Knight Rider planning his return to the Big Screen

According to a report made by Reuters, Knight Rider and his talking car K.I.T.T. are heading to the big screen. The article says that the successful 80’s series creator, Glen A. Larson will write and executive produce the Weinstein Co. project, which he anticipates will begin production in 2007. The “Knight Rider” project had previously been in development at Sony-based Revolution Studios.

Larson had the idea for a movie version of K.I.T.T rolling in his mind for a lot of years. "A number of people wanted to do a pure comedic send-up of it, but I always felt that would throw away the franchise”, he says. "There was always some humor on the show, but this film will probably have more gallows, foxhole humor

The report doesn’t say whether David Hasselhoff, who was the star in the series, would appear in the movie. Wonder which car should replace the original Pontiac in the movie. Any ideas?
