While actual details of who is actually doing what on the gestating film version of the hit TV series "24," Kiefer Sutherland just can't stop talking about it. Last month he hit "The View" and said the film was coming next year and that elements of Billy Ray’s script (which was rejected by the studio) will be utilized. “Billy did a fantastic job and there are aspects of that story [that will remain],” Sutherland said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled.” He also said that Tony Scott was working on the film, though that has yet to be confirmed. But leave it to mega-producer Brian Grazer to keep the buzz going about the movie.

Director Matt Reeves has made leaps and bounds in his film career, transitioning from television to the monster movie "Cloverfied" and then helming the absolutely fantastic "Let Me In" last year. Why anyone would want Reeves to return to the "Cloverfield" world instead of using his talents for something much more worth his time (*ahem*"The Wolverine"*ahem*) is a bit beyond us, but the project is still on the table. Earlier this year, Reeves told us that he hasn't "really decided what that would be yet” when asked about "Cloverfield 2" and well, it's remains pretty much the status quo.

Sometimes Hollywood is like a magical genie: if you talk about a project enough times, it will get a greenlight, simply because people interpret "talking about" to be "buzz" and "anticipation" which, somewhere down the line, is supposed to equal dollars. So this sudden chatter regarding a "24" movie might be doing the TV adaptation a favor, as it recently hit a roadblock with Fox rejecting a script from "Flightplan" and "Breach" scribe Billy Ray.

'My Name Is Jack Bauer, And I Am In Development Hell'Bad news for those hoping for the further adventures of Kiefer Sutherland's rogue CTU agent Jack Bauer: apparently Fox has rejected a script from high-profile scribe Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "Salt") for a feature film continuing the adventures of the lead character of "24," the hit series that ran for eight years and successfully tapped into that raw post-9/11 paranoia during the Bush years. The intention all along was to push the show into the cinematic world, but so-so ratings for the final season, coupled with likely budgetary concerns (the series might as well have been called "Shooting Down Exploding Helicopters") have put the kibosh on big screen plans.
