Soul Train The Movie?

According to Reuters, Iconic host Don Cornelius has linked up with Warner Brothers to create the comedy, which follows two male dancers as they get into "a lot of good stuff and some bad stuff as well."Along with Darryl Porter, the executive producer of the Hughes brothers' 1995 flick, Dead Presidents, Cornelius will produce Soul Train: The Movie.

The film, which is still in the writing phase with newbie script writer J. Gil Williams turning in the first draft next month, does not have a cast or a director attached as of yet.Cornelius promised that Soul Train: The Movie will feature "lots of music, lots of comedy and a little bit of violence."And of course, lots of sexuality."'Soul Train' has always been about sexuality," Cornelius said. "It's almost never been about guys, and almost always about girls. It's what has kept us afloat for these three decades or so.""Soul Train" was the longest-running show airing in first-run syndication, launching nationally in 1971.

The program recently ended its run in 2006 but during its day, helped catapult some of the biggest stars in R&B.Soul Train: The Movie is scheduled to roll into theatres next year.
