The A-Team set for big screen makeover

Classic 80s show the A-Team is the latest TV hit set for a big screen makeover. Plans have been announced for a film version of the Saturday afternoon classic twenty-three years after the show ended.

Legendary British director Ridley Scott and American director Joe Carnahan have both been confirmed for the project, but it's not clear if the director of Alien and Bladerunner will be behind the camera or not.

While the original A-Team was based on four Vietnam veterans who had been famously framed for a crime they didn't commit, the new A-Team is going to be set in the context of the Gulf War. Speculation is already mounting as to who will play Hannibal, B.A., Murdock and Face with Bruce Willis and Ice Cube both being mentioned to takeover the roles originally played by George Peppard and Mr T.
