'24' Production Shut Down


'24' Production Shut Down


The filming of Jack Bauer's latest adventure series will be put in hiatus starting on September 15.

Golden Globe award-winning action drama, "24", will stop its filming for more than two weeks. On Friday, September 5, the 20th Century Fox have confirmed on the shutting down of the production grounding the decision on giving filmmakers time to rethink the direction and rewrite the script.

The work stoppage will be done after the completion of episode 18 on September 15 and the shooting is expected to resume on October 9. The idea of the hiatus has come from "24" executive producer Howard Gordon because he is concerned with the direction of the season's final six episodes.

Though the production will be halted for quite a while, it has been stated that the shutting down of filming won't affect the series' season 7 launch in January 2009 since it was already ahead of schedule. This is not the first time the production for season 7 is being stopped. Back in December 2007, the filming was shut down due to the writers strike.

Before season 7 will get its air time, Fox will be presenting viewers with a 2-hour season 7 prologue entitled "24: Redemption". The television movie starring Kiefer Sutherland will serve to be the bridge between seasons 6 and 7 and is set to be broadcast on November 23, 2008. It will be set partially in Southern Africa where Bauer finds himself caught up in a military coup while trying to find a peaceful place.
