that the long-rumored 24
movie may finally become a reality. The script is being written by Mark Bomback
, who is expected to turn the script into the studio by the end of the year. Tony Scott was previously said to be attached to direct, but no longer is; instead, the studio has a list of five directors - none named in the article - they are looking at. 24th Century Fox's goal is to start production around April.
I was a big fan of the show during its first few seasons, and I even kept watching right up through the series finale even though the show started its downward slide at least as early as season four. I used to think a jump to film would be a great thing, but after being more or less satisfied with the way the series closed, I'm more ambivalent now about this possibility.
