"24: The Movie" is likely to come out not long after the TV series ends in the eighth season. Kiefer Sutherland, who plays major character Jack Bauer in the FOX show and is set to reprise the role in the big screen version, has just confirmed at an exclusive BAFTA Q&A that the screenplay for the movie is ready.

According to the actor, screenwriter Billy Ray has finished writing the script a couple of weeks ago. Sutherland has not read it but he plans to do it when he returns to the United States.

About the idea of the storyline, it has been mentioned that the film may take the special agent from Eastern Europe to England during the course of movie. Sutherland has also revealed that the crisis faced by his character doesn't necessarily deal with a bomb. "It can be something personal that people understand," he stated as quoted by IGN.

It has not been known when the production for the movie will begin. No director has been tapped to work on the upcoming project while The 20th Century Fox has not picked up a release date.

In the meantime, Kiefer Sutherland has wrapped shooting for the last episode of "24" TV series last week. FOX will air the two-hour series finale on May 24.

So I guess its safe to say that Jack Bauer will not die in the series finale if he is reported to be in the movie?

Here's a thought: granddaughter Teri is kidnapped. Maybe by a drug lord. Gives Jack motive and reasons to use guns.
