David Hasselhoff Had An “Emotional Hand” In The Conception Of The New Knight Rider Movie

The 68-year-old actor starred as crime-fighter Michael Knight in the TV action series between 1982 and 1986.

Speaking to Consequence of Sound, the star revealed that he is invested in the upcoming movie – despite not knowing if he will have a role in the flick.

He said: “The details I can share are I have an emotional hand in it and I have a passion. The guy who’s writing it is a major ‘Knight Rider’ fan. He sent me a picture of him in the ‘Knight Rider’ car. His name is T.J. Fixman.”

Hasselhoff continued: “The concept, I don’t really know. I threw my hat into the ring as ‘nostalgia meets Knight Rider of today’, which is not a new Knight Rider, but a continuation of it.

“It’s not about a talking car. It’s about the relationship between Michael and KITT. And it’s also about the action and ‘one man can make a difference’. And if they do that, I’ll probably support it. If they don’t do that, they’ve hassled The Hoff.”
