Vin Diesel Wants Ang Lee To Direct Him In Kojak

kojak Vin Diesel is one giant social media troll. He got fans all in a tizzy over whether or not he would be Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy based on a dubious Facebook posting (I believe we still don’t have an official answer, but the general consensus is yes, yes he will), and now he seems to be doing it again.

Responding to a fan regarding which director he would like to work with, Diesel answered via Facebook:

Kojak… New York…

Ang Lee…

So what’s he up to now? Is Ang Lee actually a possibility to direct Diesel in the remake of the 1970s detective series first announced a year ago? Is he simply answering a question truthfully? Or is he hoping to woo Lee with a bit of Facebook peer pressure?

I would guess probably a combination of the latter two possibilities, though Lee is certainly one director whose moves can’t be pinned down, so I don’t think we should be surprised if this actually ends up happening.
