Months after the plan for developing "24" the movie was first exposed, the action thriller TV series' star Kiefer Sutherland keeps fans' hope on the movie high. Revealing to several different publications on the movie project, Sutherland insisted on one thing, the movie will be tackled after the series is done.
"It's certainly on the table," said the 41-year-old Primetime Emmy Award-winner to Extra. "We would certainly be thrilled to make it, but we're going to wait until the series is finished." On similar note, he gave an even more interesting tidbit to Reelz Channel, "It's always been a desire but we've always known that for the writers, it's so hard for them to actually get through the series every year that we put the film on the back burner, that we would do it after the series was over, and that might be as soon as next year."
Aired by Fox Network, "24" series follows the 24-hour period in the life of U.S. government agent Jack Bauer as he is being caught up in conspiracies, major terrorism plots and presidential scandals. The show that has broadcast its six seasons has won numerous awards, including Primetime Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards.
