’24′ movie is still a possibility according to Kiefer Sutherland
When ’24: Live Another Day’ was announced as a 12 episode limited series last year. Many fans myself included figured that this special series would take the place of the much discussed ’24′ movie, which had a number of production issues and stalled.
Apparently we all assumed wrong.
In a recent interview posted on Digital Spy Kiefer Sutherland revealed that a movie could well still be a possibility.
“The script for the film is very different,” said Sutherland. “The film is an ongoing situation. There’s always an opportunity to do that.
“But [showrunner Howard Gordon] came up for a 12-episode run of this and this opportunity presented to us first. It’s a fantastic idea. If this ends up causing a film to be made, so be it.”
Production on the new season begins in London in February.
“I’m very nervous without putting ourselves out there,” said Sutherland. “We made eight very strong years. There’s always something in every year that we wish we did better, but I was very proud.
“To open that up again and make 12 episodes and not make them the best 12 we have ever made is frightening. I’m about as anxious and wound up as I’ve been in a long time.”
24: Live Another Day will arrive on Fox in the US in May, with Sutherland reprising his role as Jack Bauer.
In other ’24: Live Another Day’ related news Sky One has picked up the UK television rights for the 12 episode series. At present the cable and satellite channel has not confirmed when they will be showing the series, but chances are they will try and air it some time in May so that UK viewers are able to see it as soon after it US broadcast as is possible.
