The biggest news? Singleton wants Woody Harrelson to play Murdock in the film. At this time, no one has been cast. The movie is not intended to be a farce. And everyone that joins the project will be signed for multiple films.
Singleton stated, "The A-Team is going. It's not a comic movie farce like Starsky & Hutch, it's kind of in the tradition of the 80's action pictures, the man's movies like "Die HardPredatorCommando", or even "Lethal Weapon" - more so than anything else. The action is very serious, but there is humor. That's what we are going for. I don't know who is in the cast yet, so all this bullshit of who is saying who is this person and who is... nobody is playing Mr. T - the character's name is B.A. Baracus, he will have a Mohawk and there is a moment in the movie where he actually gets the Mohawk cause he's going crazy. And I don't know who is in the cast yet...but I do know that the only person I want right now is, that I really, really want is Woody Harrelson to play Murdock - the guy who is crazy but he's kind of real smart, a jack of all trades. That's the only person I really, really want."
