Click above to watch the video after the jump

The A-Team was a pop culture phenomenon of the Eighties on par with Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazard. And since Hannibal, B.A., Face and Murdoch hold a special place in the hearts and minds of Gen-Xers, it was only a matter of time before the super-fake action show hit the silver screen. After all, we already saw (unfortunately) the Dukes remake, and our own Alex Nunez liveblogged the sucktastic time waster that was the new (now canceled) Knight Rider series on NBC. All three shows have one thing in common; a bad ass vehicle that serves a different purpose in each show. B.A.'s GMC G-Series, with its red stripe and red turbine mag wheels was the command center for our favorite wrongly sought soldiers of fortune.

The A-Team hits theaters on June 11, 2010 and at the very least, the actors chosen are better than we expected. B.A Baracus will be played by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, and the one and only Liam Neeson will play Hannibal. Bradley Cooper from The Hangover checks in as Face and Sharlto Copely will be the wacky pilot Murdoch. If that isn't enough star power for you, the beautiful Jessica Biel will play the part of Carissa Sosa. Naturally, the iconic GMC van is making a triumphant return to the A-Team, though we're guessing General Motors isn't going to stand for blacking out the GMC lettering from the van's grille like the show's creators did after season one.

We'd love it if this plan came together, though we admit that we're not hopeful. These "turn a TV show into a movie" deals seldom work out the way our inner children hope for. Hit the jump to watch interviews with some of the movie's stars.

      Am I nuts or is the Hannibal character in the picture still George Peppard?

      "B.A Baracus will be played by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson"

      They showed the episode where he ripped down the door on Ultimate Fighter last night after his team lost yet another match.

      "The A-Team was a pop culture phenomenon of the Eighties on par with Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazard."

      Ehh, A-Team is better then those. I loved all those shows as a kid, but now Dukes and Knight Rider are a little hard to watch. However, I can still watch A-Team and enjoy it.

      I hear the video but cannot see it.

      Anyhow, this movie looks _awesome_.

      another remake ? didn't they learn the lesson with the new knight rider ? we are not in the '80s anymore...
        • 5 Years Ago
        The new knight rider was a bad tv series based off of a good old one, this is a big budget movie based off of an old series, so it will have a bigger budget, better special effects, and obviously a much better cast. I'm sure hollywood will find a way to screw it up, but I'm sure it will at least be entertaining and nostalgic.

      I can't wait for the BJ & the Bear movie which has to be coming next, right?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I just loved the fake machine guns (or is it assault rifles?). I watch reruns every once in a while and I can't believe we used to fall for those fake punches. Nevertheless, I still love it and would love to watch the movie when it comes out.

      God I love it when a plan comes together.

      Wow Hollywood has ran out of idea's! What next movies about comic books...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Sorry, nothing tops the Family Guy episode when Peter, Cleveland, Quagmire, and Joe decide to dress up as the A-Team and 'help' the community.
        • 5 Years Ago
        LOL!!!

        Joe screams all excited to head out and then they have to wait for the wheelchair ramp to hoist him into the van.

        The A-Team action ain't complete without the gravelly voiced Colonel Decker...
      • 5 Years Ago
      I hope to God they don't ruin this the way they did The Hulk and Transformers and GI Joe.

      I just don't think Rampage is the right person to play BA.
      Bradley Cooper will make a great Face though.
