Last year, we reported that The Weinstein Company had tapped screenwriter Brad Copeland (Wild Hogs) to pen the script for a big screen adaptation of the 1980s TV series Knight Rider. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a police detective reborn into a modern high-tech crime fighter by billionaire Wilton Knight. Michael becomes an agent of Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG), along with his vehicular partner, K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand), who was voiced by William Daniels (Boy Meets World). The show was remade back in 2008, but lasted for less than a season.
Word on the project has been quiet since Copeland was hired, but now it looks like the movie might be going the action-comedy route. Hit the jump for more.
