Sultry actress Jessica Biel has signed up to play the leading lady in the forthcoming remake of classic 80s TV series The A-Team. Jessica will play ladies' man Face's love interest, who is also an army general pursuing the group of vigilantes. Many have poured scorn on the choice of actors who will appear in the new film, however Jessica Biel's presence is sure to keep a few of the male contingent happy. Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper are also signed up as members of the new A-Team - which is scheduled for release in late 2010.

Ridley and Tony Scott are set to produce, while Joe Carnahan directs

Meanwhile, South African actor Sharlto Copley, who recently appeared in District 9, is set to play Murdoch in the new film. The line-up of replacements for the original cast has been the subject of much debate and controversy, even before any of the names were announced. UFC fighter Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson's role as infamous character B.A.Baracus has led to outcry amongst both fans of the original show, and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fans alike.
