The New A-Team

Arriving on screens in June is the latest ’80s re-make – The A-Team. I still remember the them song, and of course, “”I pity the fool,” will live on forever. This new incarnation stars Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck, Quinton “Rammpage” Jackson (from UFC) as B.A Baracus, Sharlto Copley as Captain “Howling Mad” Murdock and Liam Neeson as Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith. Mmm..I have my doubts. It’s being directed as we speak by Joe Carnahan, who also created the excellent films Narc and Smokin’ Aces, so maybe he’ll save it. The story centres on the titular veterans from the Iraq war (moved forward from the Vietnam war in the original TV series) who become farmed for a crime and must prove their innocence to the U.S military.
