The Knight Rider will ride again soon according to David Hasselhoff

Hollywood has a big fascination at the moment in trying to recreate the magic of the 80’s – so it should come as no surprise that there is yet another attempt on its way to revive the 80’s classic series Knight Rider. That’s according to its star David Hasselhoff who shared some recent updates about this with Mirror UK.

While Knight Rider has been rebooted before, it was not quite as successful as the original iconic show which saw Hasselhoff play the role of Michael Knight, high-tech crime fighter assisted by a self-aware and indestructible vehicle Kitt – the real star of the show. It seems this time though that Hasselhoff could indeed be involved in the project again as he promised that there are plans on the way to bring the show back and that we could likely expect something soon, saying that  “the Knight Rider will ride again,” although he’s “not supposed to say anything.”

Discussions around a new Knight Rider revival though have apparently been happening for years now (including possibly as a comedic movie starring John Cena and Kevin Hart), and The Hoff revealed that hiss name has only been thrown into the mix rather recently as they initially wanted to do the show without him:

We talked about another series about eight to nine years ago. But they wanted to do it without me.

Whatever future lies in store for the Knight Rider though it seems like we will finally find out soon. Whether we want another one though is a different discussion altogether.

    The question on my mind is which vehicle manufacturer is going to be fortunate enough to provide the donor vehicles on which ‘KITT’ will be based. Let’s start:

    Lexus RC (simply because I am partial to Lexus)

      Though I am without a doubt a bigger Lexus fan than you 😉 I don’t want Lexus to be potentially tarnished by something that doesn’t turn out right.

        Admittedly, I betrayed my IS250 for a 5 series beemer, but now I think I will be returning to the fold soon.

          And with a Beemer. Man, that’s a deep cut. I’m just playing in the Asian playfield….don’t need no German troubles 😉 But would love to get a Lexus.

            Seriously, IS250 is costly!

    Well, they completely and totally f*ed up CHIPS, so here’s hoping they don’t do the same here.

        I saw the trailers, didn’t crack a smile and then saw Larry Wilcox’s reaction to it. I would not even pirate that movie, it would be a waste of my time.
        So no. I haven’t watched it, but I think it’s obvious enough that it’s not worthy of the name.

          Are you saying a reviewer made you not watch it? For shame Jj! Nana preaches you must only experience everything for yourself!

            Larry Wilcox is not a reviewer. It’s the freaking actor from the original CHIPS.
            Also, Nana is nice and all, but NO I do not want to experience him.

    The 2008 reboot hurt me. I don’t want to be hurt again.

    Noo. The series worked because of the time period. The fact we practically HAVE talking cars now takes away the magic.

      KITT though is almost sentient though. AI and all that. Could you really compare today’s cars, which are programmed with what to say, with something you could hold a decent conversation with.

        Nah. I meant more like back in the 80s people were shook when the car spoke.
