John Singleton to Direct A-Team Movie?

4 Comments

I must confess something: Yes, I know that The A-Team is an incredibly silly TV show where people run around with AK-47s and machineguns firing endless at each other, spending thousands of rounds a second, and no one ever gets killed — EVER. But hey, I still loved the show anyway, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every episode EVER MADE, or my name isn’t B.A. Baracus. Now comes word that John Singleton is the front runner to direct the big-screen remake of the film.

Hey, why not? Singleton has proven that he can do gritty (“Boyz in the Hood”) and at the same time go full-bore commercial (“2 Fast 2 Furious”), and has even managed to meld the two (“Four Brothers”). If he does likewise with “The A-Team”, it not only could work, it’ll work fantastically.

Here’s IESB with the news:

John Singleton is said to be the top contender to direct the big screen adaptation of The A-Team for 20th Century Fox.

The newly revamped A-Team will center around a group of Gulf War veterans as opposed to the Vietnam vets of the original.

And if you don’t know anything about The A-Team TV show, I’m not going to waste time explaining it to you, because frankly, you’re just not cool enough for me to waste my time.

Update:

I was watching G4’s Attack of the Show and they mentioned that Singleton was officially signed on to direct “The A-Team” movie. Now I don’t know where they got their information, but that’s what they said, so that’s what I’m telling you.

    I think Singleton is a good choice. Curtis Johnson, who directed “S.W.A.T.” and “The Sentinel,” would’ve been great, too. But, who will play, Hannibal, Faceman, B.A. and Murdock?

    Not sure about who’ll play who, but yep, I think Singleton would make a great choice. He’s developed a nice balance for the commercial and gritty. “Four Brothers” is highly underrated in my opinion. And from what I’ve heard of the remake, they’re going for a much more VIOLENT movie.
