RUMOR: Chris Pratt And Danny McBride Offered Roles In The Knight Rider Remake

This again comes from Schmoes Know, who have been pretty spot on on some things, while being off on others, so take this with a grain of salt.

According to the Schmoes, the big screen remake of 1980s series Knight Rider, starring David Hasselhoff and a talking car who fought crime together (the 80s were a weird time, man), has made offers out to Chris Pratt and Danny McBride to star.

Now, this strikes me as the more dubious of their scoops, mainly because the film doesn’t even have a director yet. But I think it’s worth noting that Pratt and McBride are two actors who tend to stay on the comedic side of things, and as the Schmoes also point out, this could indicate that this is a 21 Jump Street-style remake wherein the comedy is played up much more than in the original dramatic series. And it’s hard to argue against another 21 Jump Street, isn’t it?
