It was first suggested a few years back that there would be a big screen adaptation made of the hit TV series 24. Then earlier this year it was revealed that 20th Century Fox had rejected the script, which was written by Billy Ray, as they didn’t feel it was strong enough or compelling enough.
At the time Kiefer Sutherland said, "It's a very difficult thing to take something that you've done for eight years and almost 200 episodes, and try and find a story that's going to be unique and yet also service the history of the show. That's to be expected." However since then it has been confirmed that it is back on again.
Brian Grazer, who will be producing on the movie tweeted in April, "Got off the phone Keifer yesterday and we are very excited about producing the 24 movie for next year." So with work on 24 the movie set to start next year, fans can look forward to a 2013 release date. Unless it suffers further hick ups between now and then.
