Al parecer Jack Bauer no empezara a rodar este año la esperada película de 24. 20th Century Fox a decidido aguantar la producción, pero la buena noticia para los fanáticos de 24 como yo, es que al parecer, el estudio quiere transformar la idea del escritor principal en una trilogía para el cine.
Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox has decided not to go forward with the film this year. Apparently budget issues are to blame, and the studio wasn’t convinced everything could be worked out in time to shoot the movie before star Kiefer Sutherland has to report back for the second season of his new seriesTouch this fall (if it’s renewed). Hit the jump for more, including the possibility of a film trilogy.
Billy Ray wrote the script for the film (with a polish by Mark Bomback) but Deadline notes that Ray had apparently constructed the script to play out in a three-picture arc (ie. 24: The Trilogy). This makes sense, given that the idea of fitting the real-time series into one two-hour movie was fairly daunting. The creatives involved certainly have experience with long-form storytelling, so a 24 movie trilogy isn’t a bad idea.
