Liam Neeson leading The A-Team!

Insert your own “we love it when a plan comes together” gag here – Liam Neeson is negotiating to play John "Hannibal" Smith in The A-Team.

He’s busy negotiating money terms with 20th Century Fox now, but if the deal works out, he’ll be bringing his particular set of skills to Joe Carnahan’s set some time in late August for the shoot.

And no doubt thanks to the hefty success of The Hangover – which scored a surprise upset at this weekend’s box office when the final figures shoved it ahead of Pixar’s Up – Bradley Cooper is officially in talks.

Despite earlier denials of IESB’s scoop, he’s definitely up for the role of Templeton “Faceman” Peck, the smooth-talking, lady-charming member of the team.

All they really need now is a Murdock and a BA Baracus, though Terminator Salvation’s Common might nab that one…
