The 24 movie has been on a pretty tumultuous path since it was first announced, leaving all of us wondering if the film will actually even happen. The recent news that screenwriter Billy Ray's script had been rejected by the studio didn't help the case. It seems that hasn't stopped the movie yet, and they are still hard at work trying to bring Jack Bauer to the big screen.

This update comes directly from Jack himself, Kiefer Sutherland, and you can check it out after the break.

When asked about the script changes, Kiefer responds:

"And I think it will up until the day we start shooting, and probably from that point forward, too. It’s a very difficult thing to take something that you’ve done for eight years, almost 200 episodes, and try and find a story that’s going to be unique and yet service the history of the show as well. That is to be expected. So we start shooting hopefully by next December or January."

If they plan on going behind the camera that soon, they must have a lot more work done on the film than we really know. With a project like 24, that isn't really all that surprising though. Of course, if the script turns out to be more of a hassle than they are anticipating, this time frame is sure to change.

So how should 24 fans take this news? With a grain of salt. Until the start date is more of a sure thing, the film is still looking rocky. But this does however prove that they are trying really hard to work it out, and certainly want it to happen.
