“Jack Bauer could be hitting the big screen as soon as later this year, according to various reports.The plans would involve shooting a movie version of 24 this summer, after the current fifth season wraps and before the sixth season airs in 2007 …
… ‘It’s certainly something that I’ve expressed an incredible amount of interest in doing,’ he [Kiefer] said. ‘It is something that Joel, Howard and Bob and I have all talked about. One of the real difficulties, … is that any time they got really close to having a great idea for a film, we needed it for episode 18, so there it went.’
‘I love playing the character and it’s something I care an awful lot about,’ Sutherland continued. ‘And I think certainly it is a genre of film that I have always loved as an audience person. I think there is an audience out there for that.’
… ‘I think there’s always a way to actually deal with an idea of 24 as a film that would be completely separate from 24 the television show. And by that I mean the characters could be different. They could be completely unrelated, and I think that that would still be effective. Obviously, it’s something that I would be very eager to do, and it requires a lot of other people to feel the same way.'”
