’24′ Movie to Start Shooting Next Spring, Script Nears Completion

6 December 2011 9:54 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Tick, tock, tick, tock…. Get ready to hear those familiar chimes in a movie theater near you as you gobble copious amounts of popcorn. That’s right, the previously elusive 24 feature film is finally graduating to pre-production status. Deadline reports screenwriter Mark Bomback is being tapped to tweak the script that was penned by Billy Ray. Bomback is no stranger to action films having written adrenaline-fests Live Free or Die Hard and Unstoppable. He’s also working on the scripts to two other well-known action franchises, The Wolverine and Total Recall. At this time, there’s no director attached to the project, though Imagine Entertainment and 20th Century Fox are said to be considering five helmers. It’s also worth noting that there is no mention of plot at this point, though it’s safe to say that Jack Bauer will once again save the world from a terrorist threat »

Deadline reports that Mark Bomback ("The Wolverine," "Shadow Divers") is doing some quick tweaks of Billy Ray's script and will turn it in before the end of the year.

Fox reportedly has five directors in mind for the film, a list that does Not include the previously attached Tony Scott, and will lock them in very early next year.

The aim is to get film shooting underway in April to fit star Kiefer Sutherland’s availability. »

Get Ready For The 24 Movie!

6 December 2011 4:38 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After years of toing and froing, it seems that the long-mooted 24 film will finally happen. The project is reportedly set to begin shooting next spring, to tie in with Kiefer Sutherland’s availability.

However, previously-attached director Tony Scott is no loger involved – so there is some speculation as to who will take over directing duties. 20th Century Fox are reportedly discussing five names at the moment, and have The Wolverine writer Mark Bomback tinkering with the script.

Aside from this, deatils on the project are sparse, but it’s safe to assume the film will occur in real time. Though it probably won’t be 24-hours long.

24 Movie Finally Underway

6 December 2011 4:37 AM, PST | LOVEFiLM | See recent LOVEFiLM news »

After many delays and difficulties, the much awaited movie of the long-running TV action drama 24 looks to be finally getting underway.

Kiefer Sutherland will at last be able to don his role as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer on the big screen as Deadline have confirmed that filming on the movie will begin in April 2012.

The movie has been in development for a number of years, most recently a screenplay from Billy Ray (Flightplan, State of Play), was rejected last January.

Now Fox have hired writer Mark Bomback (The Wolverine, Unstoppable) to develop Ray’s original story by the end of the year.

In addition, there are also five potential directors lined up to work under producer Brian Grazer, who recently took over next year’s Oscars, following Brett Ratner’s departure.

While it was rumoured that Tony Scott would direct, scheduling difficulties have forced him to decline on the project. »

’24′ Movie Aiming for a Spring 2012 Start Date

5 December 2011 8:11 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Jack is back – for real this time. At the beginning of the year, a report claimed that Fox was unsatisfied with Billy Ray’s script for the big screen version of the hit series 24 and that the movie was in temporary limbo. Not long after, however, Kiefer Sutherland said that the movie was still in the works and that certain elements of Ray’s script were still in play.

Now, just like its hero, the 24 movie has burst back to life to kick terrorist butt. According to a new report, 24 is just about ready for the big time, pending some last-minute tweaks to the screenplay from new screenwriter Mark Bomback (Unstoppable, The Wolverine).

Deadline has the story that Imagine Entertainment and Fox are pushing hard to get the film started by spring ...

24 Feature Film Moving Forward

5 December 2011 6:26 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Deadline New York is reporting the 24 film, based on the Imagine entertainment/Fox television series is finally moving forward. Mark Bomback, who also wrote the constantly delayed The Wolverine and the upcoming Shadow Divers, is fine tuning the original script penned by The Hunger Games screenwriter Billy Ray.   Keifer Sutherland is back as agent Jack Bauer and the plan is to start production in the spring when Sutherland’s availability opens up.   Each season of 24 the series followed in real-time a 24 hour period in the life of CTU agent Jack Bauer as he attempted to thwart a terrorist plot. As of now, the plot of the film is unknown, but one can assume it will either stick to the real-time gimmick but have the action take place over the course of a couple of hours, or it will condense one 24 hour day into a more theatre friendly 2 hr running time. »

24 the Movie to Start Shooting in 2012

5 December 2011 2:52 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like 24 the movie is actually going to go down. I figured it was one of those pipe dreams that would never happen, but it really is actually moving forward! In fact, 20th Century Fox has hired The Wolverine screenwriter Mark Bomback to write the latest draft of the script. The script is supposed to be turned in by the end of the year and the studio is looking to start shooting the film early next year, which is great for all of us 24 fans!

According to Deadline Tony Scott is no longer attached to direct the movie, but the studio has five other directors in mind. There's no word on who those five directors are. Of course Kiefer Sutherland will be back to reprise his role as Jack Bauer, the man who never eats, sleeps, or poops within a 24 hour period of time, but manages to save the world from evil doers. »

Jack Bauer will Return in… April? 24: The Movie gets moving once again

5 December 2011 2:08 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Looking back through the HeyUGuys archives we can see a number of stories charting the development of a big screen version of Fox’s 24, from before the cancellation of the show after its eighth season to talks of a movie going into production in 2010. Then after a solid lack of progression a script from State of Play screenwriter Billy Ray was supposed to kickstart the project back into life., but this was not to be.

