Ice Cube To Star In Welcome Back Kotter

Ice Cube recently inked a deal with Dimension Films to turn 1970's TV sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter" into a feature film for the big-screen.

According to Variety, the rapper has signed on to star in and produce for "Kotter," which is expected to begin filming this fall with Tom Brady ("The Hot Chick," "The Animal"), who is in final negotiations to direct and write the script.

Cube will be playing the role of Kotter, the inner-city high school teacher who encounters a group of young, likeable troublemakers.

In the original TV series, Mr. Kotter was played by Gabe Kaplan, and ran from 1975-'79, helping launch the career of a young John Travolta, who played the character "Vinnie Barbarino."

In addition, Ice Cube recently held two listening parties in New York and Los Angeles for his forthcoming album, Laugh Now, Cry Later.

During the parties, Cube introduced a 20-track offering, which featured guest spots by Snoop Dogg, Lil' Jon, WC and Kokane, while production credits include DJ Green Lantern, Scott Storch, Lil' Jon, Swizz Beats and Emile, among others.

The Scott Storch produced "Why We Thugs" will serve as the album's first official single, while the buzz single and video for "Chrome & Paint" has the streets already talking.

Laugh Now, Cry Later is slated for a June 6 release.
