Vin Diesel To Be Kojak

Pacifier gets lollipop

With TV shows continuing to provide fodder for a Hollywood that remains risk averse, it was just a matter of time before someone decided it was time to update Kojak.

If you need a new Theo Kojak, you need a baldy- a pate that shines atop a man who can do justice to the tough, uncompromising New York cop who patrolled the streets of CBS primetime between 1973 and 1978. Step forward, Vin Diesel.

Bond writing team Neal Purvis and Robert Wade will script the film which doesn't yet have a release date.