Kiefer Sutherland himself talked up the break from the show’s real-time format and hinted that the movie would trot the globe taking in London and ‘Eastern Europe’, then almost exactly a year ago the name of Tony Scott was thrown into the ring along with the news that the Billy Ray script wasn’t strong enough and was therefore ditched unceremoniously. So, where does another year along the road find us?

‘24’ Movie Scheduled to Begin Production In First Half of Next Year; Tony Scott and Billy Ray No Longer Involved

5 December 2011 1:57 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If movement’s taken place on a film version of 24 in the past two months, any and all of it has been completely silent to us regular folks. Following Kiefer Sutherland‘s mildly dubious claim that the script was nearing completion, you’d think that, if those comments weren’t in fact dubious, something would happen over the next 60 days or so. Alas.

Now, Deadline informs us that things really are cooking on the TV-to-film project; Unstoppable and The Wolverine writer Mark Bomback is set to “turn in the latest script draft by year’s end,” and five directors are currently being considered by Fox. None of them are Tony Scott. After someone’s hired, the process “will all begin happening very quickly in the early part of next year,” with shooting arranged to “match Sutherland’s availability, which begins in April.”

Good news, bad news, it seems. Personally speaking, »

Jack Bauer May Finally Battle Terrorists Again by 2012

5 December 2011 1:51 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

If, you know, everything works out, I mean. But considering that ol Jack Bauer’s life hasn’t exactly been a bed of roses since he took up terrorist battlin’ as a profession, who knows if all the pieces will finally fall into place so we can see Jack on the big screen kicking terrorist ass and taking names. Fox certainly seems keen on making it happen, with the studio expecting a new script from writer Mark Bomback (“The Wolverine”) to be delivered to them by the end of the year, with a possible April 2012 start date on production to take advantage of star Keifer Sutherlan’s availability. Of course, that means the studio will also need to settle on a director, with reports that Fox has narrowed their list down to five potential names. Tony Scott, we’re told, is not one of the five being considered, though he had been previously. »

24 Movie May Start Filming Next Spring

5 December 2011 1:33 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A feature film adaptation of the Fox series 24 has been promised for quite some time now. Originally the plan was to head into the movie directly after the show’s final season, but it’s been a bit of a tough road to production with numerous stops and starts. Deadline now reports that things have picked back up once again and the goal is to start filming after star Kiefer Sutherland’s availability opens up next April. Fox passed on the original script by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), but the latest draft by Mark Bomback (The Wolverine) is set to be turned in by the end of the year, after which the search will begin for a director. Tony Scott was previously attached to direct, but he’s no longer involved. Producer Brian Grazer and the studio have “about five directors in mind” to take over the job, though Deadline »

24 Movie Shoots This Spring

5 December 2011 12:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox is gearing up to start production on the 24 movie in April 2012, which is when star Kiefer Sutherland will be available.

Screenwriter Mark Bomback (Unstoppable, The Wolverine) will have his draft of the script ready by the end of this year. The studio is currently eyeing five directors to take on this project, although it doesn't seem there is a front runner yet. Back in February, Kiefer Sutherland revealed director Tony Scott was interested in directing 24, but he is no longer attached to the project.

Little is known about the story line for 24, although writer Billy Ray's earlier draft of the script took Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer to Europe. It isn't known if those plot elements are still in place with Mark Bomback's script. Brian Grazer is producing for Imagine Entertainment.

It isn't known when the 24 movie will hit theaters yet.

’24′ Heating Up For Spring Start With Kiefer Sutherland In Jack Bauer Mode

5 December 2011 12:27 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The clock has started on 24, the feature version of the Imagine Entertainment/Fox series. The project, which brings back Kiefer Sutherland’s tireless government operative Jack Bauer. Mark Bomback–a favorite writer at 20th Century Fox writing The Wolverine and Shadow Divers–will turn in the latest script draft by year’s end. Imagine and the studio have about five directors in mind–no, Tony Scott is not attached anymore–and it will all begin happening very quickly in the early part of next year. The goal is to get the film into production to match Sutherland’s availability, which begins in April. That should give producer Brian Grazer something to do after he completes producing the Academy Awards and it is certainly good news for fans of the show who were beginning to fear the project wouldn’t happen. »

Finally! 24 Movie To Start Shooting Next Spring With Script From The Wolverine Writer

5 December 2011 11:37 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When 24 was cancelled during its eighth season, it was brought to a close in a way which left the door wide open for the long talked about movie. Admittedly, the show spent its last few years struggling to live up to the high benchmark set by the incredible fifth season, but fans were desperate to see a conclusion to Jack Bauer's story despite how unlikely that has seemingly become as time has gone on. Well, Deadline now reports that Mark Bomback (The Wolverine) will turn in the latest, and possibly final, draft of the script in the next few weeks. Imagine Entertainment and Fox have five directors in mind as of right now - Tony Scott pulled out due to other commitments - and pre-production is expected to be a very quick process with the studio aiming to start shooting in April as soon as star Kiefer Sutherland is free. »
