Kiefer Sutherland -- on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" last night--- said the long-long-gestating "24" movie could still go forward, although more likely next year. There was a report in Deadline yesterday that the film had foundered on the rocks of budgetary concerns, etc., etc., but he said last night scheduling issues were the heart of the problem. He's starring on "Touch," launching in a couple of weeks, and if that gets a pickup, then how to do the movie as well? (He didn't say that, but it's my question.)
In any case, he told Jay: "We'll do it next year. '24' was so good to me, and I -- we -- have a responsibility to protect it. Our job is to make sure we make the best possible movie, and we're still trying."
