It appears “Knight Rider” will live again.
The classic 1980’s action series starring David Hasselhoff is currently being remade into a feature film with Spyglass Media group teaming up with “Aquaman” director James Wan and his production company as well as Michael Clear.
While details remain sketchy at this time, the “Knight Rider” movie is expected to take place in the present day but not much more is known about the plans for the film.
TJ Fixman — best know for his work on several prominent video games as well a number of scripts that are currently in development — is on board to adapt a screenplay for the new “Knight Rider” movie.
The original “Knight Rider” series created by Glen Larson first debuted in 1982 and ran for four seasons on NBC. In the story, a police detective named Michael Long (Hasselhoff) is involved in a near fatal shooting but he’s rescued by a mysterious benefactor, who puts him under radical reconstructive plastic surgery before he’s reborn as “Michael Knight” and gifted a nearly indestructible Pontiac Firebird Trans Am called KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand) that comes complete with an artificial intelligence computer that helps Michael solve crimes.
“Knight Rider” spawned several TV movies as well as a short-lived television reboot that was released in 2008.
Now it appears a new “Knight Rider” will be reborn in a feature film with additional plans for the movie to be revealed at a later date.
