Are Michael Knight and his talking car KITT headed to the big screen?

"I'm honored and humbled to have been the Knight Rider," the actor told Billy Bush when asked about the TV series, which ran from 1982 to 1986.

"Hopefully we'll bring it back. It's at the Weinstein Company in development as a movie," he said.

David explained that the process has been time consuming and slow going.

"Making a movie is like watching the grass grow... They always want to change it," he continued.

But will the 60-year-old actor be the lead in the movie version or will the Knight Rider torch be passed to a younger generation?

"We're hoping that when it comes on the big screen, it pays homage to where Michael Knight came from and where KITT came from," he said. "Michael Knight would have a son, I would play like the older guy, do like 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.'"

The actor even has some possible dialogue in mind for himself and the actor playing his son.

"I could say, 'I can't run, I can't jump, I can't fight, but I can still drive. Get in!'" he added with a laugh.
