Kiefer Sutherland still wants to do a '24' movie

Though any action for a movie rendition of '24' has been halted several times, the actor still hopes that he gets a chance to film the flick

Missing Jack Bauer? Well, so is the actor who plays the American television hero, Kiefer Sutherland. Though rumors have been going back and forth on whether or not the drama will ever hit theaters, Sutherland states that we would still love to do a film.

After eight action-packed seasons and a television movie of 24, rumors started that Fox and Sutherland were both interested in giving the series one big last goodbye and take it to the big screen. However, as MSN reports, the impending project has been put on and off a pause ever since the final episode of 24 aired in 2010. Recently, the director for the gig, Antoine Fuqua, recently hinted that the idea for the movie had faded.

While it's still unclear what the movie's fate may be, lead actor of the series Sutherland told The Sun that he is still very interested in making the film. He shared, “I want to make the 24 movie as long as I can run.”

The actor, who currently stars in Fox's Touch, reveals that he filmed a rare chase scene for the show, and was reminded of his former highly-physical scenes when playing agent Jack Bauer. He said, “I had to chase someone for the first time in a very long time and when we finished the scene, one of the crew said with a wink: ‘That felt pretty familiar didn’t it? Kind of cool to watch you run again. I didn’t know if you could any more.’”

The star's father, Donald Sutherland, is also a famous actor, and the Touch star shared that for the first time in their careers, they will be filming together for an upcoming movie. “We’re going to make a Western together,” the star said. "It’s a beautiful story. I’m very, very excited - and nervous - about doing it.”
