One of the most popular action series in TV history, The A-Team, is returning as a huge budget film for June, 2010 release.

Twentieth Century Fox has announced that Joe Carnahan (Smokin' Aces) will direct the flick.

Though the plot has not yet been revealed, the filmmakers say they will retain the original permise of 4 Vietnam vets (now Iraqi war vets) who have escaped from prison (where they were incarcerated for robbery) and become heroic mercenaries.

Carnahan says his goal is to "make a film that reflects on the real world without losing the great sense of fun and the velocity of action in a classic summer popcorn film."

No cast has been set.

The original series starred George Peppard, Dirk Benedict, Mr. T, and Dwight Schultz and aired from 1983 - 1987.
