"The A-Team": There Is No Plan B

Sneak Peek the new UK poster supporting "The A-Team", the Vancouver-lensed feature based on "The A-Team" TV series.

The 20th Century Fox feature is directed by Joe "Narc" Carnahan, produced by brothers Ridley and Tony Scott, with the updated plot shifting from Vietnam to the Middle East.

Both producer Jules Daly and series creator Stephen J. Cannell are involved in the new film, which, according to co-screenwriter Michael Brandt, is grittier than the TV series and more in the (jugular) vein of "Casino Royale".

Cast includes Liam "Darkman" Neeson as 'Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, Bradley Cooper as 'Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck', Quinton Jackson as 'Sgt. B.A. "Bad Attitude" Baracus', Sharlto Copley as 'Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock', Jessica Biel as 'Lt. Carissa Sosa', Patrick Wilson as 'Lynch' and Gerald McRaney as 'General Morrison'.

Nostalgic cameos in the film include actor Dwight Schultz and Dirk Benedict who were in the original series.
