Liam Neeson is in negotiations with 20th Century Fox to star in its long-gestating bigscreen adaptation of "The A-Team" as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith. Bradley Cooper is in early talks to play Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck in the Joe Carnahan-directed pic based on the 1980s TV series.

Production begins in late August for a June 11, 2010, release.

Ridley Scott is producing with Jules Daly and series creator Stephen J. Cannell, with Tony Scott exec producing through Scott Free. Carnahan and Brian Bloom polished a script by Skip Woods, whose recent script credits include "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra" and "Wolverine."

Neeson is in talks to play Hannibal, the role originated by George Peppard, while Cooper would play "Faceman," the role played by Dirk Benedict.

Neeson and Fox are working out money issues. He is coming off the global hit "Taken" and most recently completed "Chloe" and "Clash of the Titans," playing Zeus in the latter.

Cooper has established himself as a commodity after his starring role in Todd Phillips-directed hit "The Hangover." He just completed playing the title role opposite Sandra Bullock in "All About Steve."

Carnahan, Fox and Scott Free have kept the series premise -- four war vets wrongly convicted of armed robbery escape from a military prison to become do-gooder mercenaries -- but they've replaced the campy nature of the series with a tone closer to those of "Mission: Impossible" and "Ocean's Eleven."

Still to be cast are the roles of Capt. "Howling Mad" Murdock, played by Dwight Schultz in the original, and Sgt. "B.A." Baracus, the role that made Mr. T an '80s icon.

I wonder if the bad guys will actually get killed in this movie, or if we'll see them walking away dazed and confused from the flaming wreckage of a truck that exploded and cartwheeled through the air six times before landing at the bottom of a cliff?

Perhaps they can cast Will Ferrell in the Mr. T role.

Well, Neeson does have a "very particular set of skills" "skills he has acquired over a very long career."

Skills that make him a nightmare for people like you. If he gets this part that'll be the end of it. He will not look for you, he will not pursue you. But if he doesnt, he will look for you, he will find you, and he will kill you.

The film’s featherweight tone and self-conscious excess would be a lot more palatable if everyone didn’t seem so insufferably pleased with themselves. The film acts as if it’s won the race before the starting gun has even been fired.

cooper did very fine as well, he has a good swag about him
rampage did well, he was a tad more soft than i expected
the other guy(dude from district 6) was really good. Very good performace by him.

Plenty of action, with some comedy. Just overall badassness

Brilliant.

First things first: there are some Mad Men showing up in films nowadays.

Second: there is no plot to this movie. What plot there is doesn't appear to matter to anyone at any time, because it just creates gigantic excuses for setpieces on top of setpieces.

Third: god bless it for it. This is the funnest movie of the summer so far, and has a good chance of sticking there until August. Everything is batshit insane. And I mean batshit. The whole setup is weird - the movie starts with Hannibal and Face already working for the Army, Hannibal tries to take B.A.'s van en route to saving Face from being killed by a Mexican drug lord, they save Face and the drug lord's wife (whom Face had slept with), get to a hospital, pick up Murdock, B.A. develops a fear of flying when Murdock's avoidance of heat-seeking missiles ends up launching him out the side of the helicopter, and, well, the entire point of the helicopter bit? To bring the drug lord across the border so that it would invade American airspace, thus causing an American jet to fire at it and blow it up. BAM. TITLE. This is a Joe Carnahan movie through and through. The movie just goes to insane levels from that point on, literally filling every bit of time between the next gunfight/explosion/chase/fistfight/mexican standoff/rampage/cooking session with about seven thousand jokes. Everyone's mugging for the camera. It feels so much like someone gave Joe Carnahan way too much money and said "try to make a franchise out of a TV show and make it look like Smokin' Aces." And he went off and did it. There's like five minutes of downtime where it gets serious (smartly this scene legit spends four minutes on Liam Neeson's face, since he's the only one who can pull it off), like an hour into the movie. Then it's back to wackadoo insanity cuckoo bird explosion slapstick gunfight bodyslam smirk. The movie's relentless. It wears you down. It works about as well as The Losers, and is about as deep. It's a compliment. This is the funnest thing to arrive in theaters since Kick-rear end.

Will it hold together on a second viewing? gently caress no. But neither has anything else this summer (maybe MacGruber, maybe Get Him to The Greek). Most haven't held up to one viewing. This one, thankfully, does.

YES!

This is a good deal of fun. It's honest to the original material but fun enough that it really does feel like a movie and not just a slightly upsized episode might be for a show on Fox. I will say that it goes a bit too far in the finale, but other than that it's a more than worthy remake.

The cast is roundly excellent. Neeson still sounds like Neeson but he seems comfortable and the grey hair ties the character together. Cooper is a good Face and the script does him favors to build the character so that was fun. BA gets the most "character" development in the movie, which is probably for the best so that it wasn't two hours of someone trying to ape Mr. T's mannerisms and quips. He gets that stuff in and it's fun, but he's given a little here and there to say so it helps. I didn't even know that District 9's Copely was going to be Murdoch so that was a pleasant surprise. They actually let him have his accent or to do other accents a few times so I can't say how well he actually does as an American but regardless Murdoch and BA had good moments and Murdoch alone was the source of much audience laughter.

The plot is a little scattered but workable. I really liked that they showed several phases of the team rather than go the Mission Impossible route of showing just one operation. You get a feel for them before they formed up, after they were comfortable, and after they're on the run. It gives a nice broad basis so you aren't just supposed to accept any camaraderie or history. They also stayed true to the MacGyvering basis of the series several times, which I felt helped make it, as a film, stand apart from just being any other action setpiece movie. You don't get a lot of movies where they cobble something together like this, so it gave it character.

