Knight Rider: The Movie -- Shocker, right?

by | May 9, 2006 | Comments

Glen Larson, creator of the original "Knight Rider" series, will write and produce the big-screen adaptation for Bob & Harvey Weinstein. And that’s it; there are officially no more TV shows left to make movies of. Oh wait, there’s that Gilligan one…

From The Hollywood Reporter: "The talking car K.I.T.T. is heading to the big screen in the Weinstein Co.’s adaptation of Glen A. Larson’s hit 1980s TV series "Knight Rider." Larson will write and exec produce the feature, which he anticipates will begin production next year. The project was brought to the attention of Weinstein Co. co-head Harvey Weinstein by a mutual friend, director David Price, son of Larson’s mentor Frank Price, who headed Universal TV in the 1970s. The project had previously been in development at Revolution Studios. Larson has bandied about the project for 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 said. "There was always some humor on the show, but this film will probably have more gallows, foxhole humor."
