Print this article Though the final episode of "24" ran nearly two years ago, fans may not have to wait much longer to see Jack Bauer on screen once again. Production on a big screen adaptation of the series is expected to begin sometime this spring, Deadline reports.
There are only a few obstacles standing in the way of filming. For one, the script needs some refining and a new director after Tony Scott is no longer attached. Despite the challenges, the news source reports that they are likely to begin shooting in April so they can accommodate star Kiefer Sutherland's schedule.
The script took some time to fine tune due to the challenges of trying to fit a 24-hour story into a two-hour movie. However, back in September, Sutherland said they were close.
"We were originally trying to make it too big and put too much into it – but once we relaxed, we found out how to tell that story," he told The Telegraph.
Though there is no word yet on when the movie will hit the big screen, fans can check out Sutherland in other movies including the made-for-TV "24: Redemption" and "Mirrors."
