Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it but it seems that Keifer Sutherland (who is an executive producer on the hit TV series) has managed to convince Twentieth Century Fox that a feature length theatrical version is a good idea.

Variety have reported today that screenwriter, Billy Ray (State Of Play and Flightplan) has been brought in my Fox to start writing a script which sees Jack Bauer go to Europe to rid the world of all things terrorist.They go to say that the usual 24 stle hour by hour guide will be spread over a period of 2 hours – much like many other films except this one will no doubt have a ticking clock emblazoned over the cinema screen every few minutes.

I liked the first three series of 24 but then it got a bit samey and now I feel it’s all gone on a bit too long. But the audience must be out there or this wouldn’t even be considered by Fox executives would it? Then again, they’ve now go so much money in their Scrooge McDuck style money but following the success of Avatar, they might as well spend it on something!
