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.

24 movieAt long last, Twentieth Century Fox is moving forward with plans to bring '24' to the big screen.

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.
