Jack Bauer Gets a Movie?

Jack Bauer might be showing up at our local movie theaters sometimes soon.  Movie insiders are passing along rumor that Fox is talking with Billy Ray, writer of State of Play, to write a movie screenplay for the hit TV franchise.  There are a couple factors as to whether this movie happens though.

  1. 24’s ratings – Ratings are down compared to last year.  However 24 is the 3rd most watched show behind American Idol and House.
  2. Renewal of 24 for season 9 – If the show is renewed a movie is less likely until the end of the series.

The script writers are currently writing episodes 23 and 24 of the show so a decision needs to be made soon.  Will they write a series finale with a possible tie-in to a movie or a season finale to start another adrenaline filled year of the Jack Bauer Power Hour.

    I’m definitely up for a movie franchise, but how do you satisfy fans by putting 24 hours into 90 minutes?

      I don’t know how they would satisfy people. I do know this much though: Jack Bauer would probably kick ass for nearly 2 straight hours. Very few breaks thats for sure!
