    (Tentatively) Woohoo! I've seen this movie move in and out of development hell more than once so I'm cautiously exited to see it farther along than ever before. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I had read somewhere online recently that there were talks going on with Ice Cube for the role of B.A.,but nothing is confirmed yet.If I can recall where I read this at,I will post a link to it.

    I read that, too, on EW.com I think. But the story I read isn't so much about talks are going on for him to be in it but more of him talking about how he wants to be in it. I think he'd be a really poor choice for B.A.

    Other names I had seen mentioned online for the role of B.A. were Michael Clarke Duncan and Ving Rhames.The IMDB.com site has posted some (rumored) information on this project too.According to IMDB,Woody Harrelson is rumored to have the role of Hannibal as of now.I'm still looking around online to see if I can track down some of the other articles I have read about this.As it stands now,almost everything seems to be rumors and speculation,with the three exceptions being 20th Century Fox owning the rights to the film,John Singleton directing and the street date of June 12,2009.Of course,that info is subject to change too. :)

    I was wrong that I read about the movie on ew.com, it was an E! story I saw linked on Yahoo news. Here it is...
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/eonline/200...fae133659f1;_ylt=AtEQLKuMUsJd9hLoVnWy5c0wFxkF
    FTA:
    "Singleton did allow that he "really, really want" Woody Harrelson to play "Howling Mad" Murdoch, the sanity challenged pilot given life on the TV series by Dwight Schultz.

    In the interview, conducted in January, Singleton sounded a lot like a man who's been a little bit hounded by fans demanding to know who's going to play Mr. T.

    "Nobody is playing Mr. T—the character's name is B.A. Baracus," the filmmaker reminded.

    And, no, before you bother Mr. Singleton again, B.A. Baracus hasn't been cast yet, either. Ice Cube, however, has thrown his Mohawk into the ring. "

    It's been awhile since this thread has been visited/updated.It appears that Bruce Willis' name is now popping up as an apparent possibility for the 'Hannibal' role in the film.

    According to Entertainment Weekly,the film is still on schedule for the June 12,2009 release date to theaters.

    If this little tidbit of info is true,all I can say is that 20th Century Fox has done some kind of job keeping this project "under wraps". :)

    I would SO watch this movie if/when it gets made. Nick at Nite no Kamisama, don't let this be like every other tv-show made movies as of late.
