File this one under: remakes the world just wasn't waiting for. The A Team movie starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper (above) opens this June. Come on, you remember how it goes, a crack team of Iraq War veterans are framed for a crime they didn't commit. Now they survive as soldiers for hire? What do you mean you don't remember?
And why do I have a feeling that this soon to be released flick will make Mommie Dearest look like Schindler's List?
Here's what will be interesting - finding out if they're playing it for its obvious camp value or if they'll instead do a darker Batman/Dark Knight reinterpretation of the original? The film does feature Liam Neeson after all, and he's already proved he's a dab hand at rescuing old clunkers and fixing them up for the modern age.
I have to say the cheesy dialogue in the trailer suggests they're going the camp route. Maybe that's the best option considering the original source (Boy George was once a guest on The A Team television show back in the 1980's).
