#TBT: A TV Remake of The A-Team is Happening.
We just can’t get enough of reboots, remakes or throwbacks. With the Full House Reunion, Heroes Reboot and who knows what else, its hardly surprising that the best thing to come out of the 80’s is going to be revamped for the 21st century. Enter, the TV remake of The A-Team.
And with Furious 7 writer Chris Morgan, Nikita producer Albert Kim and A-Team co-creator Stephen J Cannell’s daughter Tawnia McKiernan on board, the 20th Century Fox TV reboot looks set to be better than ever.
According to reports, the new version of The A-Team will maintain the original premise of a Special Forces squad determined to clear their names after being framed for a horrific crime; however, unlike the original, the new A-Team will be a mix of both male and female members – although it’s not clear if any classic characters will be used.
So, we’re sadly going to have to keep our fingers crossed that John ‘Hannibal’ Smith, ‘Howling Mad’ Murdock, B.A Baracus and Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck make a comeback in some form – even if its without Mr T.
The rest of the iconic cast of the original included George Peppard, Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz, while the 2010 feature film of the same name featured Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Sharlto Copley taking on the iconic characters from the ’80s show.
It sadly, did not do the series enough justice to require a sequel. But fingers crossed Fox do the reboot justice, and we could be getting a new and improved The A-Team very soon! Stay tuned, gang.
