Jessica Biel is locking in a deal to play a surprising role in the new A-Team film - the general chasing the heroes down.
Yes, according to Variety, she's signing on as a former lover of Bradley Cooper's Face, and the woman tracking the former special ops team-turned-do-gooding mercenaries.
One of those mercenary types is Captain HM "Howlin' Mad Murdock, the pilot of the team and a man driven to weird flights of fantasy and playing strange characters.
As has been rumoured by the team at Blackfilm, he'll likely be played by District 9's Sharlto Copley, who is now in final negotiations to join Copper, Liam Neeson as team leader John "Hannibal" Smith and fighter Quinton "Rampage" Johnson as BA Baracus.
Biel's taking on a role played by blokes in the TV show is an intriguing one - we just hope her connection to Face won't be played for some turgid relationship drama a la GI Joe's Baroness.
Joe Carnahan is about to kick off directing the film in Vancouver, with the plot apparently carrying a more serious tone than the fun TV series…
Is Biel a good choice? Speak!
