Got an email from a reader who pointed me to this article on Blackvoices.com regarding John Singleton, who was scheduled to direct a sci-fi thriller called “Executive Order: Six”, and was rumored to be the front runner for “The A-Team” big-screen remake. According to the site, they quote Singleton as saying that he has in fact signed on to direct “The A-Team”, and has dropped “Six” as a result.
While promoting the DVD release of ‘Illegal Tender’, in which he produced, and coming out on Dec.18, John Singleton has confirmed what LatinoReview.com had posted earlier; that he will be directing a big screen version of TV series, ‘The A-Team’.
At the same time, he also confirmed that he will NOT be directing ‘Executive Order: Six’ as previously reported by trade outlets.
Why would John Singleton trade a no-name sci-fi movie for a surefire hit like “The A-Team”? Oh, I don’t know, maybe because he’s not an idiot?
