|Home: BigScreen Journal - "Knight Rider" coming to the big screen|
[Series creator Glen A. Larson] has bandied about the project for years. "A number of people wanted to do a pure comedic send-up of it, but I always felt that would throw away the franchise," he said. "There was always some humor on the show, but this film will probably have more gallows, foxhole humor. Despite the darker tone, he said he would aim for a PG-13 rating because he doesn't want to exclude the series' core audience. The show ran on NBC from 1982-86.There's no word on whether David Hasselhof will reprise his role, or if William Daniels will be back to do the voice of KITT. Speaking of KITT, what are they going to use for a car? Pontiac Firebirds haven't been made for quite some time, and I would certainly hope that episode involving KITT being installed in a '57 Chevy won't be repeated. Maybe GM would let them use one of those new Camaro prototypes that made the show circuit this year... (Just so long as they don't cast Jessica Simpson to play Bonnie) When I saw this, I wondered about why I haven't heard that Magnum P.I. hasn't been made into a movie. One look at the IMDb shows that such a movie is in the script stage, with a tentative 2007 release. Put Tom Selleck in a new Ferarri SuperAmerica or F430 Spider, and bring back the original T.C, Rick, and Higgins? Yeah, I'd be there.
