K.I.T.T. may be soon be picking up some very funny passengers.
Chris Pratt and Danny McBride rumored to be in consideration for the long-delayed big screen take on "Knight Rider," according to Schmoesknow. Although nothing is anywhere near confirmed, it's rumored that one of the duo could star as Michael Knight, while the other would likely provide the voice for the futuristic car known as K.I.T.T.
"Arrested Development" vet Brad Copeland is writing the script for The Weinstein Company.
The original "Knight Rider" starred David Hasselhoff and the voice of William Daniels, and ran on NBC from 1982 to 1986. It spawned a series of made-for-TV movies, and a short-lived 2008 TV remake which starred Justin Bruening and Val Kilmer as the voice of K.I.T.T.
McBride recently starred in "This is the End," and will next be heard in the animated comedy "Hell & Back," before appearing alongside Bruce Willis and Bill Murray in "Rock the Kasbah."
"Parks and Recreation" star Pratt can currently be heard in "The Lego Movie," and will soon be seen in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy."
