Joe Carnahan’s big-screen version of The A-Team had just kinda been off my radar a bit. I’m finding it really hard to care. Although now that Sharlto Copely, of District 9, is joining the mix, I’m a bit more interested. However, also coming aboard is Jessica Biel, who tends to leave a bad taste in my mouth.
And good Lord, I must have been asleep whenever Liam Neeson signed on to this thing! Just what the hell is he doing here? I thought Taken was beneath him, but this is pushing it! I guess he’s still being punished for The Haunting.
Who knows, though? Maybe it’ll be good. Joe Carnahan is a talented guy. I didn’t see Narc, but I heard a lot of good things, and while Smokin’ Aces wasn’t really a total winner, some of it was pretty fun and cool, and it showed great potential for the guy.
But I know nothing about The A-Team and I’m in no hurry to start doing my homework. So right now, this one seems a bit up in the air.
