REPORT: Liam Neeson To Play "Hannibal" Smith In "A-Team" Movie

Yes! The A-Team movie's coming and thanks to the possible casting addition of Liam Neeson as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, it should be less campy. We love it when a plan comes together!

The Ridley Scott-produced A-Team film is supposed to begin initial shooting in August and if all goes well, Liam Nesson will star alongside Bradley Cooper, who is also in early contractual talks to play Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck. Still yet to be cast are the roles for both Capt. "Howling Mad" Murdock and Sgt. "B.A." Baracus. As awesome as it would be, don't expect to see Mr. T make a return appearance.

The script will follow the original TV show premise of four war veterans wrongly convicted turned mercenaries for hire. Written by Skip Woods, of G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra and Wolverine, directed by Joe Carnahan and distributed by 20th Century Fox, the A-Team will make a planned 80's comeback on June 11, 2010. No word yet on if the famous A-Team van will make a return, but either way, we can't wait. [via Variety]
