      I'd be more optimistic about this if they said Hasselhoff was involved. He truly knew the flavor of this series and the human story behind the fancy stunts etc of a AI Car that wants to learn what it is to be human. If they bring that element back into it with the right writers, it has a shot but I'm not sure that format's right for a movie as a TV series fleshes it out more properly IMO.
