Carnahan, Scott Launch “The A-Team”

Fox’s feature film based on the classic 80’s TV series “The A-Team” is finally taking off after many months of difficulty.

Joe Carnahan (“Smokin’ Aces,” “Narc”) is in negotiations to direct while Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free Productions are coming on board as producers alongside show creator Stephen J. Cannell reports the trades.

The classic series told the adventures of a group of US Army Special Forces on the run for a crime they didn’t commit who become mercenaries that help those who need it.

John Singleton was last attached to the film but ultimately left after casting issues stalled the project for over a year.

The project, written by Skip Woods, is currently set for a June 11th 2010 release date.
