Scribes revving up ‘Knight Rider’ pic

Hasselhoff to exec produce; Elliott, Lovett to pen script

The wheels are in motion on Revolution Studios’ bigscreen adaptation of the 1980s TV show “Knight Rider.”

The studio has hired tyro scribes David Elliott and Paul Lovett to pen the script for the pic, which is being planned as an action comedy.

TV series ran on NBC from 1982 to 1986, revolving around Michael Knight and his talking car K.I.T.T., a sleek black Pontiac Trans Am, as they fight crime.

Elliott and Lovett are also writing Revolution’s comedy “Neighborhood Watch.”

ICM brought “Knight Rider” to Revolution partner Tom Sherak. It will be overseen by studio development exec Navid McIlhargey.

“Knight Rider’s” original star David Hasselhoff will executive produce the pic, while Disney-based Mayhem Pictures’ Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray will produce with Glen A. Larson, who created the “Knight Rider” TV show.

Ciardi and Grey produced Revolution’s comedy “The New Guy” and Disney’s “The Rookie.”

Elliott and Lovett are repped by CAA and manager Jim Burke.
