Jack Bauer Runs Out of Time; Antoine Fuqua Says '24' Movie Is Dead

Ever since it went off the air in 2010, the enormous fan base for Fox's action-thriller television series 24 have been hearing the on-again, off-again rumors of a potential movie. It looks like the movie has moved back to no-go status.

Antoine Fuqua, who had been rumored to be working on the project, spoke during a press day for Olympus Has Fallen and said, "Yeah, that's not happening. I don't think it's gonna happen at all, definitely not with me. I met with Kiefer [Sutherland], Fox wanted to do it, it was just a matter of his schedule before he went off to do his new show [Touch]. I don't think he was able to get a proper agreement with Fox. The time just passed and I went off to go to what I was doing." [The Playlist]

In addition to the scheduling issue, budget disputes plagued the project and Sutherland wanted a lot more money that the studio was willing to offer him.

Though the series did start to lose some of its quality in its later seasons, it brought in massive ratings during its prime and was widely popular. Even now, there's certainly an audience for a 24 movie.

Do you want a 24 movie? Do you still hold out hope that Sutherland and Fox can reach an agreement or are you content to let the series end where it did? (It's been a while, so check out the final minutes of the series here.)
