Scott Brothers To Make A-team Movie

Filmmaker brothers RIDLEY and TONY SCOTT are teaming up to take hit TV show THE A-TEAM to the big screen. The long-rumoured big screen adaptation will hit movie theatres in 2010, produced by the British duo and directed by Joe Carnahan.
The project was thrown into disarray in October (08) when John Singleton quit the project.
But Carnahan is determined to breathe new life into the movie, about four Vietnam veterans who are wrongly convicted of armed robbery and escape military prison to become mercenary 'do-gooders'.
The Smokin' Aces director reveals his vision to Daily Variety: "This was a coveted property, and re-imagining a show that I remembered as a kid was tough to turn down.
"Fox (Studios) hired me to make it as emotional, real and accessible as possible without cheesing it up.
"You can make a film that reflects on the real world without losing the sense of fun, and the velocity of action in a classic summer popcorn film. Having Ridley and Tony on board lends considerable weight to that and classes up the whole project."
