Among other interesting tidbits, Singleton said he wants Woody Harrelson to portray Murdock, which we think would be a perfect choice.
Here's an excerpt from the interview, during which the director discusses his plans for the remake of this classic television show:
A-Team is going. It's not a comic movie farce like Starsky and Hutch, it's kind of in the tradition of the 80's action pictures, the man's movies like Die Hard, Predator, Commando, or even Lethal Weapon ï¿½ï¿½" 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 ï¿½ï¿½" 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 ï¿½ï¿½" 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.
