Movie: The A-Team
When: Opening Friday at local theaters
Cast: Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Sharlto Copley, Quinton Rampage Jackson, Patrick Wilson
Director: Joe Carnahan
The story: Framed for a crime they didnt commit, Iraq war veterans try to clear their names while fighting on as soldiers of fortune.
The buzz: If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team. That motto still applies as the 80s TV staple hits the big screen, with Neeson taking charge as commander John Hannibal Smith, Cooper as Templeton Faceman Peck, District 9s Copley as Howling Mad Murdock and Quinton Rampage Jackson as B.A. Baracus. Sadly, George Peppard (the original Hannibal) died in 1994, so he isnt around to make a cameo appearance, and Mr. T (the original B.A.) has reportedly nixed a cameo. But look for Dirk Benedict (TVs Faceman) and Dwight Schultz (the original Howling Mad) to turn up; theyre listed in the updates cast.
