UPDATED!! Weinstein Bros have a promotional poster for the KNIGHT RIDER movie in 2008?

Merrick here... We recently ran a detailed article discrediting the car seen in the image posted below, as well as discussing the script status of the film. The article 'tis here! Per the recent article, the poster below would be a fake. I do think that car is kind of cool, though. But it's not in the running for K.I.T.T. You can find out what more about the project via the link above.

Hey folks, Harry here... This got sent to me purporting to be a KNIGHT RIDER the movie promotional poster. Now mind you, I haven't heard of the screenwriter, director or cast - yet, but they've apparently got a poster and a car. It is not unusual for studios to create obscenely early posters like this to bring in investors as well as companies wanting to partner for the merchandize, video games and what not. So - it is reasonalble that the poster could exist. If so, I wouldn't mind having one - as I had a KITT poster on my wall through Junior High and some of High School. If they recast Michael Knight, who would you cast?

    Who cares about Michael...

    by mr_macphisto

    ...will Mr. Pheeny still play the voice of KITT?!? Cuz then I'm IN.

  • Sept. 30, 2006, 1:34 a.m. CST

    The reason they're making this movie

    by The guy

    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

    Feeny!

    by BenFerris

    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.

    What a total fuckin' fiasco this is going to be

    by Liberty Valance

    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.

  • Sept. 30, 2006, 1:38 a.m. CST

    The reason this film is being made

    by The guy

    Is because there were so many unanswered questions with the old TV show. And this story just NEEDS to be retold to a younger audience. But then again, if it's half as good as: Car 54 Where Are You?, Josie And The Pussycats, Scooby Doo, Mc Hale's Navy, Miami Vice, or the Dukes of Hazzard remakes, then fuck it, I'm IN!! What I wanna know is when is the Matt Houston remake coming??

    I think Screech would be the perfect Hoff

    by ShogunMaster

    Crazy curly hair, brilliant acting abilities, was in every episode of their respective shows but were never the reason why any one watched said show anyway. I assume that is why he is trying to raise his prestige with the sex tapes; just to make entry into this franchise. Screech naked = Every Hoff vid ever made. Just horrifying...

    by gdpayne

    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.

    Who Cares?

    by Athanatos

    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.

    Christian Bale as Michael Knight

    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.

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.)

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.

    Nathan Fillion for Michael Knight

    by johnmikeoos

    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.

    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.

    by MarkoOhNo

    Norm MacDonald, hands down, and Andy Dick as the voice of KITT. LOL jk jk But that'd be perfect if they made it a comedy. Seriously though, Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor - Smallville) has all the David Hasslehoff cheesiness & then some. lol Plus he kinda looks like him.

    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

    I just figured it out... I know what KITT should be...

    by Flim_

    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. "Puerto Ricans are lazy, Michael."

    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.

    K.I.T.T. cannot be a...

    by The Selecter

    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.

    Check out the Z06

    It already has the perfect spot for KITT's light bar in the air intake.

    Will Ferrel for Michael Knight, YEAH!

    by nobbykenobi

    Will would be great as the Knight Rider, but only if they set it in the 80's and used the original Kitt.

    Knight Rider casting...

    by DuncanDisorderly

    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?!

    Perfect Casting!

    Simon MacCorkindale as Knight or his boss.

    The only logical script idea for Knight Rider

    by jlgosnell

    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.
