if the Hoff is reprising his role.  That's the ONLY way I'm watching this.

Or have him play the role of Devon.

The Hoff will do everything in his power to get in on this movie. If he does the movie will go from theatrical release to straight to dvd release.

 

I like Knight Rider and a movie might be fun but The Hoff isn't relevant anymore and the movie could do well without him.
