David Hasselhoff Has The Best Idea For A New Knight Rider Movie

Revivals have become the bread and butter of Hollywood in recent years. On the small screen, as well as the silver, bringing iconic properties back for new audiences has proven itself to be an immensely profitable tactic. One of the next Hollywood revivals we will receive is an update of Baywatch, and while David Hasselhoff won’t return for his iconic role, he has some ideas regarding bringing his other iconic TV series Knight Rider back for contemporary viewers.


Speaking with Variety, David Hasselhoff explained that he has a phenomenal idea for how to bring his hit series Knight Rider back:

I see it as more of a continuation of the TV series, and they can add new characters or whatever, but they should basically keep the same feeling of the show. There are so many people out there that will absolutely freak out and love it. It would be Michael Knight kind of coming out of retirement with his son and having adventures around the world, and doing a Fast and Furious with the Knight Rider car. How cool does that sound? How cool could it be?

There’s absolutely no question that this sort of project could work. The vehicular carnage of the Fast and the Furious franchise has become incredibly popular, as well as extremely profitable over the last few years. Bringing The Hoff into the equation to team up with Michael Knight's son for a Knight Rider reboot would not only capitalize on the love audiences have for that kind of action, but it would also most certainly draw in a section of the audience who has some degree of nostalgia for his old series.


Knight Rider revivals have occurred before. Back in 2008 NBC tried to reboot the series with little to no success. However, The Hoff’s version of a Knight Rider revival would likely work much better because it wouldn’t be a remake- it would be a continuation of the original story that would bring his character Michael Knight back into action.
