We may be looking at the new Face and Hannibal of the upcoming A-Team movie, folks. Bradley Cooper is in talks to join the project as Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck while Liam Neeson is reportedly in negotiations to star as Col. John "Hannibal" Smith. The filmmakers "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."
After seeing Cooper's most recent performance in The Hangover, I'm finding it a little hilarious to picture him starring alongside Liam Neeson, so if nothing else this should be interesting. The movie already has a big budget, big-name producers (Ridley and Tony Scott) and a release date of June 11, 2010. Here's what it doesn't have: Actors for "the roles of the 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." Any suggestions?
