Finally a directing name has positively boarded "The A-Team", 20th Century Fox's big screen version of NBC's popular series in the '80s of the same name.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker John Singleton has confirmed to USA TODAY that he is indeed set to direct the project, which creator of the original series Stephen J. Cannell is producing. Statement was made during his attendance at the premiere of Denzel Washington-directed "The Great Debaters" in Hollywood on Tuesday, December 11.

Shockingly remarked that he has no intention to give cameos to the original cast, Singleton further admitted that he currently is still searching for the right one to play B.A. Baracus, saying "We've got everybody in town wanting to be in it." As for how the character will look like in the film, the Los Angeles native described that his B.A. will "definitely" sport a Mohawk but no gold chains, which he believes are so "passe."
