The Weinstein Company has hired Brad Copeland to write the first draft of an upcoming big-screen adaptation of the classic 80's action series Knight Rider.

The original series starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a crime-fighter that is aided by a futuristic talking Trans Am called KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand). The show was rebooted by NBC in 2008 featuring a Ford Mustang as the A.I. infused vehicle with Justin Bruening starring.

Brad Copeland is best known for his work on Arrested Development and The Inbetweeners. He also wrote Walt Becker's comedy Wild Hogs and makes his directorial debut with the upcoming indie comedy Coffee Town.

No production details have been released.

    I'd be more optimistic about this if they said Hasselhoff was involved. He truly knew the flavor of this series and the human story behind the fancy stunts etc of a AI Car that wants to learn what it is to be human. If they bring that element back into it with the right writers, it has a shot but I'm not sure that format's right for a movie as a TV series fleshes it out more properly IMO.
