24 is a TV series that I have not been able to get in to. However, I know a lot of people that love it and are excited about the possibility of it turning into a movie. Today, Kiefer Sutherland dropped a bomb on The View that the film would hit theaters in 2012. However, according to Entertainment Weekly there is still no director or solid start date so a 2012 release seems like a lofty prediction.
Sutherland said that it’s possible that Tony Scott (UNSTOPPABLE) could direct as he’s been said to be working on the project. Sutherland also said that he really like the work that Billy Ray did on a script for the film. Until some solid news comes out on a director and solid start date on filming, fans of 24 probably shouldn’t get their hopes up on a 2012 release.
