Fox Rejects "24" Movie Script - Jack Bauer remains in limbo. Fox rejects the new "24" movie script for the big film screen. It was a big surprise for writer Billy Ray and executive producer Howard Gordon.
The script was not "substantial and compelling enough." Fox continues the hunt for another script as Bauer lives in limbo. However, Kiefer Sutherland told Entertainment Weekly that it's not over yet.
"I was disappointed [Fox] passed on the script but I'm certainly hopeful that the movie will get made at some point," he said. "Anecdotally, I've heard from people who are really missing the show and I do think there is more life in Jack Bauer."
Sightings of the hero in London and Zimbabwe have fueled speculation that he is meeting with Indie producers in order to get a deal done for the movie script.
Movie fans want Fox to move fast because they don't think Bauer can be out of the public eye for very much longer. Fortunately, he also lives in a different timeline than we do. That means it's only been months for us, but it's only been a few hours for him.
