Kiefer Sutherland talks up “24” movie’s future
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Kiefer Sutherland continued to bang the drum for a feature-length “24” thriller while making the rounds on daytime television Tuesday morning.
“Yes, there will be a ‘24’ movie,” Sutherland told ABC’s “Good Morning America” when asked about the project’s future. (Credit ComingSoon’s Edward Douglas for being in front of his TV and paying attention.) You might remember that the oft-discussed film seemed to have stalled a few months back because 20th Century Fox was unhappy with the script.
But Sutherland, who was promoting his Broadway appearance in “That Championship Season,” kept carrying the torch as he made the morning-show crawl.
“We hopefully will start next January, and I think Tony Scott is one of the directors that has expressed great interest in doing it and he would be fantastic, so I’m very excited about that,” Sutherland added on Live with Regis and Kelly.
This could be empty talk. A lot needs to happen to get “24” back on track, and the longer the show is off the airwaves, the weaker the demand is for a feature-length story. (I’m looking at you, “Arrested Development.”) We’ll see what happens.
