Good car chases

I'm helping a friend with an editing project, and I'm looking for KR car chase scenes. Just about every episode has at least one, but are there any that stick out in you mind as being particularly well-edited? I'm not looking for stunts, just good driving footage. (Yes, everyone loves the KARR and G...

What car to use in movie?

A big factor for the series was cost. They needed a good-looking car that they could get a lot of and destroy them. That won't be as critical for the movie. I think one of the reasons why Knight Rider worked so well is that from the outside KITT looked fairly normal; he was an "everyman's" car. If M...

Knight Rider movie on fast track

Daily Variety reported that the Knight Rider movie was on the "fast track". Some people on the board were worried that meant the production would be rushed. That's probably not true. A fast track movie is typically one that doesn't sit around for 6 months waiting for budget approvals. Instead, some ...

What car to use in movie?

Everyone wants to know what kind of car KITT will be in the new movie. We don't know. Pontiac is working with Revolution on cross-promoting their cars with xXx. If they have a successful relationship, they may want to try again with Knight Rider. That's good news. But Trans Ams are no longer a curre...

favorite kr toy memory

My girlfriend bought me the Parker Brothers Knight Rider game when it first came out. She was not a fan, but knew that I would like it.

We played it, and much to her delight, I lost.

Who would you like to play Michael?

You have some bold statements there Chuckysan- I definitely respect those ideas. Yes, having just one young mechanic/engineer/programmer was a little far-fetched. But I think the concept of the attractive mechanic is part of the Knight Rider charm and I wouldn't want to see the Bonnie idea wiped out...

Who would you like to play Michael?

I think of it as 2 questions: 1) Who would play Michael Knight? 2) Who would be KITT's driver? You don't need Michael Knight specifically behind the wheel to have a Knight Rider movie. Hasselhoff could have a small role in the movie but hand the keys over to a brand new character (which sounds like ...

Bonnie and April question.

It was more that the Powers-That-Be wanted someone a little "flashier" in the role... Patricia is obviously both very beautiful, but they figured a hot redhead would be better. They figured wrong, and Bonnie came back.

Junk Yard Dog (warning: mini-essay)

I don't think we should look too much into JYD or Juggernaut to figure out the pH level that can hurt the MBS. I think they were just using the terms generically: JYD's "acid pit" was just a chemical dump with all sorts of nasty material combining in unknown ways.

12 inch Ertl KITT diecast

I have 2 other Ertl cars, 8" and 3" I'd guess. Neither of them have a Knight Rider dash. They have a regular dashboard with a round steering wheel. It's pretty obvious that they took existing Trans Am toys and repackaged them ever so slightly to sell them as KITT. There may be more detail on the lar...

Old KR mention in Variety

Knight Rider had a passing mention in Variety a couple of weeks ago, but I just found the issue. This was before the movie announcement. Before you read the article, I want to stress THERE IS NO KR NEWS HERE. They are speaking hypothetically. That means they're just bouncing ideas around, and what t...

Knight Rider movie is a go!

You're absolutely right about that part Blaze. As it stands now, Knight Rider will be made into a feature film, meaning you'll have to go to a theater and pay 10 bucks to go see it. I'm sure it will be worth it. The one disclaimer is that movie productions get closed down all the time over creative ...

Again, I think we're blowing things out of proportion. For starters, Knight Rider WAS a show targeting young boys. Yes, it also appealed to women and older guys, but the scripts were written at a level that would best appeal to teen boys. That doesn't say anything about the quality of show, that's j...

We are a greedy bunch. We want somebody to make a Knight Rider movie for us. But they better tell us what's going on. Now. And KITT MUST be a black Trans Am. And Hasselhoff needs to be in it.
