The Fox remake just didn't create 'enough revenue' to warrant a follow-up to Joe Carnahan's action-adventure.

‘The A-Team’ Sequel Won't Happen Says Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper says there will be no sequel to The A-Team Fans of last summer's action remake The A-Team will be disappointed to learn that a sequel will not be happening. Bradley Cooper, who played "Face," is promoting his new movie Limitless and said there will not be a follow-up to The A-Team. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview.

"I loved it too. But unfortunately, outside of you, a few of your friends and myself, there just wasn't enough revenue to supply a second instalment of that franchise."

The A-Team took in $177.1 million worldwide from a $110 million production budget, which does not include marketing costs. The profit margin is, apparently, just not high enough to allow for a sequel to be made. A direct-to-video sequel with an all-new cast? Maybe.

The A-Team was released June 11th, 2010.

        That sucks. They spent $110 mil in making the movie and they got back $177.1 mil worldwide. It seems to me that they got back their $110 mil plus extra. Fox needs to realize that if they make a direct to video sequel, with a different cast, that it's guaranteed to crash and burn. People need to tell Fox to just use the cast they had in the first one and make a sequel. The 2010 A-Team movie was awesome, and a sequel would just as awesome, if not better. I'll admit, when I first heard that Liam Neeson was cast as Hannibal Smith, I had my doubts. But when I saw the movie, and how well he played the part, minus the odd disguises, I think that he played the character fantastically. Sharlto Copely was an excellent Murdock. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was an awesome B.A. And Bradly Cooper played a really cool Faceman. These guys did this movie really well together. To get anybody else, would destroy a potential sequel

            aw this is a damn shame. i really enjoyed this movie was was looking forward to another one. it's a great popcorn action flick and the cast was great, despite what many of the idiots below are saying. and for those who thought the story was sh*t.......exactly what do you think the story should have been?? please enlighten us with all your infinate wisdom and moviemaking expertise. it was a movie based on a tv show about men who do jobs that no one else will do. ok, so how exactly did they falter?

                Very angry, was hoping for a sequel because all of the actors wanted to do it maybe in the future.

                  Not a good news, this is. Looking forward to a sequel, The Mime has been.

                    The A-team was not the best movie out there. But it was a decently good action movie. There was only two things for me that was wrong with the script. One, about the time you find out who all the main bad guys was, you knew it right before it happend. And two, the whole B.A. not wanting to hurt anyone and such. That was the two biggest mistakes in story. As for anything eles, I thought it was pretty good. The end fight was more in line with the TV show, as they set up stuff. But I loved the two "mission" type fighting. The Truck Heist and the Bust out of Jail set up.

                      I do think the casting wasn't perfect but besides that it wasn't all that bad, I mean I didn't exactly love it but I think disaster is a bit harsh. I can live without seeing a sequel though but I'm thinking a better reboot in another decade or so could be the better option.

                        Wow! What a f*cking shocker. /rolls eyes

                        Anyone who is surprised by this should have their head examined. This movie was an absolute disaster and shouldn't even be classified as the A-Team.

                        The casting was horrible, the story was horrible nothing was of any interest. Every single thing about the movie was f*cking ugly.

                        Destroying the A-Team van from the start was stupid. Having BA not hurt anyone was incredibly retarded and the list goes on and on.

                        Thank the f*ck there is no sequel and this will be forgotten and remade a decade from now.

                            I was hoping at least it would do good overseas for them to go ahead with the sequel. These guys made a great team. Shame too now that Liam is considered an "Action Star" some headless suit might have given this a chance. I remember seeing this as a kid and as a 70's/80's tv show made to big screen this was one of the better ones. damned again...

                              Some movies the trailers may as well be warning signs for. They come with an implied subtext that reads along the lines of a caution label. Needless to say, those movies I go nowhere near. The first A-Team was one of those movies.

                              The only thing I'm disappointed about is that the studio is shying away from a sequel because of money, and not because of the fact that the first inevitably sucked, despite my having seen it. My opinion. Please no derogatory laced hate replies :(

                                    I'm disappointed as well. I thougth the cast was perfect, there was good chemistry, & there was the perfect balance between action/comedy. Def one of the best movies in a summer full of dull movies. I even enjoyed this movie more than The Expendables & I had higher expectations for The Expendables.(Not saying I didn't like The Expendables mind you, I just like The A-Team movie better)
