After years of development hell, it looks like The A-Team is finally making some forward progress. Variety has reported that The A-Team has been scheduled for a July 12, 2009 release date.

The film, based off the 80s TV show of the same name, will be directed by John Singleton from a script by the writing team of Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. Casting for the film hasn't been announced.

The A-Team followed the exploits of a team of ex-special forces soldiers who go on the lam after being accused of crimes they didn't commit.
