Director Joe Carnahan may have found his Lt. Templeton 'Faceman' Peck for 'The A-Team' movie in the actor who stars as Zachary 'Sack' Lodge in 'Wedding Crashers'.
Bradley Cooper is likely to be the new Face of "The A-Team". IESB got the scoop after meeting the 34-year-old actor in the hallway of the Caesars Palace hotel, Las Vegas, during the press junket for "The Hangover" on Sunday, May 17.
Upon being asked about the speculation, the "Wedding Crashers" actor's response was a mix of surprise and astonishment, saying "That's out already!?". He then added, "Wow. Yeah...its Joe Carnahan's. It's very interesting. It'll be cool. It will be cool see what...He'll make a great movie out of it."
"The A-Team" will be a big screen adaptation to the NBC's popular '80s TV series of the same name. Joe Carnahan has been appointed to direct the film as well as to polish the Skip Woods' script along with writer Brian Bloom. Earlier, IESB insisted Common was considered for the role of B.A. Baracus. "The A-Team" itself may begin its production sometime in June this year for a June 11, 2010 release.
Before being linked to Face, Bradley Cooper has been rumored to potentially star as the titular character in "Green Lantern". However, the "He's Just Not That into You" actor has said during "The Hangover" press junket that the "Green Lantern" speculations were internet rumors and there is no truth of him being Green Lantern or even auditioning for it.
