Soul Train Coming to the Big Screen

ON

Malcolm Spellman (Dead Presidents) will write a Warner Bros. feature based on the classic TV show “Soul Train.”

Darryl Porter and Aaron Geller of Porter/Geller Productions will produce with Don Cornelius, the host and producer of the famed show, which ran from 1971-2006.

Spellman said that he’s writing a film set in the 1980s.

The film centers on a guy who comes from the L.A. hood, and his ticket out is his gift for “popping,” a street dance that became popular in the period.
