Having landed himself a role of James T. Kirk in TV-to-film adaptation "Star Trek", Chris Pine sets his eyes on another big screen adaptation of a classic TV show, "The A-Team". The 28-year-old confessed of his hope in joining the cast of the series' movie version to MTV when asked whether he had approached director Joe Carnahan for a possible reunion in the new project.

"We've talked about it," Pine admitted in his response to the question, adding that he would love to once again work with the director after previous collaboration in "Smokin' Aces". While his good look can land him the role of Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck, the "Just My Luck" star has another idea in his mind. "No, Murdock is my man," he insisted. "I love Murdock."

"The A-Team" will be a big screen adaptation to the NBC's popular '80s TV series of the same name. Joe Carnahan has been appointed to direct the film as well as to polish the Skip Woods' script along with writer Brian Bloom. Jack Black, Owen Wilson, Brendan Fraser and Tyrese Gibson are some of the actors linked to the project. "The A-Team" which will use the original idea of the series may begin its production sometime in June this year for a June 11, 2010 release.

Starting his career through television, Chris Pine landed his first movie appearance alongside Anne Hathaway in "Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement" in 2004. Since then he has starred in a series of films, including "Blind Dating" and "Bottle Shock". He is recently linked to the Hal Jordan part in "Green Lantern". Still, he has denied of being offered the part.
