Deadline reports that screenwriter Billy Ray is still penning the script to the 24 movie. Last we heard roughly ten months ago, his initial script was turned down by the studio.
Ray is scripting the revisionist Peter Pan pic Pan for Channing Tatum and Joe Roth, adapted A Captain’s Duty with Paul Greengrass directing Tom Hanks, and he continues to write the screen adaptation of the series 24 at Fox. He also scripted a remake of The Secret In Their Eyes, which Ray will direct. He’s repped by CAA and Management 360.
