Assignment X recently spoke with 24 executive producer Howard Gordon, who revealed that the 24 movie has been put on indefinite hold.

Screenwriter Billy Ray wrote a script for this big-screen Jack Bauer adventure, although Gordon said Fox passed on his take:

"There was a script, but ultimately it wasn't the right proposition. It wasn't strong enough or compelling enough to the studio obviously to move ahead with it."

However, Gordon revealed that, while he currently isn't involved with the project, an A-list director may be taking over soon:

"The movie is something that right now I'm not engaged or involved in. The rumors are that [director] Tony Scott has an idea that he is going to run it by or has run it by Kiefer Sutherland. I don't know what the status of it is."
