brotherlove sent this news. Yeah that's right, a movie adaptation of Welcome Back, Kotter! And who is a better choice to take on the role of Gabe Kaplan's Mr. Kotter than Ice Cube! I guess Vin Diesel had prior commitments.
Although this does allow for the chance to fantasize about Travolta reprising the role of Vinnie Barbarino, and then just have Sam Jackson play Freddie "Boom-Boom" Washington. I can just see him saying the classic "Hi there" and then blowing some dude away. You know with Ice Cube running the class it's going to be ultra-ghetto.
