Kiefer Sutherland Says ‘24’ Movie Shoots in January

Actor Kiefer Sutherland appeared on the morning talk shows Good Morning America and Live with Regis and Kelly to discuss his new Broadway play The Winning Season. While there, he also confirmed that a 24 movie is actually happening.

Here is what Kiefer Sutherland had to say on Good Morning America.

"Yes. There is going to be a 24 Movie."

Here is what Kiefer Sutherland said on Live with Regis and Kelly.

"People come up to me and say they love the show. Its funny, because I don't feel like we finished. Its still such a presence in my life. There will (be a movie). We will hopefully start next January, and Tony Scott is one of the directors who has expressed great interest in doing it. I think he would be fantastic. I am really excited to do that."

Click on the video players below to see what he had to say about the project. The 24 news occurs at the 5:30 mark in the first video, and right at the beginning of the second video.




Back in December we reported that 20th Century Fox passed on the script for the 24 movie, which was written by Billy Ray. We also reported last month that director Tony Scott is interested in reviving the project, and it seems he still might be involved, according to Kiefer Sutherland's comments today.

Kiefer Sutherland also http://movieweb.com/kiefer-sutherland-says-24-movie-shooting-early-next-year/revealed last month that the script is currently being developed, although it isn't clear who is on board as a screenwriter.

24 is in development .

            They start production next January? Sh*t, we'd see season 9 and 10 by then.

              Good, because the way the show ended, it demanded a movie to finish it off.

                The quote from Kiefer says "Hopefully" not "We will shoot in next January" What is wrong with you Movieweb? You can't even read quotes correctly?

                      Will the film cover a whole day? Like jumping in between hours ? Any ideas?

                            Season 1-5 were great! 6-8 were ok. 24 really shook up the way people think about TV. They broke a lot of rules and succeed with a format many had failed at before. To the day that I die season 1 of 24 is one of the best seasons of TV EVER.

                            @mattbierwagen

                            If you never liked the show and never watched it how do you know if should or shouldn't have a movie? I'm not getting upset at your opinion but it just doesn't seem logical.

                            And I don't think Tony has an oscar in mind, he wants to make solid entertaining movies, you can't fault him for that.

                            I am STOKED for this!

                              @mattbierwagen Tony Scott doesn't need the Oscar. He still makes great movies every few years. That is all I ask for.

                                  @mattbierwagen well 24 has lasted 8 seasons and a tv movie. the fans love it and want to see it happen. 24 has a HUGE fan base. and Tony Scott is just a fan of the show. i think he would be a great director for a 24 movie

                                    @pjwolsker nope i just never liked the show that much and i certainly don't think it needs a movie. Besides, Tony Scott tries and tries to become a better director but its because of stuff like this that he will never get his oscar.