The action is over the top but the only time I slightly taken out of it was during the finale where it got a little too much "running from a greenscreen threat that will never harm them". Outside of that it was silly but okay. There is some shakeycam for those that are sensitive to that but the film is also paced well enough so it wasn't overwhelming and they did a fair job of establishing what was going on to help people follow along. Sit a few rows further back and I think you'll be fine.

If I had some issues, it was that their plans were extremely precarious and several times rely on people doing Bond villain talking before shooting or to shoot in particular locations. The big CG ending was perhaps too much and there are a couple of punchlines or alternate takes used in the trailers that felt missing in the film.

Oh, and stay to the end for a scene after the credits roll.

By the way, lots and lots of little uses of the A-Team theme. I was a little disappointed we didn't get the full blown movement until the credits, though.

Dumb reviews like this are popping up all over the place.

http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE65903I20100610

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Beginning with the sound era, studios and films producers have longed for a way to eliminate the screenwriter from the filmmaking process.

By and large, writers are prickly personalities who absorb too much time, demand too much credit and need to be kept clear of the set, where they might interfere with the director, who is, after all, the real auteur of the film.

With "The A-Team," a Fox film derived from a 1980s TV series, this dream now is a reality. The film seems nearly writer-free. Absolutely no time gets wasted on story, character development or logic. The film lurches from one action sequence to another, with little connection between the scenes.

The characters move directly from small to big screen with new actors, of course, but little else changed including their famous catchphrases. So the screenwriting as such has been reduced to storyboards, stunt rigging and visual effects. Of the three writers receiving credit, one is the director, action maven Joe Carnahan ("Smokin' Aces"), and the other is one of the film's actors, Brian Bloom.

Carnahan's reputation among young men for delivering action will mean more than any association with a 25-year-old TV series. So "A-Team" could open on Friday with a weekend box office haul of more than $30 million.

The story's four Special Forces soldiers meet in an inexplicable series of shootouts in Sonora, Mexico. These are Liam Neeson in the George Peppard role of the cocky, cigar-chomping team leader "Hannibal" Smith; Bradley Cooper as "Face" Peck, a man efficient at illicit requisitions when not baring his chest like a male model; pro martial artist Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as Mr. T -- sorry, B.A. Baracus, the team's driver and muscle -- and "District 9's" amazing Sharlto Copley as a mentally unstable pilot.

The quartet seems to operate free of any military oversight through Iraq, Germany, Switzerland, Lake Tahoe and the Long Beach Harbor. At some point, a false crime is hung on the four so they can go "rogue," which fits the concept behind the Stephen J. Cannell/Frank Lupo TV series. But disconnection from the U.S. military has no apparent impact on supply lines, support personnel or logistical capabilities. Good thing, too, for that would require a writer to figure out where all this backup comes from.

Various people are on the A-Team's tail, including Jessica Biel, who as Face's former flame gives the film its only female sex appeal; Patrick Wilson as an apparently rogue CIA officer; and Bloom, a mysterious military contractor.

All the actors can do amid the explosions and stunts is to develop a comic banter among themselves that isn't about anything other than how unconcerned everyone is over these supposedly life-and-death situations. Because for all the firepower in any sequence, none of the heroes gets more than a bump on the head or clothes that need cleaning. Yes, a writer would only gum things up with suspense and character.

The actors are great for their parts (my only complaint w/ Neeson is that he sounds too much like Neeson, but hey... what can you do?), and even the dumb dialogue fits b/c it is meant to fit.

Very good summer action flick...

I don't know how I felt after this movie, it was so rediculous that I couldnt take it seriously. Half the time I couldnt understand the jokes cause they came too fast or they were lost in the sound. Personally its worth a rent but I won't buy it when it comes out. Entertaining summer movie which is what I expected.

That's the tv show. Go back and watch an episode. Its all done for laughs. At least the early episodes when it was most popular.

If anything, the movie stayed pretty faithful to the show. Just updated it.

Yeah I know the TV show, I watched reruns back in the day, it was just so goofy that I didn't know what to think when someone asked me afterwards "How was it?"

Dunno, dun care.

I only wish he had expired attempting to perform a stunt.

F Hollywood for raping my childhood yet again.

F Rampage for being a baby killing thug asshole that should never have had the opportunity to continue his fighting career much less make millions with this movie.

I refuse to spend my money on this film. Too bad too... I enjoy most everything Liam does.

Hollywood? You mean the same "Hollywood", Steven J. Cannell, the creator and producer of the TV series and THIS FILM?

"Hollywood" had nothing to do with it. It was Cannell's property to do as he saw fit.

Seems like 20th Century Fox is the film studio behind the movie. Fox qualifies as Hollywood, no?

No, Fox is only the distributor.

Steven J. Cannell produced the movie, which means he put up the funding that hired the screenwriter, casting director, actors, associate producers, composer, gaffers, electricians, and on and on and on.

He may have secured a deal with Fox for distribution early on, and maybe even co-funding. But HE owned the intellectual property, not Fox, and he produced the movie as he saw fit.

65% of the time these days (or more), the studios only distribute films. They don't fund and order them.

And I don't think that Fox, being the Fox New Channel as well, represents "Hollywood".

:D

There was a girl in my movie theater. She saw the A-Team and when it was over she screamed and grew a cock.

I know it's rare, but I agree here.
