I've never had my interest in something evaporate so quickly as 24 after it ended. Fox was smart when they began scheduling it in uninterrupted season blocks in the fourth year. Even when the show went of the rails, that provided enough inertia to keep me coming back.

Now, though? I can barely remember the cliffhanger the series ended on (and why did they end it on a cliffhanger again, when they knew it would be cancelled?). Meh.
This.

Though, I would love to see Jack vs. Tony in the movie. That might be enough to get me to go to the theater.

Kiefer Sutherland Furious as Fox Pulls Plug on '24' Movie

The movie based on the conspiracy-terrorism-action show was in pre-production and set to start shooting next month, but has now ground to a halt because Fox will greenlight a budget no higher than $30 million, while Sutherland and producer Brian Grazer feel the budget needs to be in the low $40s at its tightest.

A Fox spokesman confirmed that the movie was on hold, and said it was related to timing.

"We're still working on a script, and hope to make [it] when Kiefer next has time," said the spokesman. "But this all came down to timing, and seven weeks is not enough time to prep a movie like this."

But insiders on the project refuted that version of the situation. According to them, the Fox television star feels insulted that Fox has offered him a relatively measly salary of $1 million to do the movie. Update: A Fox insider says that this fee was proposed, but it came in the context of negotiations over the fee, which is weighted toward a reward on the back end. In another round, the insider said, Fox offered $2 million.

Sutherland, who has helped Fox make hundreds of millions of dollars off the hit show and is represented by CAA, wanted $5 million. (He is also the producer.)
I knew that there was more to the story than just the schedule for Touch which hasn't even gotten a second season yet.

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).


Fuqua.

Antoine Fuqua.

Bump!

I'm resurrecting this thread which is more than anyone seems to be able to do with the movie or tv show. Mr Fuqua (see doubleohfive, I pay attention!) says that it's been cancelled for budgetary reasons. No real surprise I suppose but it would've been nice to see Jack onscreen again.

The longer that it doesn't happen makes me believe that it will never happen. They should just trash the theatrical version and bring the show back at this point. It would probably get better ratings than anything on Fox these days. Kiefer Sutherland is doing Touch and has booked a pilot so he's still willing to do tv. Bring back 24, Fox!

Re: "24" movie moving forward

I'm wondering how long they can keep it up, though. Hasn't Jack Bauer been tortured enough lately? He's like Miles O'Brien.

Re: "24" movie moving forward

I enjoyed 24 throughout its run, but I grew somewhat frustrated with the way they raised the stakes each season. Season 1 was personal, with a threat of assassination and a vendetta against Jack. Season 2 was a nuclear bomb. Season 3 was a weaponized virus, etc. If the real USA went through the sorts of threats that Jack seemingly disarmed each year, police state would not begin to cover it.

I read somewhere that the original intention for the series was a comedy - the hi-jinks that occur in the last 24 hours prior to a wedding, I believe it was. That might be interesting.

I think they might be better doing the odd telemovie but tv studios seem to have abandoned telemovies as a vehicle.
