Deadline is reporting that Aquaman filmmaker James Wan is developing a feature film adaptation of the iconic David Hasselhoff television series Knight Rider through his Atomic Monster production company, which will be teaming up with Spyglass Media Group on the project. Ratchet and Clank writer TJ Fixman is penning the screenplay.
The original Knight Rider series totaled 90 episodes over the course of a four-season run that began in 1982 through 1986. Hasselhoff starred as Michael Knight, an agent for the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG), driving the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a technologically advanced Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. William Daniels provided the voice of KITT.
Wan is currently in post-production on Malignant, his latest directorial effort and his first foray into horror since 2016’s The Conjuring 2. As a producer, he has a number of projects in various stages of development, including The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and the Mortal Kombat reboot.
