Kiefer Sutherland: '24' film to shoot this spring
Access Hollywood ^ | 1/8/12 | Staff

Kiefer Sutherland’s new Fox drama, “Touch” is on its way later this month, but it won’t keep the actor from making the “24” movie, set to begin production shortly. “The status on the movie — hopefully we will be shooting at the end of April, beginning of May,” the actor said on Sunday the FOX portion of the Television Critics Association Winter Session in Pasadena. (Snip) “The commitment to a television show, in the case of ’24,’ was eight years, so if you’re gonna do something potentially for another eight years, you want it to be something that you can

Starts off with Jack rappelling down from a Helicopter into a compound outside of Islamabad...by himself!

Honestly, can’t wait for this.

I just finished watching all of 24 on Netflix.

I don’t think I could have been one of those saps that had to wait every week to watch it and wait for the following season. It would have killed me.

I have to say 24 was one of the best shows on television, ever.

Some of the subplots were stupid, but Jack Bauer was probably one of the best written male characters in the history of television.

YES. That was a great show. Hope that they do politically incorrect things like make Muslims the villains.

(I know that the vast majority of Muslims are peace loving and really dislike terrorists and Al Qaeda and that it is REALLY a stretch to make them out to be our enemies or anything like that. Just kidding.)

We wanted to see a movie on Friday night at the last minute. When we showed up at the theater, hadn’t decided. War Horse and Mission Impossible were on at the same time. So, I asked the ticket booth guy which is better. He said Mission Impossible.

It was a great suggestion. The new Mission Impossible is great entertainment from start to finish. Really good acting and the it evokes the “team work” of the television show. Well done.

A “24” film sounds fantastic to me.

I can hardly wait. I hope it’s vintage Jack. It seems a lifetime ago.

I miss 24 a bunch. Will be good to see Jack again.

Meantime there's the new Fox show Touch starring Kiefer Sutherland premiering January 25, not a Jack Bauer clone.

I wasn't a Kiefer Sutherland fan until I watched 24. I am now.

I just finished watching all of 24 on Netflix.

I watched most of the seasons the same kind of way. Did you notice that the show always followed the same basic pattern every season? For example, there would be some initial threat neutralized by the CTU guys, only to find that there was an even bigger threat behind it. There was always a mole in CTU. Jack Bauer would catch somebody who would be a key to unraveling the whole threat, but before he could interrogate him, someone (usually someone within CTU) with a grudge against that key guy would kill him. Etc etc. The patterns become more obvious when you watch the seasons one after another.

Didn’t he already make a “24” inspired movie with Michael Douglas a few years back?

Very cool.

What are they going to call it? “2”?

Thank you for responding. I haven’t done much research on it, so I don’t yet know enough to ask questions. I think I will call the folks tomorrow.

I like Netflix.

I think it is good value for money.

I don’t watch satellite anymore.

If you do cost-benefit analysis, Netflix is cheaper if you have to chose one, or you can downgrade your satellite or cable package.

But I didn’t watch much TV the last 10 years or so, because I was out of the country, so I am playing catch up with a lot of series.

You should try the one month free trial and feel it out.

My 2 cents. Netflix is an awesome deal even with the recent price increase. We have had it for years, both the streaming and the DVD delivery. We really get our money’s worth from the streaming and then some.

We also watched all eight seasons of 24 at once, much better way to watch tv. We don’t watch regular tv so this is a way to catch up on any good shows we never had time for and to view some we haven’t seen in over 10 years or more.

I’d share more but I have to get to work, again a good reason to have streaming, it is there when I finally do have the time.

Mind you it isn’t current stuff but about a year behind. This past summer I watched all the season of Mad Men up to the current one, now I will wait until probably mid current season to pic up last years.

Good luck, it is worth it and there is so much there to see that you might have even forgotten about. Gotta run.

The one thing that bothered me about 24 is that Jack never ate. Would have loved to have seen Jack munching on a barbecued rib, pull out his piece and blow away a bad guy sitting across the table. In fact, the only time I’ve seen Kiefer Sutherland eat anything on screen was in “Lost Boys.”
