Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper to Join A-Team

Yes, A-Team is being turned into a movie. But before you get too upset, you may be pleasantly surprised to hear that a couple big name actors are in talks to join the cast.

Variety reports that Bradley Cooper may star as Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck, and that Liam Neeson is in talks to take on the role of Col. John “Hannibal” Smith.

The long awaited adaptation of the 80s action series has been in the works for some time now, and with these two on board, we could feel confident in it becoming a blockbuster.

Faceman is the role originally played by Dirk Benedict, while Hannibal was played by George Peppard. The script will stay true to its original—about a fictional group of ex-U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers who are on the run from the military for a crime they allegedly never committed. The roles of "Howling Mad" Murdock and "B.A." Baracus are yet to be cast. Original writer Stephen Cannell is on board for the script, with Ridley Scott producing.

We’re kind of excited about this particular remake! How bout you?
