David Hasselhoff said a while back that we might actually see Knight Rider revival. He said that James Gunn is currently trying to get the rights to the property so they can actually pursue this project and turn it into a reality.
I would love to see Gunn and Hasselhoff work on a revival series or movie together! While talking to Cinemablend about the revival, he said that he would like to bring Robert Rodriguez in to work on it and that it would have a dark tone and be like Logan.
“I have met Robert Rodriguez. He does Dusk til Dawn and Machete. And I said ‘You need to do Knight Rider.’ Because he was doing a marathon of Knight Riders and he said ‘Can we have a selfie!?’ And I said, ‘No, I don’t want a selfie! I want to do the movie! I want to shoot the TV series! I want to bring it back and make it dark! Michael Knight comes back and he’s pissed.’ … I hope it happens, and if it does, it’ll be kind of like Logan. It will be dark. Hasselhoff as Michael Knight in 2017. Knight Rider. The saga continues.”
I for one like to see Knight Rider as Knight Rider, not as Logan or Dark! I loved it’s lighter tone and mild comedy, what you think about the project?
