Vin Diesel is going to star in a movie based on the ’70s cop show “Kojak”.
The original aired on CBS from 1973 to 1978, and starred Jennifer Aniston’s godfather Telly Savalas.
In the mid-’80s, Telly came back to do seven “Kojak” TV movies and in 2005, the USA Network tried to launch a new version starring Ving Rhames and Chazz Palminteri, but it only lasted nine episodes.
All we know about the movie is that it will be a “modern-day adaptation.”
This won’t be the first update of Kojak released into the world. Back in 2005, USA aired the one and only season of a version starring Ving Rhames. He brought back his predecessor’s catch phrase, “Who loves ya, baby?” but it was to no avail as the series only ran for nine episodes.
