It wasn’t too long ago that the big news was John Singleton signing on to do an A-Team movie, and for a while it seemed like every day a new story would come out about Ice Cube or someone wanting to be in it. And everyone was all like, “Yay, an A-Team movie, that sounds great! Let’s all drink the Kool-Aid and wash it down with a huge turd!”
Fast forward to today. Fox put out their release schedule, and A-Team has moved from June 2009 to June 2010. Singleton is off the project, leaving it without a director or cast. Which puts it that much closer to non-existence where it belongs.
Other stuff on Fox’s schedule? They Came from Upstairs with some chick from High School Musical, Tooth Fairy starring the Rock, and I shit you not, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. You just know there’s someone in that building with a Masters from Princeton whose job is punching up a script about singing, poop-eating chipmunks. Fingers crossed for a fire.
