Vin Diesel wants Hulk helmer to direct Kojak


Vin Diesel, an actor not unfamiliar with the marketing benefits of Facebook, has used his fan page to announce who he’d like to direct him in the forthcoming film adaptation of the series “Kojak”.

According to a post, the “Fast & Furious” star is hoping “Hulk” and “Life of Pi” director Ang Lee agrees to shoot the big-screen do-over of the Telly Savalas classic.

It’s unlikely Diesel has Lee set, but is just throwing out names to appease a fan, but one can assume Lee will end up booking a meeting with the actor/producer.

In the movie, based on the classic TV show, Diesel plays bald New York City Police Department Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak.
