Knight Rider Movie

David Hasselhoff is currently back in the spotlight for a presumably limited amount of time thanks to his cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, More importantly, Hasselhoff has even more fun performing the disco track “Guardians Inferno” on the film’s soundtrack, not to mention starring in the supplemental music video on the home video release. And the former Baywatch star is using the opportunity to talk about the hopes he has for a big screen adaptation of a familiar property he starred in back in the 1980s.

Knight Rider is a fan favorite show from the 1980s that hasn’t yet had a successful update on film or TV like many other shows from the same decade. If David Hasselhoff had his way, there would already be a successful reboot of Knight Rider, and he’s doing everything he can to try to make it happen. Just recently, we heard Hasselhoff had tried to convince Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to be at the helm of a Knight Rider movie, but now he wants Robert Rodriguez to direct, and he knows exactly which movie he wants to emulate.

Escape from New York Remake

Remaking Escape From New York is a bad idea and everyone involved in doing so should be ashamed of themselves.

With that out of the way, let’s get to the news. It seems that Robert Rodriguez is the latest director to find himself at the helm of a new version of John Carpenter‘s dystopian action masterpiece. He’s one in a long line of filmmakers to take a crack at this, so anything can happen. However, there’s something else to glean from this…

Christoph Waltz Alita Battle Angel

After several years of on-again, off-again development, Alita: Battle Angel got a much-needed shot in the arm last year when Robert Rodriguez signed on to direct. Not long after, Rosa Salazar was cast in the lead role.

And in a shocking twist, he might actually get to play a good guy for once.  Read More »

alita battle angel casting

James Cameron has been talking about a film adaptation of the manga Battle Angel Alita for a long, long time, with the science fiction action film at one point competing with Avatar to be his next project. Alas, Avatar got made first and Mr. Cameron decided to spend the rest of his life exploring every last nook and cranny on Pandora, which freed up the project for another filmmaker. Enter Robert Rodriguez, who signed on to make the film last year, with Cameron remaining on board as a producer.

Now that a less-preoccupied director is at the helm, Alita: Battle Angel (the new title for the film) actually looks like it could cease being a thing that Cameron occasionally mentions in-between Avatar updates and start being a thing that actually exists. They’re looking at lead actresses and everything!
