Aint It Cool News have been alerted about plans for Knight Rider‘s future via a statement made from a producer of the Anaconda movies — the last of which starred David Hasselhoff:
“The producers of Sony’s 2009 release Anaconda 4 (or whatever it was called) which stars David Hasselhoff said they’re going to make more of them, but it won’t star David.
“He said that David will probably be too busy to do a 5th film in the series (he did 3 & 4 back to back) because he’s returning to TV.
“The plan for the next season of KNIGHT RIDER, says he, is for David Hasselhoff to be a regular on the show. He’d be teamed with his on-screen son Mike Tracer (Justin Bruening) to solve weekly adventures in the hopes that that boosts ratings. I wish them luck 😉 “
In essence this move would bring the show in line with David’s original pitch to NBC last year.
