Another Knight Rider movie in the works

The Hoff has been trying to get a movie version of Knight Rider off the ground for years, but now the show’s creator, Glen A Larson, seems to have beaten him to the punch. There have already been two Knight Rider revivals – Knight Rider 2000 and Knight Rider 2010 – both of which were quite bad, but third time lucky, perhaps?

Personally, I’m holding out for an Airwolf movie, but will it really be the same?

An American’s week at London theatres

It’s always interesting to get an outsider’s perspective on things you take for granted, so I’m going to be sticking with June Thomas’s guide to London theatre on Slate for the rest of the week. Day one takes in My Name is Rachel Corrie, which is directed by Alan Rickman – I’ve already discussed the controversy around this particular play – as well as the Theatre Museum and, of course, the changing of the guard.

BBC Four: Now comes with a bottle of Night Nurse aka A for Andromeda’s ‘Face of the Tiger’

Having trouble getting to sleep on a Saturday night? Well happy happy joy joy, this Saturday coming sees not only a repeat of the stupefyingly dull remake of A for Andromeda, there’s now the glorious chance to watch the only remaining episode of the original series, The Face of the Tiger, at the reassuringly late time of 10.40pm. Now, remember that the oh-so-dull remake clocked in at only 90 minutes. This is episode six and runs at 40 minutes. Oh my. Can’t wait.


A third one?!

Rush Hour US posterOf all the things the world needs right now, I didn’t realise that Rush Hour 3 was one of them. It’s not like the first two were marvels of film making.

Even more surprising is the fact that Chris Rock is getting paid about $10 million more basic salary than Jackie Chan, although Chan has the Far East distribution rights. That makes sense. Because we all watched Rush Hour because of Chris Rock, didn’t we?

UPDATE: Oops. Meant Chris Tucker, not Chris Rock. Doh!
