The cast of The A-Team

After much discussion from fans on who should replace the original line-up and whether a remake should be made at all, The A-Team movie appears to be well and truly on... and here's the very first official cast photo to prove it.
The cast of The A-Team

After much discussion from fans on who should replace the original line-up and whether a remake should be made at all, The A-Team movie appears to be well and truly on... and here's the very first official cast photo to prove it.

The new crack team include BA Baracus (now played by UFC fighter Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson), Faceman, (played by Hangover star Bradley Cooper), Murdock (played by South African actor Sharlto Copey) while Liam Neeson will be in charge as Col. John 'Hannibal' Smith. The fab four are also joined by Jessica Biel who plays an army general in hot pursuit (we're guessing she'll be a sexy army general too).

As for the story, well, this modern A-Team are now a group of hardened Iraq War veterans trying to clear their name from a crime they didn't commit. And sneaky early shots from filming in Vancouver, Canada, would suggest that this will be as action packed as the TV show with the classic GMC van being spotted in some scenes.

As for the picture, well, we have a few quibbles. Rampage Jackson is not wearing nearly enough gold chains, Murdock's hat looks a bit too new and Liam Neeson appears to have benefited from some Photoshop trickery. Oh, and the Hummer behind them looks like it's having engine trouble. But besides all that, we're getting pretty excited.

Let's just hope that they can take heed from the man in the video below. I pity the fool if they don't...

The A-Team arrives in cinemas from 30 July 2010
