Is Ang Lee directing a Kojak movie?

November 26th, 2013 by bash Comments

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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
