John Singleton talks The A-Team!:
B.A., Murdock, Face and Hannibal, yeah, they'll be back in the big sceen The A-Team movie! Director John Singleton (2 Fast 2 Furious) talked about the tone of the film;
"A-Team is going. It's not a comic movie farce like Starsky and Hutch, it's kind of in the tradition of the 80's action pictures, the man's movies like Die Hard, Predator, Commando, or even Lethal Weapon - more so than anything else. The action is very serious, but there is humor. That's what we are going for. I don't know who is in the cast yet, so all this bullshit of who is saying who is this person and who is… nobody is playing Mr. T - the character's name is B.A. Baracus, he will have a Mohawk and there is a moment in the movie where he actually gets the Mohawk cause he's going crazy. And I don't know who is in the cast yet…but I do know that the only person I want right now is, that I really, really want is Woody Harrelson to play Murdock - the guy who is crazy but he's kind of real smart, a jack of all trades. That's the only person I really, really want."
Woody Harrelson as Murdock is a perfect choice! Ice Cube also revealed that he'd loved to play B.A., but Singleton confirmed that no actors has been cast yet.
