It looks like the long-awaited for "24" movie is getting a little closer to reality.
Kiefer Sutherland, who starred as Jack Bauer on the fan favorite Fox series, told the ladies of "The View" last month that the show would get the cinematic treatment next year, and now producer Brian Grazer has backed him up.
“Got off the phone Keifer yesterday and we are very excited about producing the ‘24' movie for next year,” Grazer tweeted on April 5.
Last December, news came that the script had run into trouble over at 20th Century Fox, and EW reported in March that while Sutherland name-dropped Tony Scott as the director/producer the studio was working with, there still didn't seem to be a director attached to the project, which also didn't have a start date.
