Don’t let the title of this post fool you! No, there won’t be a sequel to the 2010 A-Team movie, but Joe Carnahan who directed the film released what would of been “BA Baracus” new ride if the squeal had actually happen.
Joe Carnahan on his Twitter account released an image of what the van was going to look like in the sequel. In the 2010 movie BA’s van which was just an updated version of the classic 1983 GMC Vandura that was featured on the original 1980s television series was destroyed. The image below is what our four fugitives on the run from the U.S. Government would of been riding around in.
For me personally I kinda like the look of the vehicle and it would have reflected the personality of Quinton Jackson’s “BA Baracus”, but I’m not so sure that the hard core fans of the television show would of approved. It’s also a bit of a mute point seeing as the chances of an A-Team 2 actually coming to life are slim to none and slim has already left.
The film itself only managed to make $77 million domestically, while internationally the total was bumped up by a $100 million, but still wasn’t enough for 20th Century Fox to move forward with a sequel seeing that the first one cost the studio $110 million to make. It also didn’t help that on it’s opening weekend it lost at the box office to the “Karate Kid” remake.
I liked the The A-Team movie when it was released in 2010 and was disappointed that the movie didn’t do as well as I had hoped. It was one of the few television shows that have been turned into movies that I felt didn’t make a mockery of the original show it self.
Bradley Cooper as “Face” and Liam Neeson as “Hannibal” I thought were perfectly cast and was part of what made the movie enjoyable. Was the movie perfect? No, but it was a fun and enjoyable action movie that I would of liked to have seen what might of been.
