"24: The Movie" Is Happening

And it will be filming in London, says Kiefer Sutherland. As monkeyboy says, the ENTIRE POINT of the show is its real-time gimmick. Unless the movie is 24 hours long or only takes place over 2 hours, it doesn't make any sense. (In fact, the plan is to condense 24 hours of action into a two hour feature. But again, that undercuts the show's entire reason for being.) Plus, it's "24" overkill. I'm a big fan of the series, but unless they end it and wait a year before releasing the movie, it's too much Jack Bauer.

suppose they could use the movie as the last two episodes of the 2007 season?

I hope Jack has to interrogate the Queen.

That's a clever idea -- having the season finale in the movie theaters. Timing wise it would be difficult, and of course you'd limit yourself to the 13 million people who watched the first 22 hours. They'll want it to stand along and be much flashier.
