One more year until Jack Bauer hits the big screen!
A month after 24's Kiefer Sutherland confirmed that a film version of Fox's cancelled series was in the works, producer Brian Grazer says that the flick is on track for a 2012 release.
"Got off the phone [with Kiefer] yesterday and we are very excited about producing the 24 movie for next year," Grazer — whose Imagine Entertainment produced the original TV series — tweeted.
News of the expedited production schedule is a long time coming for fans of the Emmy-winning drama, which ran from 2001-10.
Although the film's first round script by State of Play's Billy Ray was already nixed and a director has yet to be confirmed, Sutherland confidently declares the project "the little engine that could."
"Billy did a fantastic job and there are aspects of that story [that will remain]," Sutherland told the ladies of ABC's The View in March, confirming the studio is now working with director Tony Scott. "I couldn't be more thrilled."
