News has come in about a remake of Knight Rider film being in the pre-production stage at The Weinstein Company, and we have also come to know that two high-profile stars Kevin Hart and John Cena are under consideration to play important roles in the film. Reportedly sources close to the film have stated the following:
“For the role of Knight, the studio is hoping to get WWE star John Cena, while omnipresent comedian Kevin Hart is seen as a possibility for the voice of KITT. It’s important to note that neither has been officially cast, and the Weinstein Company is simply interested in getting them onboard.”
If these two stars do get involved in the project, then it would mean a completely new representation of the Knight Rider Story that the fans are fond of. Comparisons have already begun between this movie and the 21 Jump Street Reboot. Die-hard fans of the original Knight Rider series might not find it much appealing, but, the new perspective gives a great scope for a comedy film if these two famous names feature in it.
We will keep sharing further updates on the development of the Knight Rider film as soon as further developments take place.
