Liam Neeson in talks for 'A-Team'

Mood: Excited

http://www.variety.com/article/VR111...goryid=13&cs=1

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.

Will this be set back in the 80's?

Or will they update it to modern day and make them Desert Storm/Iraqi Freedom vets?

I like the idea of Carnahan directing. He will make it gritty and real. None of that spoofing/comedy stuff like "Land of the Lost"

The only thing I care about is a montage with the A-Team building a superweapon out of odds and ends.

EPIC FAIL!
