Rumor: Chris Pratt And Danny McBride May Lead The ‘Knight Rider’ Reboot

Chris Pratt is currently having the best week ever. Not only is The Lego Movie a runaway success, but the excitement surrounding his next two cinematic endeavors (Jurassic Park IV and Marvel’s Guardians Of A Galaxy) is high as well. He has the ‘Midas touch’ for the time being, and if a story on Schmoes Know is to be believed he may soon join Danny McBride in rebooting Knight Rider.

The Weinstein Company is currently working on a reboot of the once popular 80s television series Knight Rider, which told the story of a guy (David Hasselhoff) who fought crime with the help of his talking, nearly-indestructible car. The reboot is being written by Brad Copeland (Wild Hogs, Coffee Town), and according to the story on Schmoes Know talks are currently underway with Chris Pratt and Danny McBride to star. Exact roles are not discussed in the article, but it’s not hard to imagine Pratt as the leading man, with McBride lending his voice to KITT.

Given the fact Copeland is attached to pen the script, it seems likely this reboot will take the route of 21 Jump Street and attempt to tell a current, somewhat meta story. We will bring you more information once additional details are confirmed.
