Deadline reports 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.
