Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox and Imagine Entertainment are eyeing a spring 2012 start for the 24 movie starring Kiefer Sutherland.
The Wolverine screenwriter Mark Bomback is expected to turn in the latest draft of the script by year’s end, says the site.
Billy Ray wrote the first draft, which took Jack Bauer to Europe.
Imagine and the studio have five directors in mind and everything is expected to be put into place early next year. Sutherland will be available to start shooting in April.
