Nothing huge, but here is a new tweet from Howard Gordon who confirms he is still involved with the 24 movie in some fashion, and that they’re assessing the “best next steps”.
@bauermulder24 yes I’ve got a hand in it… but we’re still assessing best next steps.

What that means, no one knows for sure, but it seems likely that the script will require some rewrites in order to bring the film in line with the lower budget that 20th Century Fox is demanding. Kiefer and producers Imagine Entertainment were hoping to have a $45-60 million budget for the flick while Fox is persisting on 30 million.
There will certainly have to be compromises made somewhere and that is likely what Gordon is referring to. Let’s hope they get this stuff figured out sooner rather than later. Thanks Rob for the heads up.
