24 Movie: More Exciting Details Emerge!
Sutherland first mentioned that the project was in the pipeline back at the start of December but precious little information has been gleaned.
So what do we know?
1. The film will cover a full 24 hour period but time will be super-squeezed into a two hour film.
2. The film will pick up the storyline about eight months after the end of the eighth season.
3. And finally, there’s confirmation that Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe will have a place in the movie’s story.
The much-touted Billy Ray wrote the initial drafts of the screenplay, with recent additional work by Mark Bomback (Unstoppable, the upcoming Wolverine).
Brian Grazer is producing. The film is believed to see Jack Bauer making his ends justify his means in Europe, but the previously reported Fox shortlist of five directors still hasn’t resulted in an announcement.
More details will probably emerge at a similarly painstaking rate. Look out for news of two more minute details come the end of Feb…*yawns*
