'A-Team' Acquires New Teammate

For reasons unclear, it looks like the A-Team is still driving its racing-striped van into theaters. THR is reporting that Smokin' Aces' Joe Carnahan is in talks to direct the Ridley and Tony Scott-produced adaptation:

Joe Carnahan is in negotiations to helm the action movie with Ridley and Tony Scott's shingle Scott Free coming on board as producers. Stephen J. Cannell, who co-created the show, is also producing.

The trek to bring "A-Team" to the big screen has been a long one, with various actors, directors and writers landing on it before springing off of it. John Singleton was last attached, but ultimately left after casting issues stalled the project.

Fox is betting this is the right combination, setting a June 11, 2010, release date for the feature, which is written by Skip Woods.

I expect to hear the cast announcements soon; otherwise it means Joe Carnahan will have to deal with daily calls from Mr. T for that much longer.
