Knight Rider is coming back. Deadline is reporting that the much-loved ’80s TV series—featuring everyone’s favorite talking car—is being revitalized for the big screen.

The director behind Aquaman, James Wan, is developing the film, with writing duties falling to video-game writer and screenwriter TJ Fixman. The movie will apparently be set in the present day, though no further details have been announced.

On the announcement, Fixman—who wrote the video games Ratchet & Clank, Overstrike, and Resistance 2, tweeted: “Knight Rider was one of my favorite shows as a kid, so this feels like I just stepped through a time portal and high-fived my 8-year old self.”

Will David Hasselhoff make a cameo? Will we see the return of the Pontiac Firebird? Will we hear that simply amazing theme tune? Only time will tell.
