During our exclusive interview for the horror flick, the "Baywatch" icon kept dropping hints about a yet-to-be-announced remake he's hoping to star in: one of the 1939 classic, "Gone With the Wind."
Hasselhoff began our chat expressing that his manager was less than pleased with him for taking the gig in the campy horror film. "He wants me to do a 'Knight Rider' film or Nick Fury, which I was supposed to do, or a remake of 'Gone With the Wind,'" he explained.
Later, after a laundry list of all the "beautiful" women in his life (his daughters, his girlfriend), he shared, "Hopefully the 'Gone With the Wind' will come, hopefully something great will happen."
Needless to say, we had to ask who he might like to see as the Scarlett O'Hara to his Rhett Butler.
"I think that actress, Rachel Rice …"
We intervened, "Do you mean [Oscar winner] Rachel Weisz, from 'The Constant Gardener?'"
"Oh, yeah. Oof! I think she's hot," he offered.
Perhaps The Hoff is on to something. It's been 73 years – maybe it is time for a "Gone With the Wind" remake. Inspired, we asked our friend Old Red Jalopy to give us a glimpse into what such a film, starring Hasselhoff and Weisz, might look like. Would you see this movie ... or any remake of the classic film, for that matter?
(Editor's Note: In fact, there is a little-known British television actress named Rachel Rice. The Hoff probably thinks she's also hot.)
