Rather unfortunate news about the 24 movie from Howard Gordon. In an interview with Assignment X he reveals that Billy Ray’s script for the 24 movie was turned down by the studio with the reason being that it “wasn’t strong enough or compelling enough” for the studio to move forward with it.
Gordon also mentions that he isn’t involved with the movie right now and doesn’t know the status of it, but repeats the rumor of Tony Scott being interested. This is an unfortunate setback for the 24 movie, but at least it shows they are trying to make a quality movie rather than cash in on the shows success and make a quick buck.
