21 Jump Street, The A-Team, & Greatest American Hero: During a recent interview with IESB, TV super producer, Stephen J. Cannell, talked about recent rumblings of some big screen adaptations of hit TV shows from the 80's...
Greatest American Hero fans will rejoice to hear that Disney is moving forward with this project to create a feature film. Cannell has completed the story outline and writers have been hired to finish the first draft within the next few months. He stated he already has an actor in mind for the lead role of Ralph, but declined to say exactly who.
A feature film version of The A-team will be headed to theaters if Stephen's plan comes together. However, in order to modernize the plot, instead of four Vietnam vets on the run for a crime they did not commit the characters will be comprised of four Desert Storm vets. It's genre will also shift towards a more serious action-oriented Die Hard style film. Cannell promises the characters to be much better at aiming than their predecessors, yes people will die with this A-Team.
This brings us to 21 Jump (mandatory pause) Street. This story outline has also been completed. A new batch of characters will be introduced but unlike Battlestar Galactica, the old characters will make appearances as well.
