FOX has confirmed further details of its Prison Break revival and revealed a rebooted 24 has a pilot order -but without ‘Jack Bauer.’
The news comes just ahead of FOX’s own X-Files revival.
Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are all confirmed to reprise the roles of brothers Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows on Prison Break (the death of ‘Michael Schofield’ will be addressed.). The original producing team of creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead are all aboard for the event series, and Scheuring will again write and showrun the event series, now touted as 9 episodes.
Exec Producers Howard Gordon, Manny Coto and Evan Katz are all back for the new incarnation of 24, said to be dubbed 24: Legacy.
It isn’t expected to include any returning cast, with the lead character said to be an African-American in his 20s.
The Hollywood Reporter tips it will revolve around a military hero recently returned to the US who teams up with the CTU agency.
Stephen Hopkins is also on board to helm the pilot.
