Is because there were so many unanswered questions with the old TV show, and this story just needed to be retold. But then again, if it's as good as Mc Hale's Navy, Josie And The Pussycats, Miami Vice, or The Dukes Of Hazzard, then fuck that I'm IN!!
Sept. 30, 2006, 1:36 a.m. CST
I just hope they keep Daniels for the voice, other then that, I'd prefer an unknown or Nathan Fillion for Michael Knight. Just don't shove Paul Walker down my throat.

This reminds me of that godawful Lost in Space flick New Line shat out about a decade ago. Take a kitschy TV show that was kind of cool and futuristic back when it aired and give it a modern big-budget makeover. The problem is that it was no longer cool or futuristic by the time it came out. Sure, 20 years ago a talking car with all sorts of nifty gadgets was an original idea. Since that time it's all been done to death in Bond films and the like, and videogames have more advanced AI than KITT ever did. Knight Rider has nothing more going for it than nostalgic camp value, and that doesn't equate to major box office. They could get Tom Hanks to star, Spielberg to direct and it would still fuckin' bomb.

The car is a Koenigsegg CCX. The image is photoshopped from the image on this page. http://www.koenigsegg.com/thecars/ccx.asp While it would be interesting if they used this car, I somehow doubt it.
Sept. 30, 2006, 3:50 a.m. CST
I haven't seen the show since it originally aired and I have no desire to watch a crap movie. Although this discussion is pointless since that poster is obviously fake. If it were made I wouldn't be surprised if they made the car's voice someone like Bernie Mack and made it a comedy sidekick. Damn Hollywood's gone down the crapper.

The car isn't even the problem, but look at the "Knight will fall in" font and how they placed "2008". Never ever is this a real poster.
Sept. 30, 2006, 4:34 a.m. CST
Would be a great casting choice. But now that I think about it, they'll go with some stupid stunt cast with no-talent actors, a la Ashton Kutcher or Timberlake. Hell it might even be Stifler.
Sept. 30, 2006, 5:22 a.m. CST

desert. Cheap-skate Hollywood can rarely do anything beyond a few dozen miles from L.A. Desert, desert and more desert. At least the X-Files was in Vancouver for the first several seasons before succumbing to L.A.-friendly, desert plotlines. (Though the same problem occurred in those early X-Files episodes that pretended to be in other settings: a lake in Georgia and the forests around Tallahassee looked strikingly like the Pac Northwest.)

Sept. 30, 2006, 8:26 a.m. CST
...from the official website. If KITT were a CCX, I would see this movie. If KITT were a Pagani Zonda, I would see this movie. If KITT were a Mercedes McLaren SLR, I would see this movie. If KITT were a Bugatti Veyron, I would see this movie. Who am I kidding... If KITT were a FIAT Panda, I would see this movie. The most important question, however, is "Will Michael Knight's evil twin Garth Knight be in the movie? And indeed, will he bring his badass rig, Goliath, with him?" Answer me this.
Sept. 30, 2006, 8:35 a.m. CST

This movie is built on b-level concept and they need somebody who can ably sell it. If I was directing, I'd tempt fate and ask Fillion to do it. He'd embrace the camp of the material and elevate it, much like he did with Slither.
Sept. 30, 2006, 10:58 a.m. CST
I still think it's an ok poster, 'knight will fall in 2008...' not that bad either..no one here seems to be able to do better..mind you, you all claim you can... <p> I think the idea of Nathan Fillion could rock, unless the W Bros. want someone with more BO appeal..what about James Franco?

That monkey from BJ and the Bear. Better actor than the original and hasn't worked in a while so should come cheap. Also a great draw for kids. Kids love monkeys. And he's gotta be a better singer.
Sept. 30, 2006, 11:01 a.m. CST
I'm sure that car is fast but you're not going to see that car pulling off any of the stunts that KITT did in the series.

