‘Soul Train’ Becoming a Movie?


Oh, nice! They've remade so many old TV shows into movies (Get Smart, Dukes of Hazzard, Alvin and the Chipmunks), why not make one of Soul Train? You know, that dance show hosted by Don Cornelius? Yeah. Variety says that Warner Bros. expects to cash in on this, penning Malcolm Spellman to write the screenplay. I don't know how audiences will react to this. Land of the Lost in June, also based on an old television program, bombed and left room for the totally original The Hangover to stay number one at the box office two weeks in a row. Of course I know nothing of the Soul Train show since it was way before my time; however I know a dumb idea when I see one. Remaking this would be like doing a movie about American Idol or America's Got Talent: how? I guess that's what I'd like to know. Spellman wrote a Sopranos video game and is currently scribing a sequel to Johnson Family Vacation (sweet Jesus, no) and the Soul Train movie isn't a good place to start in the Hollywood business if you want to be respected. But money-wise, business is booming.
