Re: "24" movie moving forward

Now Jack Bauer can travel over a larger area. He gets on a plane and time jumps forward and real time could start again.

Re: "24" movie moving forward

So...Tony Scott was going to direct?

Shame. He's one great director. Top Gun...Days of Thunder...Unstoppable...True Romance....

Hm...I wonder: would Quentin Tarantino be interested? Because tings like "moral ambiguity" and "revenge" are right up his alley....

Re: "24" movie moving forward

I wonder if they'll take an all-or-nothing approach and kill off Bauer. Better to burn out than fade away, as they say. Anyway, given the tendency to fast-forward between seasons, he should be pushing fifty or so by the end of Day Eight.

I could see Scott doing a 24 movie, on the basis of entries on his CV like Man On Fire or Crimson Tide. And we might have got Val Kilmer or Mickey Rourke as baddies!

Much as I love QT, I don't see him doing a 24 movie, nor do I think he'd be right for it. For one thing, I think he'd want to do his own stylistic take on it. He's said that he wouldn't do a comic strip adaptation, as he'd have to make the character his own and would just piss off purists. So I can't see him making a 24 movie without radically changing the formula. Can you imagine Jack Bauer discussing pop culture or lots of close-up shots of Chloe's feet?

As regards Jack's age, I think the writers have said something along the lines of he is always whatever age Keifer is. So, for example, in season 1 (first airing in November 2001), Keifer would have been a few months short of his 35th birthday, so Jack would have been this age too. But, as 24 fans know, the gaps between seasons were longer in 'series time' than they were in our time (most notably in between seasons 6-7, which jumped 4 years). So while Jack should have been about 50-ish by season 8 (it aired in January 2010 but I'm too lazy to work out all the gaps between the seasons in 24 time), according to the writers, he'd have been the same age as Keifer, i.e. 44.

Re: "24" movie moving forward

^ Interesting. Jack in Eastern Europe? Given that the Russians were after him at the end of the series, you'd think that was the last place he'd go.

I read somewhere else that the movie will pick up 6 months after the end of Season 8.

Europe...because that's where ALL the terror is today.

Jack should be fighting in the Middle East.

Last we saw Jack he was being chased by the Russians. I think that the open ended nature of the series finale demands that the movie pick up with that. Before Jack can fight terrorists he needs to get the Russian monkey off his back.

Jack against the Russian president and all of the Russian security services - that would be awesome!

Yeah, it makes sense for him to go after the Russians. AFAIR, even the Russian president was involved in all the crap that went down in S8.

The series ended up with Jack on the run from the US and the Russians. He's no longer an anti-terror agent, he's a fugitive. Why would he go to the middle East, where as a white man he'd stand out a mile?

Anyway, given that the UK and mainland Europe have seen terror in the form of 7/7, the Madrid bombings and other atrocities over the last decade, your point is a little misconceived.

Re: "24" movie moving forward

Can you really expect the movie to directly continue the Season Eight storyline, though? This movie is going to be designed to be a major blockbuster seen by the masses, not for the 9 million people still watching the show at the end of its run.

^ I don't really, no. But just picking up in the Middle East doesn't really make a lot of sense either. You'd need to explain why he's there, just as much as you'd need to explain why he's in Eastern Europe.

All we need to know is that Jack Bauer is a former anti-terrorist agent, now on the run, who is hiding out in Eastern Europe. I don't think that's any more confusing than the backstory to, say, The Bourne Identity or Taken.

Re: "24" movie moving forward

Bump!

http://www.deadline.com/2012/03/has-...g-on-24-movie/

Well, seems that there won't be a 24 movie this year, as Fox want Keifer to return to Touch for season 2 and don't want to rush it. Fair enough.

It appears from this article that writer Billy Ray had envisaged a 3-part movie story arc. Would this have encompassed an adventure in Europe and maybe Jack returning to the US to clear his name? Who knows.

The article also suggests that Antione deFuqua was being circled as director. His Tears of the Sun had shades of 24's Redemption tv movie, if you ask me (though TOTS got there first).
