Kiefer Sutherland optimistic the 24 movie will start shooting next winter

01.21.2011

Good news 24 fans. Despite recent word that the promised 24 film might not get made, the star of the show, Kiefer Sutherland has come out with an actual time table of when they're supposed to start shooting, and has additional comments about the ever-changing script.

"We won’t start shooting for about eight months," Sutherland says, putting the start date around September/October-ish. As for the script which seems to be in a constant state of flux?

"And I think it will up until the day we start shooting, and probably from that point forward, too. It’s a very difficult thing to take something that you’ve done for eight years, almost 200 episodes, and try and find a story that’s going to be unique and yet service the history of the show as well. That is to be expected. So we start shooting hopefully by next December or January."

You just added a few more months there Kiefer.

So pretty much, he's saying it's hard to make a 24 movie, but he's determined to do it. I actually thought the team did a pretty good job with 24 REDEMPTION, the made-for-TV two-hour spot that was a bridge between seasons, though it wasn't quite on the epic-ness scale that a theatrical 24 film could be. Imagine Jack Bauer free of a TV budget. There'll be so many explosions it will make Michael Bay cry!

But nine (or twelve) months is a long time off, and much can happen in that time. I'm going to be highly disappointed if this film goes the way of Arrested Development and turns into an "it's coming, we promise!" string of well-intentioned falsehoods that give us unwarranted hope for years.

I really hope we get a 24 movie. Would be great to see one of the greatest characters to ever grace a television screen on the big screen for one more adventure.

I'm not sure if I would want Jack to die. I always thought if he were, it would be done with him exchanging his life for his daughter (ala Man On Fire).

I think Bauer SHOULD be killed in the movie. Blaze of glory, becoming some sort of martyr, sacrificing himself, and so on. Plus that would prevent an inevitable sequel that would surely suck. Go Kiefer!

I used to be into 24 big time for the 1st 4 seasons & then it just became silly & almost campy with people you thought were dead are still alive & it became unbelievable that all of that could happen just in one freaking day. However I am all for a 24 movie if done right & i would have no issue with Jack Bauer getting killed off either cause they always make him out to be almost Superman like. I do hope they get Tony Scott to do it also since this is perfect material for him.

Forget the real time stuff and use the characters to make one kick ass action film! I'm all for this one.

If seasons 6, 7 and 8 are any indication, the movie would suck donkey balls. Just leave it alone.

As much as I would want this to happen, I'm not very optimistic. One can hope though.
