In some unfortunate news for 24 fans, Deadline is reporting that the big-screen version of the real time television series won’t be moving forward this year as originally planned.
Recently, there was even news of a proposed start date in late April or early May. Plans now put the project on indefinite hold with shooting scheduled for 2013 at the earliest.
Written by Mark Bomback and Billy Ray, the 24 film is allegedly planned to continue directly from the series’ finale, jumping forward in time by about six months. Like the show, the film will be set over a 24 hour period but (of course) will not actually play out in real time.
