Have Hannibal and Faceman been found for A-Team movie?

It seems that Taken star Liam Neeson is in talks to play Col John ‘Hannibal’ Smith in the upcoming film version of the A-team.  Nothing in concrete yet but the negotations  are ongoing as are those of Bradley Cooper who is in talks to play Faceman.

I have to admit I had no idea who could take on the role of Hannibal but Liam Neeson is not a name that would have sprung to mind.  The more I think about this casting news the more I like it. I thought Liam was absolutely bad ass in Taken and if this is the kind of Hannibal they are going for then I’m good with that. I also think Bradley is a good choice for Face. I’m looking forward to seeing who gets cast as BA and Murdoch as so far I’m liking the way the casting is going.

The film is due out June 2010.

I’m not bothered that they’ve dropped some of the campier elements of the show but I hope  a little of the fun of the series stays in. There is mention of wanting the film to have a tone that’s reminiscent of Oceans Eleven and Mission Impossible and that sounds fine to me.

An A-team movie, if done right, has all the ingredients to make for a great summer blockbuster.
