Despite an insane amount of smack spoken between TUF 10 coaches Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson, both men will have to hold off for a bit before they have a chance to bump heads inside the cage, while Rampage wraps up filming on the new A-Team movie. Filling the shoes of the legendary Mr. T, Jackson will star as B.A. Baracus in the big screen version of the 80’s TV show. We take a sneak peak at the official A-Team movie poster, featuring Rampage and the rest of the crew.
Joining Jackson in the film are Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck, Liam Neeson as Col John “Hannibal” Smith and Sharlto Copley as Capt. “Howling Mad” Murdock, rounding off the famous military squad. Currently in production, the new A-Team film is scheduled for a June 11, 2010 release.
Fans of the 80’s A-Team television show will notice a difference in B.A. Baracus’ modern day dress code as Jackson takes a step or two away from Mr. T’s trademark look including gold chains, denim vest, plus white and orange striped knee-high tube socks.
Rumor has it Rampage Jackson could possibly return to UFC action to finally face Rashad Evans once his film duties are finished.
