Purvis and Wade set to "reimagine" Kojak for the big screen.

http://www.deadline.com/2012/12/universal-sets-skyfall-scribes-purvis-wade-to-script-kojak-for-vin-diesel/

The series, which ran from 1973-78, was a popular procedural with an iconic cop, and the scribes will re-imagine and contemporize it for the big screen. Purvis & Wade are coming off Skyfall, which is nearing $1 billion in worldwide box office, and they wrote the previous four Bond films, including Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Die Another Day. CAA and Brillstein rep Diesel, while UTA reps the scribes. Universal co-president of production Jeffrey Kirschenbaum and production veep Kristin Lowe are overseeing it for the studio.

Re-imagine and contemporize? Kojak as a half black, half Arab, transgendered lesbian who has a strip of sushi dangling from her teeth rather than a toothpick. TyKojak will not, of course, carry a gun, but instead intimidate her foes (fracking surveyors and gun collectors) with a pink strap-on.

Are they writing it for Craig or for Chris Pine? These guys seem to have dibs on all franchises.

They are being credited for SF and yes their names do get official credit, but it seems we Bond fans routinely associate Logan with SF and Haggis with QoS and CR.

If I've got this right names like Haggis and Logan have been finishing and finalizing these scripts?

I don't really connect P&W with the re-boot films. Am I wrong?

P&W have been involved in the reboots, but I sure can't say how much. All I can say is that the dialogue in SF is bloody marvelous. Utterly cool without being contrived. If P&W wrought that dialogue, they certainly upped their game, and fedoras off to them for doing so.

P&W were absolutely behind the reboot (including booting Brosnan) and they were very proud that their draft included "the bitch is dead" as their last line. Remember that much from the old boards elsewhere ...

I don't think dialog is their thing, they are there to apply the structure and generic bond knowledge. If you want credit for the dialog, I think that is definitely Haggis on CR and Logan on SF -- even though I consider the dialog in both cases to be utter discredits.

My congratulations then, because they deserved a prize for that line.

Trying to think of a blackcurrant lollipop manufacturer who could benefit from the marketing tie-in here.

Undeniably. CR alternates between dialogue sounding like being written by adolescents trying to sound smart, a lot of poor on-the-nose lines and teenage drama trash in there, and horribly penned, wholly unnatural screwball stuff.
Having seen SF only once, all I can say is that a lot of its dialogue felt VERY contrived too. (But the major problem remains the ridiculously incredible and highly derivative plot).

On the whole, I thought CR's dialogue was good, but it was blighted by some really dreadful stuff. The "little finger" and "you've stripped it from me" was particularly egregious. I can also see why some do not like the Vesper/Bond train dialogue.

SF's dialogue, on the other hand, is almost totally spot-on. Two or three of Bond's one-liners fell a bit flat, but otherwise, aces.

Can you throw me a few of the one-liners in SF? I honestly don't remember anything except the alleged quip in the 'gay' scene.

Got the First Season of Kojak on DVD - so this is interesting news. Much more of a Columbo fan, though!

"I got into some deep water" is the first that springs to mind, but there were definitely a few others. I'll try to remember them.

On the loss of the Land Rover's wing mirror in the pre-credit sequence chase - 'It's all right, we weren't using it'.

'Just changing carriages' later in the same sequence.

'Health and Safety, carry on' to the incredulous member of London Underground staff who eventually lets him onto the tube train after the (also chucklesome, IMHO) 'Open the door ... OPEN. THE. DOOR'.

There is also 'the circle of life' as Bond leaves the casino. To be honest though, I don't get that one... :oops:

"It's alright, you weren't using that one" Bond - Eve in the car (can that qualify?)

Yes, the circle of life statement is rather elusive. I know it was an Elton John tune from The Li'l Mermaid or some such, but what the hell that has to do with putting a pile of blood money on red in a Macau casino is beyond me.

Don't worry about it. Just know, that's it's no doubt quite clever. We're talking SF here :shock:, not just any ole Rog or Broz film. :tongue:

It's The Lion King, but yeah, the quip has gone over my head.

Maybe we need to get Tom M. on the phone, dig him up. He's the 'alimentary' guy (and he also punched up dialog for TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING, a fact that I discovered 35 years too late, hence my stealing a line that was probably his to intro my reply.)

I have to say that I don't remember ANY of these except the mirror line, not that I thought it was funny. Then again, "salt corrosion" is the last one-liner I ever laughed at in a Bond movie, so I'm 25 years past due.

More the latter than the former.
