Val Kilmer Joins ‘Knight Rider’ Film

From Variety.com
Ever wonder which finely tuned machine would win in a battle between a GMC Truck and a Ford Mustang? Me neither, but today, we got our answer! It looks like a clash of twisted metal went down between General Motors and NBC’s new revival of Knight Rider. Originally slated to be the voice of KITT in the upcoming TV movie, Will Arnett, ran into a contractual conflict of interest since, for nearly a decade, he'd been doing voice-over work for GM as the voice of the GMC Truck. But KITT is a Ford Mustang! So former Dark Knight Val Kilmer will join Knight Rider, and his voice will replace Arnett's in the film.

"I was very excited at the prospect of playing the part of KITT in the new 'Knight Rider' movie," Arnett said. "However, because of a long relationship with General Motors as the voice of GMC Trucks, I had to respectfully withdraw from the project."
