Former BAYWATCH star DAVID HASSELHOFF has reportedly been axed from the forthcoming movie adaptation of KNIGHT RIDER, despite begging the show's creator for a part. Hasselhoff, who starred as crime-fighting hero MICHAEL KNIGHT in the 1980s TV series alongside talking car KITT, revealed in 2001 he was "excited" and "working hard" to haul the programme to the big screen with GLEN LARSON. However, his name has been omitted from a press release announcing a movie deal between Larson and Miramax heads HARVEY and BOB WEINSTEIN, according to US TV network E! Harvey Weinstein says, "I am a huge fan of the original series and could not be happier that we've joined forces with Glen Larson to bring these iconic characters to the big screen." Larson adds, "Teaming up with Harvey and Bob, with their unparalleled success in motion pictures, gives Knight Rider an exciting opportunity to be a breakout franchise." Hasselhoff briefly reprised his cult cop role in 1991 when he starred in Knight Rider 2000, a made-for-TV movie.
