John Singleton Dishes on The A-Team Movie

by at . Comments
Director John Singleton recently opened up to about his plans for The A-Team movie.

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 ��" 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.
