Today we have a couple of first looks for you lucky Screen Rant readers: a first look at the new A-Team, and also our first look at the costume Seth Rogen will be donning to play the masked superhero, The Green Hornet.
We recently gave you the first look at the new A-Team van on the Vancouver set of the upcoming movie adaptation of the classic ’80s TV series. And today – thanks to ComingSoon.net – we have our very first look at Liam Neeson (as Hannibal), Bradley Cooper (as Faceman), Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (as B.A. Baracus) and District 9‘s Sharlto Copley (as Murdock). It’s not the greatest of photos (I think we’re a few months away from official, high quality shots) but it nonetheless serves as our first look at the new Team.
The photo was either taken during a scene in progress, or UFC fighter Quinton Jackson is trying to mentally prepare for a scene about to shoot (maybe he’s nervous about the daunting task of filling Mr. T’s shoes!). As for the look of the cast as a whole – nothing to get worried about in terms of them “ruining” one of the most well known TV shows of the last 26 years. There’s still time for them to drop the ball, I realize, but so far so good in my eyes.
Take a look:
Along with Neeson, Cooper, Jackson and Copley, The A-Team is also set to star Jessica Biel as an Army General (and an ex-lover of Cooper’s Faceman) and Watchmen‘s Patrick Wilson as some sort of CIA operative. It is being directed by Joe Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces, Narc) and is written by Michael Brandt, Derek Haas and Skip Woods.
Next and last up we have our first look at the costume Seth Rogen will be wearing as The Green Hornet. Sadly, we don’t get a look of Rogen actually donning the costume, but rather what is presumably his stuntman (I know Rogen has shed the pounds recently, but…). We’ve already seen what Kato will look like (also by way of a stuntman), but now you can take a look at the clothes our titular masked hero will be wearing:
As a bonus, here’s a video from the set of The Green Hornet from Splash (thanks to Cinemablend). Explosions and, “a bulldozer being dropped on a car,” is what you’ll see. Take a look:

UPDATE: Some set photos giving us our first look at Seth Rogen in costume as The Green Hornet have appeared online at Splash News. Check out one of the photos below:

Along with Rogen as the titular hero and Jay Chou as his sidekick, Kato, The Green Hornet also stars Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos and possibly Inglourious Basterds baddie, Christoph Waltz (replacing the previously attached Nicolas Cage). The script was written by Rogen and his Superbad co-writer Evan Goldberg, and the film is being directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).
What do you think of our first looks at both the new A-Team cast and Seth Rogen in The Green Hornet‘s costume? Do both of them look as you hoped?
Both The A-Team and The Green Hornet are currently filming, with The A-Team set to hit theaters on June 11th, 2010, and The Green Hornet (after being moved) is set for a December 17th, 2010 release.
