Universal’s Kojak is definitely coming, and it looks that Vin Diesel is more than ready to say who loves ya baby? Imagine that! But wait, another great news about the whole thing is that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the duo behind the Skyfall story (& the previous four Bond films), is also on board! To provide the screenplay, of course.
So, according to Deadline, Purvis and Wade are hired to write the script for Kojak, or if you prefer: to re-imagine and contemporize it for the big screen.
As you already know, we’re talking about the television series which aired from 1973 -1978, on CBS. Kojak starred Telly Savalas as the title character – a dark, cynical (and bald) NYPD Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak.
Kojak has never before been brought to the big screen, so here’s the perfect chance for Universal and Diesel, who is also set to produce »
