Or else they should have ommited it from the boxset. Not to mention its where Devon died, one cannot just forget that or pretend it didn't happen.
It's probably safe to think that they will try to build a story in the future based on where the KR2000 movie left off. While this may not be a grand idea for some fans, I think this is the most logical choice.

When people think of Knight Rider, they don't think of the red Knight 4000 or Shawn or Attack Beast. They think of Michael and his black Trans Am. That's where I think the writers should (and will) start from. It makes no sense to me for the writers to force themselves into a creative corner simply because of some marketting phrases on a DVD.

I agree. Star Trek II basically pretended the first movie never happened, so surely this new Knight Rider movie could do the same thing. Besides, the idea of Michael coming out of retirement after 20 years instead of just 10 would be a lot cooler I think.
The one thing I DON'T want to see though is a "futuristic" setting. What made the series so fun was seeing a futuristic car flying down the streets of a real city in a real world. But when everything else is new and futuristic, KITT just doesn't stand out as much.
