If you've a question about cult TV hit "The X-Files", this is the girl to direct your query to. Sandi, based in Australia, knows everything there is to know about Chris Carter's popular '90s series starring David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and E.T. Sandi is also - besides being a lot of fun - a big fan of films and television in general, and knows her way around a computer system. To say she was a perfect fit for Moviehole is an understatement.

There’s been talk of a “Knight Rider” movie for years – and not just talk of a small-screen reunion telemovie (there’s actually already been a couple of those; remember “Knight Rider 2000″?), but a full-blown big-screen film version of the ’80s series. But despite all the earlier talk, the project went quiet after the failure of the small-screen reboot in 2008.

David Hasselhoff, who played Michael Knight in both the original and recent small-screen reboot, says Harvey and Bob Weinstein still plan to do something with the “Knight Rider” brand and he’s hoping to get in on it.

‘The Hoff’, as he’s affectionately nicknamed is off to London to prep “Baywatch : The Musical” (we kid you not) but hopefully when he returns to the states he can convince the Weinstein Company, who currently own the rights to the old series, to get moving on “Knight Rider : The Movie”. And I think you’ll all agree ‘The Hoff’ needs to be part of that – – at least a small part of that.

For more on The Hoff’s appearance at SupaNova this weekend, check out my report here.
