Kiefer Sutherland'24' fans still waiting for that much-rumored-about movie should probably let out that collective breath before something bad happens -- it's probably not going to happen any time soon now that Kiefer Sutherland has officially signed on to star in a new pilot.

According to TV Line, the man formerly known as Jack Bauer will star in the Fox drama pilot 'Touch.' From 'Heroes' creator Tim Kring and 20th Century Fox TV, the pilot is Kring's first foray into television since the cancellation of 'Heroes' last year.

Sutherland will play a father who "discovers that his autistic, mute son can predict events before they happen."

Kiefer SutherlandIn news that could spell doom for the much-rumored '24' movie, it's been announced that star Kiefer Sutherland is thinking about heading back to TV drama.

According to deadline.com he's in talks to take the lead role in 'Touch,' the new drama pilot from 'Heroes' creator, Tim Kring, and 20th Century Fox TV. It marks Kring's first new on-spec script since 'Heroes' was canceled back in May 2010.

Update: Yup, That '24' Movie is Still a Go

Kiefer SutherlandI'm not talking about a TV movie a la '24: Redemption,' I'm talking about an adventure that Jack Bauer will have on the big screen. TV Guide is reporting that a screenwriter has been hired to write the '24' movie. Billy Ray, who wrote the movies 'Shattered Glass,' 'State of Play,' the remake of 'Westworld' as well as many episodes of the mid-90s sci-fi series 'Earth 2,' is going to do the screenplay for the movie.

Of course, since this is a big screen movie of a small screen show, they have to do something a little "larger," so Jack won't be saving Los Angeles or New York or even Ottumwa, Iowa. This movie will be set in London, which means Jack will have to get used to saving the world in 24 hours several hours ahead of when he did it here in the United States. Also, any car chases or car explosions will now take place on the other side of the road.

The studio has hired Billy Ray ('Shattered Glass'; 'State of Play') to write the project, based on a storyline that he reportedly pitched himself.

But don't get too excited: The film version may be contingent on a number of key factors, including whether or not '24' returns for a ninth season on Fox.
