NBC is gearing up for a new two-hour Knight Rider pilot to be directed by The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman. According to Variety, this new spin on an old classic will be heavily influenced by the "Transformers" movie.

The telefilm is scheduled to air later this season. If the TV movie is a hit, a series will follow shortly afterward. It could be on the air as early as next fall. Dave Andron is currently writing the screenplay, which will see the car shifting into different shapes and fighting off other evil shape-shifting cars.

NBC is currently looking for an automaker to serve as the exclusive auto brand for the new K.I.T.T. car. There is currently no word on whether David Hasselhoff will be guest starring on the project.
