Knight Rider Digital Series Coming in 2017

The Knight Rider digital series aims to reboot the 1982 classic. At some point next year, we can expect to ride along with a new generation of autonomous cars.

While he isn’t directing this series, you still know Lin as the director of the Fast and Furious franchise as well as the more recent Star Trek Beyond. Having a certain producer don’t always guarantee a certain level of quality. However, we hope that this time it does. Other notable directors like J.J. Abrams and Christopher Nolan have shown that their blessing is as sacred as their own works. What’s to stop Lin from doing the same?

What is encouraging is what Machinima had to say on the matter. “Knight Rider is an iconic franchise whose concepts of AI and autonomous vehicles were science fiction in the 1980s and are now science fact,” said CEO Chad Gutstein. “Justin is one of the leading storytellers of his generation and we couldn’t be more excited to work with him on re-invigorating Knight Rider for a new generation of fans.”

Sadly we still have awhile to wait before we’ll hear much more on the subject. Is it truly time for a Knight Rider digital series?
