Knight Rider movie news

Ohh! Yeah!! Knight Rider, like The A-Team, MacGuyver and Miami Vice, is one of those great 80’s action series. They don’t make shows like they used to. They were so dumb and cheesy and so…so…80’s, they could never get away with half of that shit now…so, anyway, here is some news about a Knight Rider movie:

The Weinstein Co is set to give Glen A. Larson’s hit early-mid 1980’s TV series “Knight Rider” a big screen contemporary update. The studio has acquired the rights to the series, and Larson will write and exec produce the feature which aims to begin production next year reports Reuters.

“Knight” follows a cop who’s been left to die and is nursed back to health by a mysterious millionaire. The moneyman also gives the cop a new face; a new name, Michael Knight; and crime-fighting gadgetry, including KITT, the car with artificial intelligence.

Larson has bandied about the project for years, previously developing it at Revolution Studios. One of the reasons for the long delay is Larson’s determination to do a serious adaptation rather than a comedic send-up which people have been pressuring him to do.

I definately agree, do not do a stupid comedic approach to this show turn movie, I want to see a real movie, not a shit spoof version of it. Let us see a good version of Knight Rider and give respect to the tv show the way that it should be done.

Oh man! I still remember playing that stupid Ninetendo video game version of this movie, it was simply a racing game and I could never get to the next level. Those old Nintendo games were so cheesy…they made one for pretty much everything.

I even remember reading somewhere that the worst Nintendo game ever made was a hide and seek game that required the second player to get up and leave the room while the first player would hide behind one of three objects that were on the screen and the decision wasn’t very hard…you could see the person’s head hiding behind the object!!!!

  1. Ha, oh man…I’m sure a comedic send-up would suck. I’m glad he’s pushing for the serious side, though it is kind of a strange movie, anyway.

  2. it was kind of a strange show…now looking back at it…but again, they would have to do some minor changes so that it wasn’t like a Brokeback Car or something…you know?

  3. I don’t know about that. according to this past weeks movies, the summer movie season is off to a better start than last year but it isn’t drawing in as much as they would like.

  4. you know what you’re right. I mean they spend more than some small countries do on one movie and they expect the whole world to come out and see them. Movies aren’t quiet what they used to be anymore.

  5. Exactly. Maybe if they made cheaper, but better movies, and charge less than $10 at the theater, they’d rake in more money.

    It’s hard to believe that even DVD’s cost so much, $20 for a movie that’s several years old (or decades old) is insane. No wonder people aren’t excited to give Hollywood money, they’re not getting what they pay for.

  6. Haha, I don’t. 🙂

    Though I feel mildly bad for not buying music albums I listen to all the time. Mildly bad. It goes away if I find something else to think about.
