Rumor: John Cena and Kevin Hart Being Eyed for Possible ‘Knight Rider’ Movie Reboot
The fumes of a Knight Rider reboot have been in the air lately. Earlier this month David Hasselhoff revealed he pitched an idea to James Gunn for a reboot of the original NBC series. The show, which ran from 1982 to 1986, starred Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a crime fighter assisted by his artificially intelligent car KIIT. NBC attempted to reboot the series back in 2008 with Val Kilmer voicing the car, an effort that only lasted a season. And last year Justin Lin was in talks to bring Knight Rider back as a digital series with Machinima. But will a Knight Rider reboot actually happen? A new rumor suggests a revival might be on the way, but in feature-length form.

Or why not revisit Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Running Man one last time? You also better bump The Exorcist to the top of your queue and reschedule your scary movie night; it’s gonna be long gone before Halloween hits. Also, The Truman Show is leaving, a movie that simply cannot be watched too many times.
