That short-lived revival of the Kojak TV show in 2005 with Ving Rhames as the title character lasted only nine episodes, but that doesn't mean there won't be any new attempts to capitalize on the popular '70s TV series. Speaking of which, Deadline has learned that a big screen adaptation is in the works at Universal, with Vin Diesel attached to star as NYPD Lieutenant Theo Kojak.
