Joe Carnahan - Director Reveals No A-team Sequel Plans

Joe Carnahan says there are currently no plans for an 'A-Team' sequel.

The director - who remade the classic 80s TV show for the cinema starring Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel - would like to work on a follow-up movie but is enjoying the freedom of not having to think about it too much yet.

He said: "There's great freedom in having done one and not being linked to do another. Now I'm able to go off and make 'The Grey' and not worry about, 'Oh wait I have to turn in the script for The A-Team sequel in two months or a month'. You know what I mean?

"But because of the time I had with those guys, because it was so wonderful, so much fun and hard - the studio presented it's own set of challenges and problems - but I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It was a blast, man. It's the best job in the world."

Discussing his hopes for the success of the DVD of the movie, Joe hopes audiences will be "sucked" in because the audience was "misjudged" for the theatre release.

He told Collider.com: "I think where we stumbled is when we kind of misjudged what the audience for this film was. But I think what's great about this - traditionally I've had a huge amount of success - certainly with 'Narc' and 'Smokin' Aces' - in that there's always a market after the fact. I particularly said it about 'Smokin' Aces', just watch when this movie's on USA, it'll come on no matter where you are and you'll sit and watch the movie and it happens every time.

"People say 'I was in it, I just started watching it and I got sucked into it' and I'm hoping the same thing happens to 'The A-Team'."
