After a rumor posted on IESB.net last month was systematically denied, The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed that Bradley Cooper, star of the Warner Bros. comedy hit The Hangover, is in talks to play Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck in Joe (Smokin’ Aces) Carnahan’s take on the Stephen J. Cannell ’80s television show The A-Team.
Like the show, the movie is about a group of former war vets on the run from the military after being framed, having adventures along the way. The screenplay for the screen version has been written by the Wanted team Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, and it already has a release date of June 11, 2010, although they still have to find actors to play the other three members of the team, team leader Hannibal, B.A. Baracus and Howling Mad Murdock.
Some may remember the original IESB story from when the site cornered Cooper at the junket for The Hangover, which the actor then denied later.
