The A-Team set to start
The A-Team is back. And this time with a “Howling Mad” South African , Sharlto Copley. The District 9 actor plays H.D. ”Howling Mad” Murdoch and joins the cast of the remake of the Eighties TV show, currently in production in Vancouver.
With Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley, and Quentin “Rampage” Jackson stepping into the iconic roles, this is one remake that’s getting major buzz.
Liam Neeson will be great as Hannibal Smith and Quentin “Rampage” Jackson has huge boots the fill to emulate Mr. T (B.A. Baracas). Remember Mr T was afraid of flying and he also used to say “sucker fool”.
The cast is completed by Jessica Biel , who plays an ex-girlfriend of Faceman and Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) will play a CIA operative.
While the premise of director Joe Carnahan’s “A-Team” will still center on four war vets wrongly convicted of a crime they didn’t commit, the tone will be slicker and less silly than the TV series (which, frankly, won’t be too difficult).
What do you think about the casting choices?
