Kiefer Sutherland, Jon Voight, Cherry Jones and others posed for the camera in anticipation of the release of 2-hour movie '24: Redemption'.
Taking the stroll on the red carpet rolled down in front of New York City's AMC Theaters Empire was Keifer Sutherland who was there to promote his TV movie "24: Redemption". Kiefer, was joined at the November 19 event by the movie's other cast such as Cherry Jones, Jon Voight, and Robert Carlyle among others.
"24: Redemption" is a two-hour movie that will hit the small screen on Sunday, November 23 via FOX. It was created based on the popular series "24" in anticipation of the long break between "24" sixth to seventh season, that was caused by the writer's strike. It serves as a prequel that correlates between seasons six and seven, set in Southern Africa where Jack finds himself caught up in a military coup.
"We're very excited about the work we've been able to do here and we're getting to a place now where we can't wait for people to see it," Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer, said while shooting in South Africa.
The seventh season of "24" itself will be premiered on January 11, with the story taking set back in Washington, D.C., several days after the events in the TV movie. A trailer for the series has been released, and can be viewed on AceShowbiz's video page.
