Cena, Hart Wanted For “Knight Rider” Reboot?

WWE star John Cena and comedian Kevin Hart are reportedly being looked at to lead an upcoming big screen reboot of iconic TV series “Knight Rider” at The Weinstein Company according to Screen Rant.

The site’s sources suggests that the project is being conceived as an action/comedy in the vein of the “21 Jump Street” film and would have Cena in David Hasselhoff’s iconic role of Michael Knight alongside Hart as his talking AI-enhanced car KITT.

The likes of Chris Pratt and Danny McBride have been speculatively linked to the project in the past, but what’s described is a very different direction from a proposed take on the property by Hasselhoff recently in which he said he has a “dark, Logan-inspired drama” in mind and has discussed the idea with director Robert Rodriguez.
