24 Producers Plotting Feature Franchise

Source: Comingsoon.net

Entertainment Weekly's new cover story reveals that producers of Fox's 24 have begun plotting a film franchise for Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland's character in the hit series.

"It can be an amazing series of movies," Sutherland said. "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."

The fifth season of 24 premieres with a two-day, four-hour event Sunday, Jan. 15 and Monday, Jan. 16 (8:00-10:00 PM). 24 will air original episodes – no repeats – every week for the rest of the season.
