"24" to Make the Leap from TV to Multiplex?

by | January 9, 2006 | Comments

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, "24" producer/star Kiefer Sutherland let loose a few clues that "24" might start ticking it clock in your local movie house.

"24’s producers have begun plotting a film franchise for Bauer. Sutherland (who stars with Michael Douglas in the thriller "The Sentinel," out April 21) is itching to pull the trigger. ”It can be an amazing series of movies,” he says. ”One of the things I’ve experienced making this show is that an audience can handle a lot more than we thought when we started — the tension, the anxiety…. If we could [compress] all the energy we spread over 24 hours of programming and put that into 2, I think we’d knock your socks off.”"

Hey, they did it with "The X-Files" and "Firefly/Serenity," so why not "24"? Just study John Badham‘s "Nick of Time" on how to (and how not to) pull off a "real-time" movie.
