Bring out the Welcome wagon.

Ice Cube has signed on to play the title role in a film adaptation of the classic 1970s TV series Welcome Back, Kotter, it was announced Tuesday.


As part of his deal with Dimension Films, Cube will also coproduce the redo of the former ABC series that turned John Travolta into a household name.

"There was no bigger fan of the original show than me, and I'm very excited to be able to put a new twist on it," the Barbershop star said in a statement.

Cube will play the titular Gabe Kotter, a slacker turned teacher who returns to his inner-city alma mater and who sees himself in the new batch of underprivileged troublemakers. He works to inspire the seemingly apathetic students, known as the Sweathogs.



Nice to see that the Entertainment Industry is as ground breaking and orginal as ever. Hey this show could be great but what's with the lack of creativity and brain drain? Out with the old in with the new.

Hmmm. Interesting.

The only thing I ever really liked about that show, was the theme song!

Not trying to be a spoil sport or a hater but this project is not a good idea. Didn't they learn anything from the success(or failure) of the Honeymooners?
