Bradley Cooper Says Sequel to 'The A-Team' Probably Won't Happen

Between two of the ensemble action team movies that came out last year, I enjoyed The A-Team slightly more than The Losers. However, apparently audiences in general may not have loved it enough as Empire recently chatted with Bradley Cooper who had some disparaging news about the potential for a sequel to the 2010 summer blockbuster. The UK cinema magazine proclaimed their love for the film when asking about a potential sequel to which Cooper replied, "I loved it too. But unfortunately, outside of you, a few of your friends and myself, there just wasn't enough revenue to supply a second installment of that franchise.”
Though Cooper may have underestimated the audience numbers a bit (the film made about $100 million worldwide) the really issue was that the film cost about $110 million to produce. While the numbers certainly aren't shameful, it's just not up to summer blockbuster standards. Empire points out that Liam Neeson has been more hopeful about a sequel saying, "Well, there's nothing planned at the minute, but the studios certainly aren't saying no. I personally would love to get on the horse again, you know? With Bradley and Sharlto and Rampage - we all would. But with the studios and the studio system it's a question of dollars and cents." So no matter how much some of you would love it, a plan for a sequel doesn't seem to be coming together anytime soon. Disappointed?
