Kiefer Sutherland and Jack Bauer Return to Movie Theaters!

Jack Bauer to Return to Movie Theaters!
Nov 16, 2010
U.S. special agent Jack Bauer was bided goodbye by his ardent viewers as the ended his career in a final "24" television series in May, the actor behind Bauer says he is to return again in movie theatres.

This was great news to his Japanese fans, who gathered in Tokyo on Tuesday to meet and greet the actor Keifer Sutherland -- star of hit series "24" .

The final episode of the series ran out in May when Bauer, after eight horrifying days, turned into a fugitive from justice and was being forced to escape the country he loved.

It seemed a fitting end for Bauer because during the show's eight seasons -- each one-hour episodes elapsed as if it were one hour in a day -- the tough-as-nails super agent always landed in trouble.

The final scene ended with an emotional goodbye between Bauer and his long-time trusted friend and colleague, Chloe O'Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub), before he disappeared.

At a fan event in Tokyo, Sutherland recalls the actual farewells after the series was over were fittingly the hardest.

"It was a emotional day. It has taken me a minute to adjust. I meant, it was a fourth of my life making that show and some of the best series I've ever had and so it was very hard to say goodbye. Not so much to the show because I know that we're still gonna make the film, and other things, it was to say goodbye to the people that was much more difficult than I had ever imagined," Sutherland told his fans in an event to promote the Bluray and DVD release of the final series in Tokyo.

The cliffhanger ending also undoubtedly left loyal fans guessing about the plot of a planned movie based on the show, which had gone off the Fox network for good.
Sutherland says he and the filmmakers are planning to bring new elements to the "24" film.

"The main difference of the film will be that it will be a two-hour-presentation of a 24-hour-day. It will not be in real time, which will free the writers up greatly. It is very feasible to fly from the United States to Japan, and still have a lot of stuff to do. We can never do that in real time because the flight is 14 hours, that would just not be very good watching," he said.

"It's a little early for me to say, but some amazing film makers have made themselves available to make the film and so we're very excited. It's going to look, I think, very different than the show and again, the time format is gonna create a lot of elements too, but there's also going to be, you know, there gonna be circumstances that are gonna be very similar. It's gonna be a bad day, and Jack Bauer will somehow find himself in the middle of it," he added.

No details, including the release date, were mentioned as the script is still in development.

"24" premiered on U.S. airwaves in November 2001, shortly after the September 11 attacks in the United States, and over the course of eight seasons, its stories often echoed real-life events and controversies.

Some episodes sparked heated debates about the effectiveness of torture, and others touched on issues of press freedom and nuclear arms.
During its run, the show garnered numerous Emmy awards, including best drama series in 2006. Sutherland was nominated for best actor seven times and won once.
