The New A-Team Include Tyrese?

As we reported several weeks ago, Twentieth Century Fox has distributed the news to Variety that they have assembled a creative team to transform 1980s TV series The A-Team into a summer 2010 film. As we reported, Director John Singleton is out and the studio has set Joe Carnahan to direct and Ridley Scott to produce, with Tony Scott exec producing through their Scott Free banner.

You may also remember we reported that Singleton who used to be attached to this project had too many disagreements with the studio on the direction of the film and left the project, which opened the door for Joe Carnahan. Carnahan will team with Brian Bloom to polish a script by Skip Woods (of G.I. Joe: Rise Of The Cobra to be released this summer). The intention is to start production by June for a June 11, 2010, release.

Because Singleton dropped out of the film, Carnahan started over with not only a new script, but also a new cast. So because of this we hear that all of the talk for this being a starring vehicle for Tyrese Gibson have now ended- for now.

From what I've heard on the "studio inside" Tyrese did not close a deal for the project cause he's to much of an ass to work with but was in the top 3 to be considered. They're still deciding who they want to play Mr.T. Ice cube and his people are clammering for the role. Ice cube??? Hell to the naw!
