Sources say a movie version of 24 is being considered again

After the shortened season of 24 subtitled LIVE ANOTHER DAY ended last month, the future for the Kiefer Sutherland action series still seemed ambiguous. Yes, the new run was enjoyed by fans of the previous eight seasons, but the ratings were less than stellar. Still, there was clearly still life in Jack Bauer.

While FOX has yet to commit to a tenth run, shortened or otherwise, for the espionage, action drama, producer Imagine Entertainment may be looking into developing it as a feature film. After the show originally ended back in 2010, there was rampant speculation that it would become a feature film. At one point, Tony Scott was rumored to be involved, prior to his death. Screenwriter Mark Bomback had made script revisions but budgetary concerns shelved the film. Now, with Jack Bauer back in the zeitgeist, maybe the film may happen.

Kiefer Sutherland himself has not committed to another series as he did with TOUCH, nor does he have any major film commitments in the way. The fact that Imagine is shopping for a possible project means there may be a chance we could finally see Jack on the big screen. Maybe that rumored DIE HARD/24 crossover could happen now to boost both franchises?

I am only just now getting into it. Watched Season 2 after finding it in a thrift shop and then went back to Season 1. Oh, Kim and your subplots.

Maybe they could make a new 24 movie and then follow by another season which follow the story after the said movie.

I think a movie could be a good fit for the character/franchise. Even this most recent shorter season had too much filler, relied too much on the same plot twists as every other season, and felt too watered down compared to basic cable shows on AMC or FX. The freedom to veer away from TV ratings and only have to fill two hours would make Jack interesting again.

I thought the latest season of 24 was a breath of fresh air for the franchise and a step in the right direction in terms of less episodes to make a better written, less filler season.

I do hope we get at least one more season and/or a film so we can get closure considering the latest season finale of the show kind of left things wide open.
