David Hasselhoff Wants a Logan-Style Knight Rider Movie

David Hasselhoff has his own idea for a big-screen revival of Knight Rider that borrows a page from Fox’s R-rated Logan.

The actor, who starred in the 1980s action TV series, shared with CinemaBlend that he pitched director Robert Rodriguez a “darker” vision for his character.

“I want to bring it back and make it dark!” Hasselhoff said. “Michael Knight comes back and he’s pissed. … I hope it happens, and if it does, it’ll be kind of like Logan. It will be dark.”

In the original series, which aired from 1982 to 1986, Hasselhoff played a police detective who’s rescued by a billionaire philanthropist after being nearly fatally shot, and then given a new face and identity. Paired with KITT, a modified Trans Am equipped with artificial intelligence, Michael Knight was the primary field agent for a public justice organization, the Foundation For Law and Government. Hasselhoff reprised the role in two television movies, 1991’s Knight Rider 2000 and 2008’s Knight Rider.

Although a digital revival of Knight Rider was announced last year, with Justin Lin behind the camera, there’s been no movement on a potential film for some time. Hasselhoff previously floated his idea for a Fast and the Furious-style franchise, but it’s unclear whether Rodriguez is actually interested in developing the property. The director did pose for a photo with Hasselhoff last year, though.
