The A-Team, showing in cinemas this week, looks to recoil away from the action clichés of the 1983 TV series, without letting go of the swagger and firearm awesomeness of all four members.

Similar to the original series, the A-Team follows the adventures of four U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers-turned-mercenaries in their quest to redeem themselves after being arrested for a crime they did not commit.

Col. John “Hannibal” Smith leads a group of soldiers to vindication and is ably supported by Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck, Sgt. B.A. Baracus, and Capt. H.M. Murdock.

The team’s famously unorthodox yet effective approach to executing operation plans is a thing of beauty for audiences, but a big nuisance to their enemies.

The film stars Hollywood veteran Liam Neeson, The Hangover’s Bradley Cooper, MMA fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and District 9’s Sharlto Copley.

Looking to dispel claims of the TV series being sexist, producers  decided to cast a woman in the fine form of the sexy Jessica Biel to shut us all up.

The A-Team’s motto: “There is no plan B.” Yet we can’t help but be tempted to create our own version of the group. And quite frankly, a plan B is in order, all the way to plan G.

Allow us to play casting directors for a moment as we reformulate our 2010 version of the A-Team.

Next: Tom Selleck as John "Hannibal" Smith and LL Cool J as B.A. Baracus?
