Knight Rider Car Will Talk in Forthcoming Movie
Apparently, Knight Rider executives considered silencing the beloved Trans Am, KITT. But the star thought better of it:
Hasselhoff Holds Out for Talking Kitt in Movie (Oldies 108)
A new big-screen version of Knight Rider has endured a two year delay – because movie bosses wanted to mute the show’s trademark talking car, Kitt.
But David Hasselhoff, who starred in the original 1982 TV series and is taking the lead in the upcoming remake, has insisted the vehicle have a voice of its own or he wouldn’t make the film.
He says, “It’s stupid. There’s no film without a talking car.”
Never again shall the world doubt that the singer of “Dance Dance Damour” is a man of principle.
