Fox No Fan of Current 24 Movie Script

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that 20th Century Fox have rejected a script from Billy Ray (State of Play) for the proposed 24 movie that would continue the story of Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer.

“As far as I know, it is in suspended animation,” the show’s executive producer Howard Gordon said, adding, “There is talk about re-approaching it. I understand (director/producer) Tony Scott is meeting with Kiefer to talk about ideas. People are still talking about it.”

Gordon said that he doesn’t think Jack’s days are over, however. “I was disapppointed [Fox] passed on the script but I’m certainly hopeful that the movie will get made at some point.

The movie would be a two-hour representation of a 24-hour time frame.
