Kiefer Sutherland said "It will come out in the summer of 2012". Get ready, 24 the movie will be coming in summer 2012. Kiefer Sutherland was a guest on the ABC morning talk show The View, where he said the 24 movie will hit theaters in the summer of 2012.
Jack Bauer fans jonesing for a 24 fix can restart the clock: All 192 episodes of Fox's groundbreaking thriller are available in a complete 56-disc box set, 24: The Complete Series.
Included are extras such as a final unaired coda for the series, in which Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub) is arrested for once again freeing beleaguered counterterrorism agent Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), as her 6-year-old son watches; 24: Redemption, the two-hour Season 7 prequel, filmed in Africa; a recent Comic-Con panel; a wrap-party highlight reel; and the usual cast-and-crew interviews interspersed with highlights of the series.

Kiefer Sutherland, who wrapped shooting on the eighth and final season of "24" last
week, was in London over the weekend to speak at a BAFTA panel about the show. He
told the audience, per IGN, that screenwriter Billy Ray ("Breach," "State of Play")
has finished a script for the long-discussed feature film version of the series.
Like the show, the movie will depict a crisis-filled day in Jack's life -- but it
will condense the action to a more theater-friendly two hours or so. That might
also let Jack and Co. cover a little more ground than they normally do on the show:
"We've always had to have the situation come to us. "But now it's feasible to get
him from Eastern Europe to England" during the course of the film.
Sutherland says he hasn't read the script yet but plans to in the next couple of
weeks. He's an executive producer of the series and a producer on the film, so he'll
likely have some say in the direction the movie's story takes.

Keifer Sutherland said, "We've kind of collectively agreed
that we would entertain the idea of a film when the series was finished and if people
still wanted to see something like that. We would be really excited to do that,
because the format that we would make the movie in, because we have discussed it,
would be a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day. So we would lose the real-time
aspect, which would be a huge freedom for the writers. But it's something we would
not even start to do until the series was finished." We don't know how long Fox
plans to keep 24 on the air. Unless the ratings drop off significantly next season,
the series will be on at least until May 2011. So if the movie does happen, you're
probably looking at summer 2012 at the earliest.

The pulse-pounding countdown gets a jumpstart as
the unprecedented feature-length event from televisionís most provocative and suspenseful
I have added a couple of movie mentions from the recent
press day at the CTU set.
It's looking worse and worse for the movie with Sutherland
saying it won't happen until at least 2008.
