Carnahan does A-Team

01.27.2009

THE A-TEAM is suddenly the WTF-TEAM. The feature version of the 80s TV series has a new plan coming together that Hannibal ought to love.

Fox is rounding up an impressive cast to fill THE A-TEAM's new creative ranks: Joe Carnahan as director, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott as producers, and Skip Woods (HITMAN) as writer.

The studio originally had slotted a Summer 2009 release with John Singleton directing, but that came apart like Murdock off his meds. Fox is currently eyeballing a release date of June 11, 2010 for the latest attempt.

Carnahan has demonstrated an ability to handle wild action (SMOKIN' ACES) and compelling characters (NARC), let's hope he can blend the skills together in a satisfying manner. Having the Scotts steering the hastily constructed makeshift military vehicle (along with creator Stephen J. Cannell) might help.

In case you somehow didn't know, the original series followed a team of former Special Forces soldiers turned hired heroes who protect innocents for cold cash while constantly running from the authorities for "crimes they didn't commit".

Extra Tidbit: SMOKIN' star Ryan Reynolds for Templeton "Face" Peck?

and if you can find them......call.

Ok got my cast I may have robbed a few here.
Hannibal - Mel Gibson
Face - Christian Bale
B.A - Ving Rhames
Murdoch - Jim Carrey

That is the way to go, it's about time Bale did some kind of comedy to, he is so funny in American Psycho I think he would slip right in. It will have it's serious moments but I think it will be have defo comedic elements.

I don't know the characters, but from the picture the two guys in the back have to be played by Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. They're pretty good serious actors too, if this movie takes itself seriously.

I hope they do something more along the lines of The Fugitive instead of Starsky and Hutch.

Carnahan is a good choice I think. And Reynolds is definitely my favorite for Face.

BTW:
Clooney or Ford for Hannibal
David Arquette for Howling Mad
Terry Crewes for BA

A-Team

Bale should be playing the face man not Reynolds. Jim Carrey for Murdoch may be.

I think Joe Carnahan needs to 'over-haul' the characters (i'm sure he can and I trust him) but leave some slighgt glimmer of nostalgia we fondly remember.

As for the Scotts, Ridley could handle the 'political elements/themes' while Tony takes care of the [link]

As for Skip Woods.... Dude, try not to mess-up. Strangely, I think this could work.

BTW will the A-team be Gulf/Iraqi war vets? My memory is a little hazy exactly what "crimes" were the A-team accused of?

WTF-Team - nice concept Dave!

Joe Carnahan surely has a weird track record, especially if one considers all the movies he was SUPPOSED to direct. I'm not his biggest fan but I think he has potential. And teaming up with the Super Scott Bros. certainly won't hurt. Let's hope Fox won't screw that one up.

As for Skip Woods, I'm not sure anymore. I really liked Swordfish back in the day (flawed, but still one of the best R-rated, balls-to-the-walls action flicks of recent memory IMHO) but Hitman was a real piece of crap.

Totally agree with everyone before me...

I like everything about this idea except for Skip Woods. SO GLAD they dumped Singleton. And yes, Dave. Reynolds for face would be awesome.

Wow. Skip Woods? SeRiOuSlY? I tried to watch "Hitman" on a plane and couldn't get through it... On a plane. people! Edited down and whatnot. Garbage! "Swordfish"? Ugh! How does this guy get hired???

Hopefully, Woods did a draft that Carnahan can come in and totally overhaul. Fingers crossed.

What the fuck happened to John Singleton? I thought he was the one pushing to make this movie?

Having Carnahan and the Scott Bros.on board is neat though...

Sweet

I actually like this news a lot. I think the Scotts will make sure what happened to Swordfish won't happen here (GREAT script, bad movie save for Halle's Berry Boobies).

Hitman . . . and Swordfish!

He also wrote Swordfish, which makes him far more impressive.

Wait . . . not really. Not at all.

HOW THE HELL IS....

How the hell is the writer of Hitman impressive? You were being sarcastic right? Did you see that movie? I'm happy with everyone else involved but having the writer be someone who was responsible for Hitman makes me more nervous then excited.
