Seminal 1980's TV show Knight Rider is to be made into a Hollywood movie - with original star DAVID HASSELHOF on board as executive producer.

Revolution Studios have bought the rights to the action-comedy film and will turn give it the big-budget treatment.

The series followed the adventures of crime fighter MICHAEL KNIGHT and his talking car KITT.

An industry source says, "The show was a massive hit and it's clear the movie will be a success."
