There’s been talk of a 24 movie for a while now.
But, finally, Kiefer Sutherland seems to have twisted Fox’s arm enough to force the studio to hire a writer for the project.
Step in Billy Ray, best known for contributing words to the scripts of last year’s cinematic State Of Play and Jodie Foster’s Flightplan.
What of the ticking clock? According to the producers, the film will be “a two-hour representation of a day”. Uh, so just like any other movie, then.
The plot’s reportedly set in Europe, though insiders have told Variety that there are “a number of factors influencing how quickly [the film] moves ahead, including the fate of the TV show”.
Also, will Jack even survive the show’s eighth (and possibly ninth) day? If there’s a potential movie franchise in the works, we’re sure his life’s pretty safe.
