David Hasselhoff is making a come back… sort off. At the very least, the Baywatch and Knight Rider star had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — where he received a new nickname, Zardu Hasselfrau –- and starred in the music video for Guardians’ Inferno, a special feature for the film. If you think Hasselhoff is ready to fade back into obscurity, you’re wrong. Dead wrong. In fact, Hasselhoff has the perfect project for himself. If anyone else is interested in making it. Or seeing it…
Hasselhoff had a conversation with CinemaBlend about his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Hasselhoff couldn’t help but pitch his dream project:
“I have met Robert Rodriguez. He does Dusk til Dawn and Machete. And I said ‘You need to do Knight Rider.’ Because he was doing a marathon of Knight Riders and he said ‘Can we have a selfie!?’ And I said, ‘No, I don’t want a selfie! I want to do the movie! I want to shoot the TV series! I want to bring it back and make it dark! Michael Knight comes back and he’s pissed.’ … I hope it happens, and if it does, it’ll be kind of like Logan. It will be dark. Hasselhoff as Michael Knight in 2017. Knight Rider. The saga continues.”
Can you picture it? Old man Michael Knight and a rusty, grumpy, “I’m too old for this shit” version of Kitt? Me neither. And, meeting Robert Rodriquez is a far cry from taking meetings with Robert Rodriquez, so while this is a fun look in the mind of The Hoff, don’t expect to ever see this movie. If you do, it just might be the end of days.
Would you watch a dark, Logan-esque follow-up to Knight Rider starring Hasselhoff? Or does this idea sound as silly to you as it does to me? Let us know in the comment section below!
