Jessica Biel and Sharlto Copley in talks to join A-Team. Jessica Biel and District 9’s Sharlto Copley are in talks to join “A-Team,” opposite Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Script by Skip Woods, the film will reportedly keep to the premise of the TV series, following four wrongly convicted vets escaping from prison to become do-gooder mercenaries. Copley will portray helicopter pilot Capt. “Howling Mad” Murdock, a role originated by Dwight Schultz in the original series. Biel’s set to play the ex-love of Cooper’s character “Faceman,” the general pursuing the team. Joe Carnahan is directing with Ridley Scott on board to produce.
