The A-Team: According to Variety, James Bond scribe, Bruce Feirstein, is writing the movie version of popular 1980s television series "The A-Team" for Fox.
Skein, 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.
"Not to denigrate the TV show, but nobody ever died," Cannell said. "We drove cars off cliffs and people got out and walked away. We're not going to do that (in the movie). In this the tone is more dangerous -- you can really die. It's very tense and exciting."
Fans, however, will likely be treated to at least of glimpse of Mr. T in the pic.
"Mr. T and I had lunch last week, and I'd really like to have him in the movie, although we haven't begun casting," Cannell said. "I always think it's nice to see the stars of the old show in cameo roles in the movie. But obviously he won't be playing B.A. Baracus."
