While promoting the DVD release of Illegal Tender, John Singleton confirmed to BlackVoices.com that he will be directing a big screen version of the television series, The A-Team.

The TV-Show, which ran from 1983-87 and starred George Peppard and Mr. T, concerned an unofficial team of Vietnam vets wanted by the military for a crime they didn't commit. Their action-packed adventures combined helping the innocent while running from the law.

The film has been in development for years, but only now is it finally gaining momentum.

The new The A-Team will be updated from the Vietnam era and reflect contemporary issues and politics. Tone of the film will be less cartoony and more serious, in the vein of Die Hard and Lethal Weapon.
