K.I.T.T. From The KNIGHT RIDER Movie?? Or, Bored Fans With Photoshop??

Merrick here...

Okay, folks -- take this one with a BIG grain of salt. But, we kind of have to go here....

Both TikkiMotel and butt-guru (I'm not sure I want to know exactly what a "butt guru" is, although it would be a fantastic name for either a rock group or a porn DVD) sent in this picture.

It was found AT THIS LOCATION. The person posting the image says that this represents a developmental design for K.I.T.T. in the KNIGHT RIDER movie we're starting to hear about. Notice the lack of reflectivity on the surface around K.I.T.T.'s Cylon eye? Hmmmm....

Last week, it was reported that The Hoff will actually be appearing in this film & asked Orlando Bloom to play his son....a notion on which Orlando didn't seem particularly keen.

Longtime readers of the site may remember my shameful preoccupation with this particular Hasselhoff video...

...which I feel fully emobdies the breadth of Hoff's capabilities. I hope this portends a KNIGHT RIDER theme song, maybe from The Hoff himself!? Perhaps a man-and-car power balad? Or, maybe rap style -- with William Daniels' K.I.T.T. voice scratching in the background? "Michael! My...My... My...Michael!"

UPDATED: Of course, this video may be far more appropriate!

In all seriousness, if anyone out there knows anything about the legitimacy of this image...or the status of the KNIGHT RIDER movie project in general... please E-MAIL ME! I'd love to hear from you...

    Not unless they spent the whole budget on the car

    by jackinitraw

    David Hasslehoff is not properly medicated. The show wasn't even very good and survived on being the 80's. If this actually ends up getting made I'll be morbidly impressed.

    I'm gonna laugh....

    by rotten666

    when this project gets off the ground and the fans boys get buthurt over the treatment of a second rate 80's television show (IE: Transformers). "Dude, that's not the way kit looked. Oh man they changed Micheal Knight into a girl!" You know, shit like that.

  • Sept. 6, 2006, 10:21 a.m. CST

  • Sept. 6, 2006, 10:51 a.m. CST

    The project IS legitimate!

    by oceansized

    They're going the comedic route with it, a la Charlie Angels. The premise is to have an uptight, neurotic (translation: white) protagonist who through a twist of fate becomes KITTs new driver. Here's where the reimagining comes in: the voice of KITT will now be (as I've heard it put) "hip, street-smart, and urban". They're hoping to get Ludacris to do it. Of course, the car will teach its new driver some valuable lessons about being a man (note the clever irony). The Hoff will reportedly play the villian; another step in the self-cheesiness embracing,William Shatner phase of his career.

    please tell me you're kidding. That's a horrible idea, a rape of my childhood, and a perpetuation of no talent rappers becoming no talent actors. The Dukes of Hazzard movie sucked because they took that approach.

    That's Hofftastic

    by The_Deathticle

    That video is reason #2,309 why Hasselhoff is the biggest douchebag on the planet, a position long held by Tommy Lee until The Hoff's recent re-emergence. The thing is, you want to believe that he does all this with his tongue in his cheek, self-aware of how bad everything he does is. But no. Watch him on a talk show or something. He honestly thinks he is quite the talented artiste. The man wanted to take credit for helping bring down the Berlin Wall with his music, for God's sake, a claim which actually may have some merit, as I would probably tear down a giant concrete wall too in an attempt to escape one of his concerts. Hmmmmm, I wonder if this video has any military applications. Broadcast this over the Al Jazeera Network and we'll have a peaceful Iraq within 48 hours. Anyway, back on topic. Knight Rider: The Movie. The series was fun when you were a kid in the 80's. Now, all growns up, it's impossible to watch, much like my once beloved A-Team. But go ahead, Hollywood. Keep churning these bullshit remakes and re-imaginings out. Someone must be paying money to see this shit because you keep making them. My ass, however, will not be among those parked in a theater seat for this.

    As hey speed up to turbo boost over a train blocking their path. KITT says, "Michael we ain't gonna make it! I'm tellin ya, dog!" Michael reponds, "Why, yes, we will, KITT. As a former race car driver that was injured in a race and secretly recruited by the Foundation, you must learn to trust me," and presses Turbo Boost on the dash. They sail over the train, and Michael says, "See? I told you we would make it, didn't I?" KITT responds, "Aww, maaan. Ni**a, fuck you..."

    Carmilla and Orions, re: Small Wonder.

    by Orbots Commander

    Not only was Small Wonder one of the worst TV shows ever produced, but if you think about the premise, it's actually kind of disturbing---almost a pedophiles wet dream. Think about it: a zany family-man-scientist creates his very own little robot girl, keeps her in a closet, obediently obeys the family's and his young son's every command and can shut 'her' down by turning off a switch in a panel on 'her' back. Ugh. The premise itself makes me want to go take a shower.

    Knight Rider 2000 (1991)

    by jegoing74

    This was the reunion movie with the exception of either the three mechanics from he tv series, just Devon Miles in little more than a cameo before his demise. The body they used was based on a the Pontiac Banshee concept, as GM wouldn't allow them to use that car, they had too many "I want the knight Rider car" requests from the old tv series. I could see the Camaro body be the basis for a new T/A.

    by Lamerz

    30 minutes into the movie: Michael and KITT chase the bad guy's plane on the runway, but at the last minute, the plane takes off. Michael yells, and slams on the brakes, skidding out. Michael gets out of KITT in slow motion as the camera pans around the car, showing the red eye moving back and forth, then focusing on Knight from a low angle as he gets up and gives a tough look off into the distance. ................. You know you want to see that, bitches!

    You know, even though the show is very dated now and does come off as 80's style cheese...I would love to see a retooled modern day more serious sci-fi action film version. I mean, they could retain all the high points of the show (K.I.T.T. and Michael's relationship, Bonnie, Devon and the Foundation for Law and Goverment, the roving Knight Semi) but instead of crazy truckers on strike or angry motorcylce gangs being the heavies, they could just have Michael's enemies from his previous life tracking him down or have K.A.R.R. I'm tired of the 80's t.v. remakes being jokes. Make one and take it seriously. If there ever was a t.v. show from the 80's that deserved a big screen serious treatment its KNIGHT RIDER and QUANTUM LEAP.
