Ice Cube - to remake Kotter

Ice Cube

Ice Cube recently let slip that he is working on a big-screen update of the classic TV show "Welcome Back Kotter".

"It needs a little work, so we're going to see. I don't know if that's going to be my next movie or not." Cube said.

"I always looked at the series as when it came out at the time, it wasn't as sit-commy as it may feel," Cube said. "It was a little hard-edged for the time; you dealt with kids who some of them were skipping school and all of this kind of stuff that you didn't really see. They would talk about real-life stuff, so I thought it was true to what the nature of the series is to do the same thing -- to make it more of a dramatic feel, and not make it so: 'Up your nose with a rubber hose.'"

When told that John Travolta offered his blessing for the update, Cube said that he hopes Travolta will make an appearance in the Kotter film.

"Yeah, I would love for him to do a cameo," he said. "I would love for all of the guys to do a little cameo here and there, but we'll see. It's funny to try to take a movie that's like an icon and flip it the way we are, but I think we've got a good story."

Ice Cube also spoke out regarding the rumors circulating that Chris Tucker might return for a proposed fourth installment in the Friday series. "I would love for him to," Cube said. "We've talked about it, but that's about as much as he wants me to say."

bjon86 / Eh I loved the original Friday but prtety much refused to watch the other because Chris Tucker wasn't in it and I hate when characters are replaced by lesser talent (actually I just hate when characters are replaced period). But now that they are doing another one with Tucker eh I don't really care. Tucker screwed up BIG time when he didn't do the other Friday movies. I love the dude but his whole career just shows how greedy and stupid he is. He should've done every single Friday sequel he could get his hands on and he shouldn't have waited 30 years to do a third Rush Hour. What a disappointment. His comedy was only funny when he was younger because nobody wants to see a grown man act well like Chris Tucker.
