The Boyz n the Hood film maker had signed to direct the picture, which was scheduled for release in June 2009.
But Daily Variety reports that Singleton cancelled his contract when the film was moved back a year to 2010, so Fox movie bosses could concentrate on an Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel.
An A-Team movie has long been rumoured with a number of high profile stars touted to take on the roles made famous by George Peppard (Colonel John 'Hannibal' Smith ), Mr. T (Sergeant Bosco 'B.A' Baracas), Dirk Benedict (Lieutenant Templeton 'Faceman' Peck) and Dwight Schultz (Captain H.M. Murdock).
