Is it finally time for a 24 Movie to happen? It could be.
Imagine Entertainment — perhaps buoyed by the positive buzz generated by Fox’s 24: Live Another Day revival — is kicking around a new feature idea. Imagine Chairman Brian Grazer is said to be particularly keen on the pitch, which has yet to be brought to 20th Century Fox. Last year Kiefer Sutherland spoke of the project: “The film’s an ongoing situation,” he said. “There’s always an opportunity to do that.”
“I loved this year’s season of 24,” Fox Networks Group Chairman CEO Peter Rice said in July. “I’ve always been a fan. We haven’t had a specific conversation about it coming back yet, but I’m sure we will in the future. It’s a wonderful franchise. When you look at the show itself, it has many more stories to tell. I think we need to sit down and talk to the creators.”
