Cube Takes on Kotter
Posted 03.26.07 by reelz
At this weekend's press day for his new flick Are We Done Yet, Ice Cube talked about one of his upcoming projects:
"I'm gonna do a version of Welcome Back, Kotter. We're taking the name, we're taking the concept of the 'sweathogs' and a bunch of kids nobody wants to teach and seeing them for their intelligence and things they do have to offer. We're taking that kind of feel and tailor-making it for me," said Cube, who described the project as a "dramedy. If you look at Welcome Back, Kotter, it was a lot of real social commentary in with the jokes. So we gonna do that too."
The entire world wide web waits with giddy anticipation for casting news regarding the highly coveted role of Vinnie Barbarino. We'll keep you posted.
