Oh God no.
The 1980s television series "Knight Rider" and its crime-busting, talking car are revving up for the big screen.
The drama starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, owner of the high-tech Pontiac Trans Am known as K.I.T.T. The car's voice was supplied by William Daniels.
The film is planned as an action comedy, Daily Variety reported Monday.
Thank Christ for that, at least. I had a terrible fear they might try and play it seriously. Hasselhoff is so far listed only as executive producer and no star has been named, but I wouldn't be surprised somehow if he takes the role. Incidentally, I've just discovered the fellow who provided KITT's voice also appeared in that Simpsons episode with "Night Boat". Useless trivia for you, but there you go...
