Any news on the upcoming A-team movie??
rumor is that merdocks part should get jim carey
NBC (ended 1987)
|That's a horrible idea. Clooney will almost certaintly bring politics into the film, and "The A-Team" was never about politics. It was always a family show.|
|If the movie is made, I'm sure there will be enough loyal fans who will go and see it, despite the way it turns out. They did a pretty good job with Charlie's Angels and Miami Vice wasn't too bad.|
i hate to say it but those movies sucked and they had the nerve to make 2 charlie's angels i wasn't too thrilled about miami vice either, the remake flood gates have officially been opened. i'd rather watch these shows in reruns or buy/rent the dvd's.
Personally, I think that if there is a movie then it shouldn't be an adaptation of the original series, but rather a continuation. After all, they got gypped in the way of a series finale.
My idea for a plot outline would be something like this:
Three years after the last episode, the guys performed one final mission, smuggling important documents out of the Soviet Union that could ultimately end the Cold War. But as they were escaping, they were discovered by the KGB and while Face, Murdock, and B.A. managed to escape, Hannibal got caught in the crossfire and was killed (this would account for George Peppard's death).
At the same time that this was taking place, Vice President Bush had just been inaugurated as President and with the new position came the knowledge that the A-Team had been working for them for the last 5 years. After the team got back, Bush felt that without Hannibal they were no longer of any use to them. So he gave the surviving members the pardon that they had been promised by Reagan. Now free to live their lives, the members of the team went their separate ways.
20 years later. The situation in the Middle East has grown much worse. A top Al Quaeda lieutenant has escaped from the military in Afghanistan and he is believed to have nuclear capabilities. It looks as though the U.S. is in grave danger, and the remaining members of the A-Team are the only ones who can save us from total destruction.
I don't know, I think that it would be kind of interesting to see a cast reunion instead of a remake.
According to Wikipedia, the movie is officially scheduled for release in summer of 2008, with Stephen J Cannel & Frank Lupo writing it along with Bruce Feirstein. The movie will supposedly carry the same plot of the show as wrongly accused soldiers of fortune but most likely from the first Gulf War. And the original cast will appear but only in cameo roles. So I guess all of the general rumors have been true. It's unclear however weather it'll be released by Fox or by Warner Brothers, but it definitely wont be Universal. No matter what, it'll be a tough year for it because it'll be up agaist movies like Indiana Jones IV and Rambo IV, and the next Batman movie.
I'm not suggesting parts for one second but am I the only one who thinks that Michael Weatherly (DiNozzo from NCIS) looks a helluva lot like a young Peppard? Just a thought!!!
Not sold on a A-Team movie or even a remake of the series but would definitely watch it either way.
|Well NOW according to Wikipedia, the movie's been pushed back yet AGAIN and is scheduled for a June 2009 release! And yet there are still no definate actors casted for the roles! Just rumors. John Singleton is however set to do the directing.("Boyz n the Hood," "Shaft," "2 Fast 2 Furious") At this point I think people wont care how good or bad it is, as long as it actually comes out. It's been nearly ten years now and we're tired as hell of waiting. The boys could have refought the whole damn Vietnam War in the amount of time it's taken them to get this thing out!|
