Kojak Movie

Oh, Vin Diesel. Your legion of gushing fans always swoon whenever you post something on your official Facebook page. The busy actor’s latest contribution to the world of social media suggests that Ang Lee might be the person who directs the upcoming big screen adaptation of “Kojak.” As long as Diesel is sucking on a lollipop, chances are his fan’s won’t care who steps behind the camera for the project. Of course, I could be wrong.

When a curious fan asked the actor which filmmaker he’d love to work with at some point in the not-too-distant future, Diesel offered up the following response. It’s not a confirmation of Lee’s involvement, mind you, but it’s worth mentioning just in case.

“Kojak… New York… Ang Lee,” Diesel posted. You tease!

Although Ving Rhames tried his best to keep the character alive on the small screen back in 2005, that endeavor ultimately crashed and burned. Maybe Vin Diesel and Ang Lee are the guys to bring the bald NYPD detective to the big screen. I’ve definitely got my fingers crossed.

If you haven’t seen an entire episode of the original television series, then feast your eyes on the episode below. There’s even more where that came from. Who loves ya, baby?
