Jack Will Be Back
There is going to be a 24 movie, and it will begin filming in January 2012 – that’s what Kiefer Sutherland, the man who played CTU agent Jack Bauer for eight seasons – reported Feb. 22 on Live! with Regis and Kelly. For scores of 24 fans who have been hoping for the series to move to the big screen, Sutherland’s announcement was welcome news – especially after the 24 film script had reportedly been rejected by Fox last year and 24‘s executive producer Howard Gordon indicated the film was stalled. "People come up to me and they say that they miss the show," Sutherland told Live hosts Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, "and I still don’t feel like we finished. It’s still such a presence in my life." Sutherland added that Tony Scott (Unstoppable, True Romance) is expected to direct the film.
