20th Century Fox's film and TV studios are teaming up to finally bring hit television series "24" to the big screen, which takes Jack Bauer to Europe.
Following this summer's return of Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in the Fox event series 24: Live Another Day, the 24 movie is getting closer to happening.
Imagine Entertainment, the production company run by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, are "kicking around a new feature idea," a take that Imagine chairman Brian Grazer is "particularly keen on." The pitch hasn't been taken to 20th Century Fox yet, and it isn't known if they already have a writer attached or not.Read More

Our report from this week revealed the 24 movie was supposed to start shooting this week, since he just recently wrapped the first season of his new Fox series Touch. If the project moves ahead next year, it will likely be after he wraps on the second season of Touch, if it is picked up by Fox. There is still no director attached yet, although Antoine Fuqua was once considered a front runner for the gig.

All of the major Hollywood studios have recently been tightening their belts, and no big budget movie has been safe from this current trend of penny pinching. The latest casualty is 20th Century Fox's 24, based on the hit Fox series of the same name. The movie is now on indefinite hold, and the reason is one that has been heard a lot lately. The budget was simply too high.
24 will eventually go before the cameras at some point, with a script already completed. The movie was supposed to begin shooting at the end of this month, with star Kiefer Sutherland on hiatus from his new Fox series Touch. It was suspected that the studio was gearing up to name a director, with Antoine Fuqua in the front running. Now, the movie will not move forward until at least 2013.Read More

Screenwriter Mark Bomback (Unstoppable, The Wolverine) will have his draft of the script ready by the end of this year. The studio is currently eyeing five directors to take on this project, although it doesn't seem there is a front runner yet. Back in February, Kiefer Sutherland revealed director Tony Scott was interested in directing 24, but he is no longer attached to the project.Read More
Its been a little bit since we've heard anything about the big screen version of 24, based on Kiefer Sutherland's hit Fox series that ended last year. While out promoting Melancholia, his recent collaboration with Lars von Trier, the actor stated that the movie is still on track, and that after a bit of a speed bump, the script is nearly completed.
Here is what he had to say about 24."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.Read More
