The A-Team is getting remade for another run on TV

09.24.2015

Joe Carnahan gave it his best shot at resurrecting THE A-TEAM brand as a feature film, but audiences didn't bite (Too bad... a highly underrated action flick). 20th Century Fox Television is willing to bet that things might be different if they bring the brand back to TV, as they set out to remake THE A-TEAM for another run as a series. 

Produced by Chris Morgan, who is otherwise producing and penning the FAST & FURIOUS films, and Tawnia McKiernan, daughter of the original series' creator Stephen J. Cannell, the new A-TEAM will still follow the concept of a team of Special Forces operatives framed for a crime they didn't commit. In trying to clear their names, they go about helping those in need with their special set of skills as only they can.

This time, the team will be comprised of a more diverse bunch, with both men and women as part of the squad. There is no word on casting this early as to who could fill out the new A-TEAM, but I do hear Mr. T isn't up to much these days, so it is entirely possible he could be the one guy they definitely bring back. After all, what's an A-TEAM without Mr. T?

As long as it will not involve Michelle Rodriguez, Rhonda Rousey, or any other female actress (or athlete) that usually get typecast as the 'action chick'.
Also, I doubt that this will get picked up for a series. Terminated after the first season, at most.

Despite the over the top ending, I very much enjoyed the movie. The unrated version is pretty fantastic. It's a damn shame that it wasn't more successful because I'd love to see those guys again. Rampage Jackson wasn't a very good actor but the rest of the team was so perfect. Could have been one hell of a franchise. Bringing it back to tv makes sense now. TV remakes don't always gain traction (Charlie's Angels, anyone?) but sometimes they very much do (Hawaii 5-0). Depending on who they cast,

I somehow never got around to seeing the movie but even from the trailer I could tell they got the right actors for the characters. Still, if it's the TV avenue they wish to go down, I have no problems with this. Personally, I hope for a more serious A Team...a bit like when they were finally captured and found guilty only for them to be rescued and forced(?) to work with the Man from U.n.c.l.e or something like that. I certainly, liked the revamped A Team tune from that point on :o) And if

Boy Billy, you are the reboot king today, huh? Well, we'll see if it's any good. Or if I have time for it with all the other shows I can't seem to catch up on.

That's the way it looks, doesn't it?

And the concept is good period, so here's to hoping they can just put the right pieces together to make it work.

And yep... way too much stuff on to even be caught up on the things I thought I might want to watch.

Loved the film and am still disappointed that it never got a sequel. I mean the flying tank scene ALONE. Plus everyone was cast perfectly and had great chemistry with one another.

I'd probably watch it if Fillion or Alec Baldwin plays Hannibal.
