UPDATED: The A-Team – Sharlto Copley to be Murdock and Jessica Biel joins the cast

Posted by LiveFor on September 16, 2009

UPDATE 26/11/09 – Now Dirk Benedict has confirmed he has a cameo.

UPDATE: Dwight Schultz has got a cameo in the film

Now there is footage and interviews with the actors. Now the first official photo of the team is out.

Sharlto Copley, the star of this summer’s breakout hit “District 9,” is in final negotiations to portray “Howling Mad” Murdock in Fox’s A-Team feature film. Jessica Biel is also in negotiations to join the production according to THR Heat Vision.

They will join Liam Neeson (Hannibal), Bradley Cooper (Face) and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (BA) to round out the special forces team convicted of a crime they didn’t commit and on the run from government forces. Joe Carnahan is directing the adaptation of the 1980s television show, while Ridley and Tony Scott produce.

Copley seemingly came out of nowhere to star in “District 9,” landing the role in the movie due to childhood friend Neill Blomkamp’s fondness for Copley’s improvisational skills, skills which will be ideally suited to the Murdock character.

Murdock was the wild card of the group, the Army’s best chopper pilot who is also suffering, in an over-the-top manner, from delusions, memory loss, and hallucinations. Dwight Shultz originated the role in the TV series.

Biel would play the former love of Faceman (Cooper), an Army general who is now pursuing the team.

Copley as Murdock is inspired casting in my opinion and great to see him move on from District 9 to this.
