Vin Diesel loves his fans, and he has no hesitation about teasing them regarding future projects. His relentless self-promotion is kind of grating if you’re not a Diesel devotee, but hustling is part of Hollywood. He’s supposedly voicing Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, and has talked about “merging brands” with Marvel (whatever the hell that means). Diesel may be content to be part of ensemble films, but since the most successful thing about Riddick is that it got made, he could be looking for another solo franchise.
About a year ago, Diesel signed on to play the lead in a film adaptation of the TV show Kojak. The series ran from 1973-1978, and starred Telly Savalas as New York City Police Department Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak. The tough but good-hearted cop was a colorful character and returned to TV in 2005 as a short-lived series starting Ving Rhames. So what are Diesel’s thoughts on the film adaptation? When asked by a fan on Facebook “what director would you like to work soon?” he replied, “Kojak… New York… Ang Lee…” Hit the jump for more.
