Former “24” executive producer Howard Gordon tells Assignment X that the proposed movie adaptation of the hit Fox TV series has been put on indefinite hold.
Acclaimed scribe Billy Ray (“Breach,” “Shattered Glass”) penned a script for the big-screen Jack Bauer adventure, but Fox passed on the take. Gordon says “There was a script, but ultimately it wasn’t the right proposition. It wasn’t strong enough or compelling enough to the studio obviously to move ahead with it.”
Gordon adds that he’s not involved in the project anymore but director Tony Scott apparently “has an idea that he is going to run it by or has run it by Kiefer Sutherland. I don’t know what the status of it is.”
Could that mean we might eventually see Tony Scott-directed “24” movie? I know a certain writer in Canberra right now who will be doing cartwheels if this turns out to be true.
