Singleton leaves The A Team
A little over four years ago to the day, some guy called Richard Brunton wrote about a film of The A-Team. Four years later and we are not really any further forward.
If anything we've taken a step back, as John Singleton will no longer be directing. Not only that, but the release date has been pushed back too. I'm beginning to wish someone would put and end to this one.
Since The A-Team film was first rumoured in October 2004, we keep getting little snippets of news. Mostly indicating that it was moving forward, and the odd casting rumour. Then John Singleton agreed to direct it, and we all thought we were finally getting somewhere.
However, even with a director it was slow going. And the last we heard Tyrese Gibson had agreed to join the cast. But now IESB say the release date has been moved, and Singleton has left the project. Instead of being released in June 2009, it will be June 2010. They say that Singleton has left due to the number of re writes, and the date change.
I'm beginning to wonder if this one will ever get made. The more it shifts, the less likely actors who were interested before will be free. And if they can't come up with a decent script in four years, shouldn't we be worried? Do you still want an A-Team film?
