Kiefer Sutherland Says '24' Movie Takes Place Six Months After Series Finale and Is Direct Continuation of Show

With his new FOX show Touch set to premiere soon, Kiefer Sutherland has been making the rounds talking up the Tim Kring (Heroes, Crossing Jordan) drama. Along the way, various sites have been asking him to update them on where the long-gestating 24 movie stands.

Speaking with Collider, Sutherland said that the film will be a direct continuation set six months from the end of the TV series. This means **SPOILER ALERT** we're following Jack Bauer on the run from authorities after going rogue in a quest for redemption for a government cover-up. Hey, that kind of sounds like a Jason Bourne movie.
 
There's no director attached, but a script is in place that Sutherland says he's "very, very excited about," and the film is scheduled to being shooting at the end of April.
 
As far as the time element, Sutherland says the movie will be a two-hour capsulation of a 24-hour day in the life of Bauer.
 
"It's two hours, representing 24 hours. The movie is not in real time. It's a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day."
 
24 is scheduled to be released sometime in 2013.
