Kiefer Sutherland Says ’24′ Movie Script Is Almost Done
"About sixteen months have passed since Fox’s hit action series 24 ended its successful eight season run. Since then, star Kiefer Sutherland and the show’s creators have been asked ad nauseum about a long rumored movie that would continue the story of American hero Jack Bauer who saves the world in 24 hours. Every few months, a little bit more is added to the rumor mill be it a rejected script, release window, possible start date, rumored directors and more. The latest news comes from Sutherland himself who not only spoke about the difficulties in adapting the show for the big screen but said a script is almost done."
"We are coming very close to having a finished script. That’s been the most difficult thing. You have to remember that we have 24 hours to explain the stories in 24 and so trying to condense that into a two-hour film version has been a real shift in gear for us. We were originally trying to make it too big and put too much into it – but once we relaxed, we found out how to tell that story. So yes we definitely do plan on making the film."(via /Film)

'Arrested Development' movie and new TV mini-series planned!
