    Quoted From Collider:

    "A feature film adaptation of the Fox series 24 has been promised for quite some time now. Originally the plan was to head into the movie directly after the show’s final season, but it’s been a bit of a tough road to production with numerous stops and starts. Deadline now reports that things have picked back up once again and the goal is to start filming after star Kiefer Sutherland’s availability opens up next April. Fox passed on the original script by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), but the latest draft by Mark Bomback (The Wolverine) is set to be turned in by the end of the year, after which the search will begin for a director.

    Tony Scott was previously attached to direct, but he’s no longer involved. Producer Brian Grazer and the studio have “about five directors in mind” to take over the job, though Deadline doesn’t specify who they’re looking at. The original take had Jack Bauer heading to Europe, but we don’t know if Bomback’s take maintains that general plotline or takes the film in another direction. Whether or not this spring start date will stick is anyone’s guess, but as of now everyone’s favorite torturer seems poised to grace the silver screen sooner rather than later."


    FINALLY!!!

    While itd be impractical to do a whole film in real time and still have a bunch of cool things happen, It would be nice to have the climax and the ending in real time.

    This is such great news IMO - I loved 24 and always thought that they should do a movie. It just seemed like a 'no-brainer'.

    Besides, we need to see more Jack Bauer kicking butt!!!

    Indeed. I believe I heard a couple of years back (when the concept of a 24 film was first thrown around), that the first half of the film would be "movie time" (in which typical events occur in the span of minutes like every other film), and that the last hour would be "real time."



    But I think I can sum up the picture in two sentences of dialogue:







    "WHERE'S THE BOMB!?!"


    "DAMMIT!!!"

    I don't think a two hour adventure in the same format is that unrealistic, but a sped up time line in the same format would also work.

    They did do it with the redemption tv movie, but I feel that I'd want more story unveiling than could happen in two hours. But the end Definitley needs to be in real time.


    I can imagine sitting in the theater when the screen goes black, and the words come over the screen...

    "the following takes place between....events occur in real time"


    I'm still sad they killed off Rack Bauer.

    Cool! My demands are that Elisha Cuthbert be in it, and be running around in a tanktop. Also no ridiculous White House invasions, which caused me to stop watching that season.

    ***** JAMZ :D

    I always thought a cool concept would be to do a whole "season" of 24 at the movie theater with a 2-hour movie premiering each month in real time. Would kinda bring back the feel of the old serials.

    I'm happy this is finally officially happening.

    Cuthbert is fun to look at but her character annoyed the crap out of me. How many times can one character be kidnapped?

    YES! According to Keifer, filming will start at the end of April and the film will be a direct continuation from the finale set only 6 months after the series wrapped!

    I loved this series initially, but somewhere around season 4 it became obvious that they stopped planning out seasons in advace and just started writing episode to episode. Because of this, any aspect of the "real time" format dissapeared. It became less about a singular plotline, and more about how many "twists" they could cram into every episode.

    The last straw for me came when a nuclear bomb went off in the middle of LA, and an hour later life in the city was back to normal. And then when Jack's brother died, and he didn't care at all. Theres being a badass character, and then there is just being ridiculously inhuman. Jack started as one, and ended up as the other.

    Id give anything to hear jack say;

    "WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!!"



    I do hate what they did to Tony on season 7, really * me off. Either keep him a hero or leave him dead. Would of been great to see him on the big screen having Jack's back.

    This show died years ago. What will a movie do for it?

    First off, the movie was in the talks for several years. Second of all there is still a fanbase large enough to warrant a movie for it. And third of all: Season 8 had a very "open" ending that has hinted towards more 24 related content, so the story is not over. :love

    Bring back Nina Meyers for the movie. Yeah, that'll be cool.

    But with Tony it was plausible, with Nina, well Jack was the one who shot her repeatedly. :lol

    :lol Not in my book :lol

    About as plausible as having bring back Nina with, "Jack your weapon was loaded with blanks!"

    But hey the show is a guilty pleasure.

    I used to love torturing my friend who is a retired U.S.S.S. Agent who Protected 4 Presidents.

    That show used to drive him up the wall! :lol

    My other main concern with Nina is that it's been too long to bring her back, Tony was only "dead" for two seasons... Nina has been dead since... S3? Or was it S4?

    ^^^ I read this earlier. Seems these things always come down to money. I like that they don't explicitly state that it's over, but for all intents and purposes it is. Especially if Touch turns out to be as huge as some are predicting.

    If they showed it in real time, they could call it "2"

    I don't think I can watch a movie for an entire day. Especially if I drink a lot of coke when it first starts.
