For as intrigued as we were to learn upcoming '24' revival, '24: Live Another Day,' would include fan-favorite Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn-Rajskub) and have more of an international flair, one crucial question remains: How will the famously-formatted series condense its story to 12 hours, and what might have changed for Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) when the story picks up?
Earlier today we heard the fantastic news that FOX's 2014 '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' would return classic CTU analyst Chloe O'Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub) to assist in Jack Bauer's latest outing, but very little is known of what the revival series' story will actually reveal in its 12-episode run. Now, new comments from FOX chairman Kevin Reilly have given us a clue what to expect from '24: Live Another Day'
Well, this should come as very little surprise. For as long as FOX decided to revive the '24' franchise with upcoming limited series '24: Live Another Day,' we never expected Kiefer Sutherland to prove the only franchise veteran reprising his role. Thankfully, Jack's phone will once again be buzzing with the sounds of Mary Lynn Rajskub's voice, returning in her analyst role as Chloe O’Brian.

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.'

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?

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.

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.

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!
