    Interesting... I've been meaning to get into the Knight Rider series, both the original and the new ones, and I would be interested in seeing a theatrical movie if it's good.

    Interesting. If they can't get Mr. Feeny back to do the voice of KITT, David McCallum might do well.

    Where, exactly, is the "2011-12" coming from?

    The first link was last updated 19 months ago, and completely ignores the 2008 movie and series.

    And the second merely says that a film is "in development". So are gazillions of other movies that never happen.

    I hope they get a car that looks like the true KITT if this movie makes it to full production.

    I'm a HUGE Knight Rider fan, but I'm done with this franchise trying to be "rebooted". I'm all for a reboot if it's REALLY cool, but it's gonna have to be AWESOME for me to be interested.

    I hope they use a Trans Am... or some newer Pontiac that looks as good.

    The last (real) pontiac was in Transformers 1 as Jazz, And his death foretold the death of the Company.

    But they can use Pontiac G8 modified to a two door but then they might as well use the Camaro since that's what it is anyway.

    Cool. As someone who liked KR 2008, if this is true and more than a rumour/old news I'll be excited.

    I want to see a good story, good acting, and a hot car (doesn't matter what make/model as long as it's "KITT").

    I hope that doesn't become a straight up comedy. It seems like most movie adaptations of TV shows tend to go the comedy route or at least more lighthearted than the original series. It did work out well for 21 Jump Street, but that doesn't apply to everything.

    But that is the Hollywood mentality, it worked once apply it to everything in hopes lightning strikes twice. Plot, acting ability, good storytelling, those are secondary. It worked once so X+X must = profit.

    I will hate them with all passion if this becomes a comedy.

    Meh.

    They've been trying to revive "Knight Rider" since the original show went off the air, and IMO none of those attempts ever panned out to anything meaningful or memorable, even the ones that the Hoff was actually involved in in whatever capacity. And at least three of those (KR2000, TeamKR, KR '08) have already involved the 'passing of the torch' trope to some degree, so it's pretty clear that THAT'S not quite cutting it, either. Personally I think it's probably time to make a clean break.

    Therefore - and I know I'm gonna be called a blasphemer, a heretic, an infidel and a heathen for this; use whatever term you feel comfortable with, frankly - but I think it's time for "Knight Rider" to get a RADICAL head-to-toe revamping, something so off the beaten path to what came before in all the previous attempts and departs from everything that they milked for all its worth. Sure, keep the core premise of the original series just for that one solitary shred of familiarity - presumed-dead cop Michael Knight and his talking supercar KITT fighting crime and protecting the powerless - but change EVERYTHING else about the execution of it.

    I thought that was the obvious thing to do.
