Universal Picture’s Kojak got a Life of Pie director Ang Lee. Vin Diesel will be playing Kojak the master detective.
“Kojak… New York… Ang Lee…” Diesel posted to his Facebook wall moments ago in response to a fan’s question about what director he’d like to work with in the future.
It can be just the dream the of Vin Diesel that Ang Lee direct the movie but we like his choice of Director for the movie.
Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are providing the screenplay to the television series adaptation. The original show, which ran on CBS from 1973 to 1978, starred Telly Savalas as NYPD Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak, known for his penchant for lollipops and his catchphrase, “Who loves ya baby?”
