'24' Movie Hits a Snag as Fox Rejects Script EW

Fox was careful to end the TV series "24" with a cliffhanger that left the door open for Jack Bauer to continue his counter-terrorist efforts on the big screen, but Fox is not happy with the "24" script, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Screenwriter Billy Ray's script was rejected by the studio, according to the story. Producer Howard Gordon confirmed that the project has been frozen for now, although director Tony Scott and star Kiefer Sutherland are still interested in doing a movie version of "24."

"I was disappointed [Fox] passed on the script but I'm certainly hopeful that the movie will get made at some point," Gordon said, adding, “I do think there is more life in Jack Bauer.”
