TV producer Stephen J. Cannell has been trying to get an "A-Team" movie off the ground for a little while now, and here comes word that he wants Bruce Willis to play the leader of the team…

From "Although the identity of the new writer and details of the plot are unconfirmed, Cannell, who will be producing the film, has made no secret of the fact the 80s cult show will be updated for the new millennium. "I want to create it as taking place today. So the Gulf War could be a great angle. In the original, the A-Team were on the run after robbing a bank under orders just as the war ended.
