Is a “24” movie starring Jack Bauer upon us? Over the past weeks, unknown to fans and the public eye, it is confirmed that there have been exclusive talks to bring the hit FOX series to the big screen. Read on to learn more about it.

According to TV Line,  the rumors about the film project were brought by the buzz that the last season entitled “24: Live Another Day” has produced and in turn, it fuels a new idea.

Brian Grazer, the chairman of Imagine Entertainment, is very interested in the idea of bringing the hit TV series to the big screen. However, no statement has been released yet regarding this.

Just last winter, Kiefer Sutherland said that a movie of “24” is possible, “The film’s an ongoing situation. There’s always an opportunity to do that.”

“However, there’s a conflict ahead because Fox network may have a different idea in mind, “I loved this years season of ’24.’ I’ve always been a fan. We haven’t had a specific conversation about it coming back yet, but I’m sure we will in the future. It’s a wonderful franchise. When you look at the show itself, it has many more stories to tell. I think we need to sit down and talk to the creators,” said FOX Networks Group Chairman CEO peter Rice in a statement posted on TV Line.

Months after the revival of “24” it seems like no one can still stop talking about the show. It’s like an epidemic – an epic TV series that makes viewers crave for more and there’s no surprise there as the series have gained a lot of fans worldwide. And a movie in the near future may just be what the doctor ordered. Let’s also not forget the fact that the end of “24: Live Another Day” just teased that there might be another follow-up series.
