Those of you who were arsed to read one of my first posts on the site will remember I put up a story about John Singleton directing the A-Team movie. Well it has now been 100% confirmed by Fox and Ridley Scott, that the director of Alien and Blade Runner will be looking after one of the most popular TV shows of the 80’s.
In an interview with Variety magazine that they plan was to boot a franchise that he hoped would be around for “many years to come”. The film will be modernised, taking the action away from Vietnam and updating it with the Middle East. Scott also wants to dump the “campiness” of the TV show and bring to us a “fast paced” show that is “emotional, real and accessible as possible without cheesing it up.”
Co-creator of the original series Stephen J Cannell is also on board as a producer. Release date is June 2010.
