Get Ready to Board "Soul Train" the Movie! 


Remember the classic TV show "Soul Train?" Well, Warner Bros. has just hired Malcolm Spellman to write a big screen adaptation!

Don Cornelius, the host and producer of the TV show, will co-produce along with Darryl Porter and Aaron Geller of Porter/Geller Productions.

Spellman's take on the project? He's writing a film set in the 1980s!

He tells Variety:

"All of the hip-hop street dances you see today were born during that time period and were first seen on that show, and I remember doing all of them when I was a kid."

Wow, the big screen version of "Soul Train" sounds like "Breakin'" and "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo!"

According to Spellman, the plot revolves around our hero who comes from the L.A. hood, and his dancing prowess (he's good at "popping") will be his ticket out of the ghetto and into the spotlight.

Spellman further says, "This guy is a serious popper, with street edge, and he wants to get on that tour, with the hottest of the hot."

"Writing with Don involved is quite an experience. He's still the godfather of cool."

That's cool, but I told y'all, the plot sounds like "Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo." :happy
