The former NBA star purchased the rights to “Soul Train,” and is now ready to make it happen with a Don Cornelius biopic.
“We’re talking about a movie of Don Cornelius, a movie of his life,” Johnson shared as a guest on “The Wendy Williams Show” Wednesday. “He did a wonderful job of introducing us all to “Soul Train.”
Although he was skimpy on the details regarding a possible biopic, he did mention that a return of “Soul Train” could definitely be beneficial for pop culture today.
“Can we bring it back to TV ? Because most of us, or our parents, learned how to dance from watching “Soul Train,” said Johnson. “It’s a great brand.”
