Kiefer Sutherland talks 24 movie on Jonathan Ross Show

Kiefer Sutherland appeared on the Jonathan Ross show and spoke a bit about the 24 movie.

“We’ve been working on it for a very long time. There’s so many components, but we have a script that we’re very excited about, we’re talking to directors that we’re excited about… I’m doing a new show called Touch, and so the window that I have between when we finish the first season and would start the second season is very small. So we’re trying as hard as we can to get it done this year.”

(Thanks to Jack for the heads up!)

So Touch is greenlit for a season 2 already?

‘Touch’ has not been renewed for a second season – yet – with FOX analysing the show’s ratings before deciding. Regardless of whether it is renewed or not, it will likely have no change on the production schedule for the ’24’ movie, FOX will not want it to be a six-month shoot, but rather a twelve or thirteen week shoot to get it ready for a probable late November release… let’s hope so, as I would not not want to wait another year for the ’24’ movie, especially considering the script is finished, and all involved want to get it made now, if for no other reason, to strike while the iron is hot and there is still a momentum from the end of the series!

It’s not a good idea to release the 24 movie in November in my opinion. Too much competition with movies like the Bond film Skyfall and Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Gravity starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock and other big films that are released during the holiday season and the 24 movie will end up getting lost in the mix and not get the audience it deserves. Early 2013 will be more ideal given that there are no big movies are released during that time of year.

Actually, the fifth ‘Die Hard’ movie is released on February 14th, 2013, and considering that is not only another 20th Century Fox release, it is also a similarly themed movie to ’24’, which means that FOX are not going to release two similar action movies within weeks of each other, so either the ’24’ movie will be a late 2012 release or a spring 2013 release, but I still bet it will be the former…
