Weinsteins steer ‘Rider’

The Weinstein Co. is steering an adaptation of the ’80s TV series “Knight Rider” toward the bigscreen.

Indie banner has sealed a deal to acquire rights to the show from creator Glen A. Larson, who also was behind such titles as “Magnum, P.I.” and “The Fall Guy.” “Knight” follows a cop who’s been left to die and is nursed back to health by a mysterious millionaire. The moneyman also gives the cop a new face; a new name, Michael Knight; and crime-fighting gadgetry, including KITT, the car with artificial intelligence. Original show ran on NBC from 1982-86 and starred David Hasselhoff as Knight.
