Recent reports about a possible “24” movie have focused on obstacles standing in the way of the project, including the rejection of the script by Fox, as we reported earlier this month. But now the star of “24,” Kiefer Sutherland, has set the record straight, breaking the news that the project is going ahead, ExtraTV.com reports.
Sutherland announced that the "24" movie will begin filming later this year, according to the report.
Sutherland, who’s currently preparing to appear on Broadway in a revival of the play "That Championship Season," told Extra that he expects to be before cameras for "24" in eight months.
Sutherland talked about the challenge in trying to find the right story after almost 200 episodes of the TV show, and said the producers will “try to find a story that’s going to be unique and yet service the history of the show as well."