...the Kitt car protected Michael from a Nuclear explosion and then proceeded to dry hump him in a series of disturbing visions that lead him to be the new president of the survivors. Good stuff.
Sept. 30, 2006, 11:21 a.m. CST
Ben Stiller should be the new Michael Knight, because honestly, watching Ben Stiller argue with KITT over mundane little issues like seat belts and rocket boosts sound Hi-larious!
Sept. 30, 2006, 11:28 a.m. CST
Ben Stiller as Hannibal. Owen Wilson as Templeton Peck. Will Ferrel as Howlin' Mad Murdock. And Snoop Dogg as angry black man, BA Barracas. "Yo, I pizzitty the fizzzy, fo shizzy."

Please! Even I can see the seams on this knockoff. But - If I was to recast Michael Knight? Eric Bana or Dominic West. I would also cast Keith David as the voice of KITT and Anthony Hopkins or James Earl Jones as the voice of Goliath. Niiiiiice.
Sept. 30, 2006, 12:38 p.m. CST
It's gonna be a frat packer...my guess is Luke Wilson. They'll go to Ferrell, Vaughn, Owen then Stiller and then give up and go to Luke. You just know it'll happen. That is...if they're going to make this a comedy...surely they won't try to make this serious.

Sept. 30, 2006, 12:52 p.m. CST
I know it's probably a fake, but that car is seriously weak. Michael Knight used to tool around in a Trans Am which was muscle car. This "concept" car looks like something a 22 year old girl would buy herself to celebrate landing a job after graduating nursing school. It's a cross between a Ford Tempo and a VW bug.
Sept. 30, 2006, 12:53 p.m. CST
They should cast, say, Jack Black in this and play it as a comedy like with the Starsky and Hutch movie. And Stiller could direct. Nah, couldn't happen. Screw this, I want my Tweaky movie.

You guys can take this idea if you want... Let's make the movie more about KITT.... he's a lot more interesting than the michael knight character.. So, kitt starts out as a artificial intellent program in a crazy, kickass tank/batmobile. After the program got scrapped because of cost, the scientist couldn't bare destoying everything. so they, put Kitt in a car... and the whole movie is about Kitt getting adjusted to a car, michael, and being civil. sounds good to me.

Trust me on this, that car is far from lame. It's one of the fastest, most savage and uncontrollable cars on the planet. It would be the ideal choice for K.I.T.T, but it's obvious that it's going to be an American gas guzzling bus thats going to be used and not a european supercar. I have to admit, the Bugatti Veron would be awesome

KITT should be that most muscley of cars, from a land where time seems to have stopped in the 1970s, and where emmissions regulations mean nothing. From a land where the El Camino seemed so much more than just a car that it spawned a genus of cars. Yes, I'm talking about the Holden Monaro, AKA the Pontiac GTO. THERE is your KITT.<br>That's the closest thing to a muscle car in American showrooms these days... Too bad my government is too stupid to let it in to my country... eh?<br>PS.

Go back and take a good look at some of the crap the Weinsteins have tried to pass off as poster art over the years. Pay close attention to any movie starring Jet Li or Jackie Chan. Pay especially close attention to the INFERNAL AFFAIRS DVD and the Caucasian Stephen Chow on their SHAOLIN SOCCER DVD. This looks more like a real poster than some of their real posters.

Eurotrash sportscar or some other exotic. The original was a stealthy car that didn't stand out and was commonly mistaken for an ordinary car which then surprised the baddies. Any sort of high-dollar sportscar or nichemobile would stick out like a sore thumb. James Bond could pull that off, but not our everyday hero, Michael Knight. He belongs in an American musclecar, like the aforementioned GTO or maybe a Vette. If GM is smart, they'll pony up the bucks and use the movie to promote the new Camaro.

In my humble, little opinion, the ideal person to play Michael Knight would be John Cusack. He can do the combat scenes and he would also be very good at the bon homme scenes between Michael and K.I.T.T. On a third note; just imagine how awesome he would be hamming it up as evil "twin" Garth Knight!!! This however begs the question: will we get flames on Goliath?!

When it comes to Knight Rider the movie I feel the only true way to do it would be to cast it in the style of the X-Files movie. However, if your a fan of Knight Rider you will remember Devon was killed off in the made for tv movie Knight Rider 2000. So, what I sugest is keep Hasselhoff around however, have him take over where Devon left off, thus allowing him to choice a new Knight Rider following the same story line that was used when he himself was made a Knight Rider.
