John Travolta has blessed Ice Cube‘s planned remake of Welcome Back Kotter, the TV series that launched Travolta’s career. Cube’s plan to update the series in a movie with current racial dynamics sounds like a plan to the original Barbarino.
“I can’t wait to see it,” said Travolta. “I think that’ll be fun. I think it’s a good idea and I think it’s so much smarter that he does it with another perspective than what we did so it’s new.”
Of course it would be a major coup to get Travolta in there as a cameo, but he’s not so sure about that. “I don’t know. I’ve been approached on it but I’d have to see what it was and how it was and what the real thing was.”
