Good news for fans of 24, the new film is coming your way soon(ish). Kiefer Sutherland said he was more than a little excited about returning to the role of tough guy Bauer in an interview in October.

He said: ‘We’re going to hopefully start production in April on the film, and that’ll be out later on in the year.

‘We’re still a few months away, but we’ve got a script that we’re very excited about and we’re moving forward.’

Fox has announced that they will start filming next Spring.

Sutherland also said: ‘It’s going to be a two-hour representation of a 24 hour day, so we were not going to be restrained by the real time aspect of the TV show.  With the TV show we always had to have the crisis come to us because we couldn’t move.  Twice we put Jack on a plane and it was a disaster.

‘This will be different – it will be very feasible to get from Eastern Europe to England in the course of 24 hours! And the crisis can be more personal – it doesn’t have to be a huge bomb, it doesn’t have to take out the rest of the world.  It’s very exciting.’
