By MICHAEL FLEMING

Warner Bros. has hired Malcolm Spellman to write a feature based on the classic TV show “Soul Train.”

Darryl Porter and Aaron Geller of Porter/Geller Prods. 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.

I sure wish this was going to be set in the 1970s … but I’ll take what I can get 😉
