The on again-off again feature film version of 24 has been confirmed by Kiefer Sutherland.
When last mooted, the script was rejected by FOX but this week the star confirmed it will begin shooting in 8 months.
Speaking (briefly) about the film, Sutherland said.”It’s a very difficult thing to take something you’ve done for eight years, almost two hundred episodes, and try to find a story that’s going to be unique and yet service the history of the show as well.”
Meanwhile he is heading to the stage to star in a Broadway revival of the play That Championship Season, with Chris Noth (The Good Wife, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Sex and the City).
Update: A FOX publicist has since contradicted Sutherland: “Unfortunately, Kiefer is overly optimistic.
“The project is still in development, with no director attached. All the other details have been reported.”
