Vin Diesel has hinted that he could be attempting to persuade Ang Lee to direct his planned Kojak movie.
In a post on Facebook on Tuesday, in response to a fan’s question about what director he’d like to work with in the future, the actor replied: “Kojak… New York… Ang Lee…”.
Diesel has been actively trying to get a big screen remake of the TV lolly pop loving cop in recent times. Could this project be close to pre-production?
Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Skyfall) are providing the screenplay for the adaptation.
The original show, which ran on CBS from 1973 to 1978, starred Telly Savalas (above) as NYPD Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak.
