David Hasselhoff Says A Knight Rider Reboot Is Happening
Is a Knight Rider reboot something you want or need in your life? Well, if it is you'll be in good company with David Hasselhoff because it's a thing he wants. Hasselhoff is in the middle of a career boost thanks to his cameo on Baywatch, his time in the Sharnado franchise, and his hilarious turn in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. In an interview with Cinema Blend Hasselhoff confirmed that the reboot is in the works but he can't say much.
I'm on a nice ride. If the ride ends today, the ride ends today. If it goes on — and I think it might go on with another show that we just talked about — then I would welcome that. So we'll see what happens with fate. . . . [It's] nothing I can talk about now, but it starts with Knight and it ends with Rider.
Cinema Blend weren't the only ones to talk to Hasselhoff .The Hollywood Reporter also interviewed him and he revealed that he pitched some ideas to Guardians director James Gunn.
"I've given some ideas to James for Knight Rider and he responded in a big way. If it does go forward, I don't want it to be spoofed like Baywatch or 21 Jump Street. Those films lose what it's about and you have to respect the fans," said Hasslehoff.
If there is a director out there that can walk the line of "parody" and "homage" it's Gunn. However, Gunn's probably going to be too busy pretty much running an entire corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to work on a television show in any real capacity. It's entertaining that he took shoots at the Jump Street movies consider the goofy amount of money that they've made at the box office.
