“24″ film is still on its way; script still in the works

A 24 feature film has been in the works for a while now, with nothing real coming out of constant production rumors as of yet. The hit show starring king of all-around bad-assery, Jack Bauer, came to its end after its eighth season last summer. Needless to say, the 24 movie is a slow-gestating project that fans can't help but be riled up over.

Today's update on the project comes from a Fox TV executive who has his pulse on the status of production. Fox Entertainment Chairman Peter Rice had this to say about the project:

"I don't work at the movie company, but my intelligence around the lot is everybody would very much like to make a 24 movie ,and I believe that they're working on the script. When they say 'We don't have a script,' they don't have a completed script that they're about to go shoot. There's a great desire to see Jack Bauer on the big screen."

This further shows how dedicated the people behind the project are to bringing it to the big screen. They are just trying to make sure that when they actually do make the film, it is the film adaptation that the series deserves.

This means you shouldn't give up on the project yet, it is coming. It might just take a little while before it actually hits the big screen. Until then, you've got eight seasons of Bauer to help hold you off.
