Are you ready for Soul Train The Movie...?
Variety reports the longest-running syndicated TV program will be the focus of a forthcoming movie.
Screenwriter Malcolm Spellman (Dead Presidents) will write it--while series host and producer--the venerable Don Cornelius will also produce the pic.
The show ran from 1971-2006.
Spellman is planning to set the film in the 1980's And it will follow a "body popper" who sees his ticket out of the ghetto in a planned Soul Train tour around the country.
Since the series spanned over 3 decades--I'm sure that both historical, and or biographical info about its evolution will be included.
"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," said Spellman.
I'm glad that Cornelius--called the "godfather of cool" by Spellman is gonna be there to see this one through at least...
