The Weinstein Company is steering an adaptation of the '80s TV series Knight Rider toward the big screen
Intended to repeat the success of the '80s TV series "Knight Rider", The Weinstein Company is about to bring the project into big screen adaptation.
And to bring the idea into life, the studio has acquired rights to the series from creator Glen A. Larson.
"Knight" follows a cop who's been left to die and is nursed back to health by a mysterious millionaire. The moneyman also gives the cop a new face; a new name, Michael Knight; and crime-fighting gadgetry, including KITT, the car with artificial intelligence.
