'24': The movie
16:30 09 June 2006
The movie version of hit TV show '24' has finally been confirmed and will hit the big screen in 2008.
However, the film will abandon the real-time style of the hugely popular series and concentrate on central character Jack Bauer - a maverick counter terrorism agent played by Kiefer Sutherland.
The show's executive producer Howard Gordan said: "We felt too constrained by the real time structure and realized Jack Bauer was such a strong character that he could fill the big screen."
Although the cast has not been announced yet the 'Lost Boys' actor has previously said he would "absolutely" love to star in the movie.
He said: "It's something that we would like to shoot between the sixth and the seventh season."
"We would be able to travel a lot more, and show some different locations, and all of those things are exciting for us."
Filming is due to start next spring and although exact locations have not been announced Sutherland previously hinted the film could be set in Europe, with shoots in London, Prague and Morocco.
