Fans of Kiefer Sutherland‘s “24” had hoped there would be a big screen version of the hit TV series.

And it seemed like it was going to happen.

When the show ended last spring, Sutherland himself said, “We wanted to create a definitive end for [his character] Jack Bauer… Since we do have the intention to make the feature film, it would lead into that and certainly set that up.”

But now comes word that 20th Century Fox turned down a screenplay for the film adaptation.

Howard Gordon, who produced the show, told Entertainment Weekly, “As far as I know, it is in suspended animation… There is talk about re-approaching it. I understand [director/producer] Tony Scott is meeting with Kiefer to talk about ideas. People are still talking about it.”

Hopefully, whatever issues there are with the plot can be resolved.
