A few weeks ago brought the stupendous, if genuinely surprising news that Kiefer Sutherland's iconic '24' character Jack Bauer would return in a 2014 limited series tentavitely titled '24: Live Another Day.' Much of the original writing staff will return under producer Howard Gordon, but will fan-favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe) return as the voice in Jack Bauer's ear as well? Get the latest on the '24' revival inside!
We never would have believed it, but it seems Jack Bauer has officially been called back to duty. Just days after FOX announced that Kiefer Sutherland's post-'24' vehicle 'Touch' had been canceled in its second season, the network made official its plans to return the counter-terrorism thriller in a new limited run series to begin airing in mid 2014. Find out about Jack Bauer's big '24' return inside!
Yesterday we heard the unbelievable news that FOX had entered talks with former '24' star Kiefer Sutherland to revive the property as a limited series, following the cancellation of Sutherland's two-season thriller 'Touch.' The news had initially been deemed too unexpected to be certain, but now it seems former '24' executive producer David Fury has confirmed the news. Find out the latest details on the '24' reboot inside!
Sure, like most outlets we cracked a joke that 'Touch's recent cancellation would allow series star Kiefer Sutherland to finally get that long-stalled '24' movie off the ground, but who's laughing in real-time now? New reports have emerged that the Jack Bauer franchise will return to FOX as a limited series, with Kiefer Sutherland in talks to reprise his famous role. Find out if '24' will really return inside!
We had thought that FOX's biggest decisions had been made, now that NBC and The CW had stolen the spotlight with their many announcements, but it seems FOX had at least one more bomb to drop. After two troubled seasons, Kiefer Sutherland's post-'24' vehicle 'Touch' has officially been cancelled, after finishing out its second season on Friday nights. Get the latest on 'Touch's cancellation inside!
It's been a solid three years since '24's Jack Bauer had a set number of hours with which to battle terrorists, but it doesn't look like the former CTU agent will be coming out of retirement anytime soon. Even if series star Kiefer Sutherland's schedule frees up in the wake of FOX drama 'Touch's potential cancellation, attached '24' movie director Antoine Fuqua believes the project has been shelved for good. Find out if Jack Bauer could still hit the big screen inside!
Where has director Mira Nair been? The last time we saw the acclaimed filmmaker behind 'Monsoon Wedding,' she was slumming it with the instantly forgettable Oscar bait 'Amelia' back in 2009. With that out of her system, her next film, 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist,' will hopefully be a return to form, and the new trailer certainly has our hopes up!
As long as it's been since we've had much real news about the second season of FOX's Tim Kring-produced Kiefer Sutherland vehicle 'Touch,' it's rare to hear of an actor's exit from the series before the season even premieres. And yet, we have already learned that former 'Prime Suspect' star Maria Bello has been primed to go out of 'Touch,' after having been upgraded to series regular. The second season of 'Touch' won't premiere until February 8, but find out why Bello left the series inside!
It may have been 2 years since '24' left FOX's airwaves, but don't give up on the idea of seeing Jack Bauer on the big screen just yet. Even though series star Kiefer Sutherland maintains a full schedule these days, with shooting soon to commence on a second season of 'Touch,' the actor remains adamant that audiences haven't seen the last of the CTU agent. So what needs to happen to get a '24' movie going?
FOX's high-profile new Kiefer Sutherland drama has only aired two episodes in total, but already the network has enough confidence in the show to inject it with a big dose of star-power. And given the latest addition's most recent outing, we think she might have enough time to stick around for a longer haul.
