Sutherland Tests 24 Film With New TV Movie

19 November 2008 11:00 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Producers of Kiefer Sutherland's hit drama 24 are urging fans to tune into their forthcoming made-for-tv movie when it finally airs - because a big screen outing for the action franchise will all depend on its ratings.

Sutherland returns to his role as federal agent Jack Bauer in 24: Redemption, a prequel to the upcoming seventh season of the show which returns to U.S. TV in January.

And executive producer Howard Gordon is praying audiences stay in to watch the TV film.

He tells the New York Post, "I would look at (the TV movie) as a dry run for a theatrical release.

"Depending on how well the DVD sells, and how high the ratings are, I think that would be an indicator to the feature film department about what the business prospects for a potential film might be.

"We really did this on a television budget (and) it looks spectacular."

The TV movie is scheduled to air on Sunday. »

24 Boss Orders Seventh Season Rewrites

8 September 2008 12:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Bosses on TV hit 24 have halted shooting on the drama's seventh season, and ordered the last six episodes to be re-written.

The multiple award-winning show is set to return to the small screen after a lengthy break.

Eight episodes were completed last year before Writer's Guild members began lengthy industrial action.

Shooting resumed earlier this year, after star Kiefer Sutherland completed a prison sentence for violating his probation with a drink driving charge.

But executive producer Howard Gordon has pulled the plug three quarters of the way through the shoot, because he is unhappy with the way the season is set to end, reports Daily Variety.

Writers have been given until the end of September to return with an improved script, before production resumes on 9 October. »

Filming for the new season of 24 is to be suspended for 18 days while the show's team works on revisions to scripts. The pause in production begins on September 25, when episode 18 has been completed, and will run until October 9. It will not affect plans for the launch of season seven in January, however.

'24' pausing production for 18 days

5 September 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fox’s "24" is stopping the production clock for 18 days to allow writers to work on upcoming scripts.

Filming on the real-time drama will be shut down Sept. 15, after the completion of episode 18. It will resume Oct. 9.

The idea for the unscheduled hiatus came from "24" executive producer/showrunner Howard Gordon who had been concerned about the quality of several scripts for upcoming episodes of the 20th Century Fox TV-produced series.

The work stoppage won’t affect the launch of "24'"s seventh season slated for January.

The start of production on the seventh season was delayed a couple of times last summer while the plot line was being redrawn. Filming was then shut down after the eighth episode in early December for almost five months because of the writers strike, which led to Fox’s decision to hold back the entire season until 2009.

Since April, "24" has been in continuous production on »

Contemplating the '24' Two Hour Made-for-tv Movie

17 March 2008 11:46 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

We're only ten months away from the season 7 premiere of 24.aspx" >24!  Are you excited yet?  I don't know if this is the case, but I'm guessing that this is the longest between-season hiatus of any network series ever.  Of all the series affected by the WGA writers' strike, 24 has, by far, been hurt the most.  But, at least the 24 team threw fans a bone earlier this month when they announced that they are going to produce a two-hour 24 movie that will hit the air this coming Fall.  This is some consolation for the long wait between seasons, but more importantly it will be a test to see whether the 24 team is capable of getting the franchise back on track after a universally derided sixth season.  The thing that we don't know, however, is what the plot of this two hour prequel will be. 

Technically, I don't really know if we »
