According to Variety, 20th Century Fox is far along in assembling a creative team to transform the 1980s TV series The A-Team into a summer 2010 blockbuster.

Here's what the studio has lined up so far:

  • Joe Carnahan will direct;
  • Ridley Scott will produce, with Tony Scott serving as executive producer;
  • The goal is to start production by June, with the goal of a June 11, 2010, release date.

On the television show, four Vietnam veterans convicted of armed robbery escape from military prison and became do-gooder mercenaries.

On the big screen, The Middle East will replace Vietnam as the locale The A-Team did their tour of duty, but the origin story will remain the starting point.
