John Singleton Directing A-Team Movie?

Does he pity the fool?

Break those Chevy Astro 7 vans, mohawks, and Members Only jackets out of mothballs — the A-Team movie may have found itself a director!

According to IESB, 20th Century Fox has set its sights on John Singleton to direct the big-screen adaptation of the NBC series. The original A-Team, which ran for five seasons in the ’80s, centered on a group of Vietnam vets who ran around doing good deeds while on the run for “a crime they didn’t commit” — a premise the film will update by making the team’s members veterans of the Gulf War.

The A-Team movie has been in production for years — at one point, it was said to be on target for a 2002 release, and the studio was rumored to be pursuing Ving Rhames, Jim Carrey, Christian Bale, and Mel Gibson to round out the cast. (Moral of the story: take A-Team rumors with a big ol’ grain of salt.)

If Singleton really does wind up signing onto the project, it could signal that Fox has decided to make the adaptation more of a straight-ahead action film, rather than an update on the series’ over-the-top action comedy. Either way, you know what this report means — start naming your dream Team cast!
