The upcoming big screen adaptation of the hit NBC series The A-Team is moving along quite quickly. According to Variety, recently announced director John Singleton is now casting for the film.

Ice Cube was rumored to be up for the Mr. T role of B.A. Baracas. Fox has now denied this, saying it would be nice but Cube's busy schedule has made his participation an impossibility. The rapper/actor is currently working on his own adaptation of the hit TV show Welcome Back, Kotter.

The A-Team updates the original series, this time revolving around a group of Iraq vets wanted by the U.S. military for a crime they didn't commit. The plot will revolve around oil tycoons and laser technology. No shooting date has been set at this time.
