Jack Bauer Talks 24 Movie

Plans for big screen power hour on hold

Empire caught up with Jack Bauer this afternoon at Comic-Con's 24 panel. While taking in a sneak peak at the upcoming season eight, we got the skinny from Kiefer Sutherland on whether another 24 movie is in the works and whether a theatrical appearance might one day be on the cards.

"Well, there has been a lot of work done researching ideas for a film or a potential film franchise," explains Sutherland. "But the energy that's required to make the 24 episodes a year... we agreed that we would put any serious planning for a film aside until we were finished with the series. So outside talking about ideas for a film it hasn’t gone any farther than that. But there are certainly some cool ideas and we’d love to make it.”

So no big screen Power hour (and a half?) for the forseeable future, though they're not ruling out a second feathure-length, standalone episode in the future. God dammit, Chloe!
