It was alleged that 20th Century Fox decided to pass on writer, Billy Ray’s (State of Play) script for the 24 feature film, but producer Howard Gordon hopes that the movie will get made all the same, “I do think there is more life in Jack Bauer.”
Kiefer Sutherland is supposedly in talks with Unstoppable director, Tony Scott, but then it’s more hearsay than real.
Rumor or not Scott sounds like a good idea, considering his style of theatrical pacing as seen in Enemy of the State, Spy Game and, of course, Unstoppable. But Fox’s rejection of the script could mean it’s not good enough or just a general loss of interest in the franchise or both. Come guy, are you going to make the movie or what?
