What do Bridesmaids and The Devil Inside have in common? Not a lot, except that both performed even better than expected at the box office, and execs are now eager to get going on terrible-sounding sequels. After the jump:

  • Melissa McCarthy refuses to do Bridesmaids 2 without Kristen Wiig
  • Mark Wahlberg reports that The Fighter 2 is looking for a new director
  • Joe Carnahan discusses the (non) possibility of an A-Team 2, and more interestingly, the possibility of a Narc 2

A-Team Trailer Arrives This Weekend

The A-Team

Those of you itching for a more detailed look at Joe Carnahan’s new A-Team movie need not wait too much longer: According to a report by a movie theater projectionist over at AICN, the trailer should be out for public consumption this upcoming weekend. The same projectionist also provided a pretty good description of the trailer. Here’s an excerpt:

Believe me, this trailer does everything a good teaser should, it touches all the right bases without giving too much away. I don’t know where you’ll be this June 11th, but me personally? Even if it’s just for two hours, I’ll be hiring… the A-Team.

The trailer clocks in at 1:41. Head on over to AICN for the full description. In the comments below, feel free to let us know if you’ve seen the trailer, and if so, what you thought of it. You can see all of our coverage of the A-Team movie by clicking here.

Dwight Schultz Mr. T A Team

A-Team fans rejoice, it appears that there will be at least one nod to the classic ’80s action franchise in Joe Carnahan’s upcoming modern remake. The Official Dwight Schultz Fansite has the word that Schultz, who played “Howling Mad” Murdock in the original series, was recently in Vancouver filming a cameo part. He even had some kind words to say about District 9’s Sharlto Copely, who plays the new Murdock. Schultz calls Copely “brilliant beyond words”, and goes on to say, “honestly, if Sharlto is given an opportunity to do what I saw in that [screen] test, Murdock will be better than ever.”

Joe Carnahan’s A-Team film is actually coming together, if you pardon the expression, right now. What a strange world we live in. Does anybody actually remember the show as being any good? I thought even its fans had it pegged as a bit of a kitschy, guilty pleasure.

Soon we’ll start seeing images from the set, I’m sure, and most of the speculation about the cast and probably even that iconic van will be laid to rest. Indeed, more details are getting nailed down all the time with Sharlto Copley’s negotiations now confirmed by the trades, and a lead role for Jessica Biel also reportedly in the works.

Its only a rumour, but it’s a heck of an eye-catching one: is District 9’s Sharlto Copley in the frame for a star turn as Howlin’ Mad Murdock in Matthew Carnahan’s new A-Team movie? It would certainly be nice, wouldn’t it? He landed with one heck of a splash in District 9 and already an awful lot of film lovers have taken him to their hearts.

Some time back in May, IESB reported a rumour that Bradley Cooper was lining up the role of Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck in Joe Carnahan‘s A-Team adaptation. Of course, Cooper then later gave out the standard non-denial denials all over the place but this morning, Variety are confirming that he’s in negotiations. Also navigating the choppy waters of studio contract formulation is Liam Neeson, who looks set to step up as Col. John “Hannibal” Smith. My, what catchy handles these A-Team boys have.

Chris Pine Mad For the A-Team?


The upcoming A-Team film, now being developed by director Joe Carnahan since John Singleton left the project, is reportedly scheduled for release in summer 2010. That should mean that the cast are being brought together right now (don’t you just love it when a cast comes together?) and, therefore, Canahan is likely to have recently been talking to prospectives.

According to an interview with MTV, charming young actor chap Chris Pine is one of those maybes. Carnahan and Pine previously worked together on Smoking Aces, and this fact alone led the blood hounding MTV to ask if an A-Team re-team was a possibility. Pine’s line:

We’ve talked about it. I’d love to.

John Singleton Exits A-Team

John Singleton has exited 20th Century Fox’s big screen adaptation of the A-Team. Apparently the project, which has gone through a number of rewrites, is still not ready for prime time. Fox believes they need more time to develop the script, but Singleton is moving on. We no final draft, no director, and no announced cast, I wouldn’t expect to see this film anytime soon. The film was originally set to hit theaters in June 2009, but won’t likely see release until a year later at earliest. Personally, I’ve always been under the theory that the A-Team television series is all the A-Team we need. I for one hope this project falls down into the deep depths of development hell.

Other Fox release changes include: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel moving to Christmas 2009, pushing the Dwayne Johnson family comedy Tooth Fairy to November 13th 2009, and Christopher Columbus’ teen comedy I Love You Beth Cooper will now hit theaters on Jult 31st, instead of February 13th 2009.
