24- Season 5 24
After tons of speculation and hints, Fox has finally taken the first steps to turn the popular television series 24 into a feature length movie.

The only disappointment is that it looks like the whole realtime aspect, the most important element in the show, will not make the cut for the film.

24 Movie

According to Variety, Twentieth Century Fox has closed a deal with series creators Robert Cochran and Joel Surnow, as well as showrunner Howard Gordon, to bring 24 to the bigscreen.

Though it looks like the realtime aspect will be thrown out for the film the second most important element, Jack Bauer, will remain. And, if there was any doubt, Keifer Sutherland continues to show interest in playing the role of super-agent on film.

It's understood the Cochran-Surnow-Gordon troika will begin work on the script late this summer, just as production on the sixth season of 24 gets under way.

The film will take place between the sixth and seventh season.

Fox is expecting to have a script in their hands by early winter but are not counting their chickens before they hatch. The studio plans to wait on the premier of Season 6 of 24 to make sure ratings continue to remain high in the series. If all goes well, the feature film would be greenlit early next year and go into production next spring and summer during the hiatus between season six and season seven of 24.

By abandoning the realtime concept behind the show, the scribes will have more options with the story; something that is expected to have Jack Bauer doing international travel.

Stay tuned for updates.
