If there are any Knight Rider fans reading this sight, I kindly ask them to don their bifocals so that they may read this article with no undue eye strain. After a lot of David Hasselhoff conjecture and wishful thinking, as well as an incredibly crappy NBC TV show in 2008, it appears that there remains some breath to be drawn in the ill-advised adaptation.
In a post-Battleship America, it’s clear that even the worst adaptation of familiar material is superior to even the best unbranded, untested original script. The LA Times (via A.V. Club) states, “as a somewhat higher-budget, more action-oriented movie than Weinstein‘s typical prestige fare.”
So the Knight Rider film will have more action than, say, I Don’t Know How She Does It or Blue Valentine.
