Kiefer Sutherland: '24' movie script is done

Jack Bauer's time on television is quickly drawing to a close, but the world's most sleep-deprived counterterrorism agent has cleared one hurdle in making his way to the big screen. Kiefer Sutherland, who wrapped shooting on the eighth and final season of "24" last week, was in London over the weekend to speak at a BAFTA panel about the show. He told the audience, per IGN, that screenwriter Billy Ray ("Breach," "State of Play") has finished a script for the long-discussed feature film version of the series. Like the show, the movie will depict a crisis-filled day in Jack's life -- but it will condense the action to a more theater-friendly two hours or so. That might also let Jack and Co. cover a little more ground than they normally do on the show: "We've always had to have the situation come to us. "But now it's feasible to get him from Eastern Europe to England" during the course of the film. To Read More Click Here .

Top Moments: Betty, 24's Renee - and Who Else? - Say Goodbye

Lots of things came to an end this week on TV - for better and for worse. Blair dumped Chuck on Gossip Girl and House's Cameron and Chase signed their divorce papers. Jack got up for a glass of water, and in an instant, his 24 lady-love Renee was killed by a sniper. But not all the endings were bad. Dean finally outsmarted Zachariah on Supernatural, Betty Suarez got her happily-ever-after, and Melrose Place went out - we think - with a slap. Welcome to Top Moments: Hard to Say Goodbye Edition. 13. Second Most Tearful "I Do": Cate spends Life Unexpected's season finale grappling with her feelings for Baze while prepping for her wedding to Ryan. But this isn't The Graduate: Though Baze storms the church, it's immediately after Cate and Ryan exchange vows. Jeez, Baze is late for everything. 12. Best Family Resemblance: Brothers & Sisters' Kevin (Matthew Rhys) comes unhinged when he learns that an awkward teenage fistfight actually led to his pal being paralyzed, a fact his parents neglected to mention for more than 20 years. "What have I done?" he asks, as his face crumples in a very Sally Field-esque mask of worry lines. Like mother, like son. 11. Best Resurrection: In Supernatural's 100th episode, it seems like a beaten-down Dean has agreed to become Michael's vessel. But with a smile and a wink, Dean outsmarts and kills Zachariah, avoiding becoming the archangel's meat suit. And that's how Dean Winchester gets his groove - and his faith - back. 10. Best Motif: The pilot episode of Treme underscores the importance of music to the people of New Orleans with two telling moments. Antoine Batiste opens the hour by playing his trombone in a raucous second-line parade, the first since Hurricane Katrina. It's a stellar setup for the final scene of him blowing his horn in a funeral march. To Read More Click Here .

Tonight's TV Hot List: Monday, April 12, 2010

* House (8/7c Fox) No, House and his gang haven't followed their last patient into that black hole she was hallucinating, but it has been a month since we've heard from them. So what's new? Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) is back, for one thing. And she and everyone else will have plenty of time to catch up because the hospital has been put on lockdown because of a missing infant, and everyone must stay where they are. David Straithairn guest stars as a crotchety terminal patient who must pass the lockdown time with House, and Hugh Laurie makes his directorial debut. * Life Unexpected (8/7c The CW ) This drama about a foster teenager reconnecting with her birth parents wraps up its rookie season. As Cate prepares to marry Ryan, she attempts to sort out her feelings for both him and Baze, a man who has become an almost constant presence in her life ever since he reentered the picture with Lux. Meanwhile, Lux discloses some big news that could be life-changing for everyone around her. * 24 (9/8c Fox) For eight seasons now, fans have been rooting for Jack Bauer, super secret agent in the war against terror, even if we weren't always entirely sure we approved of his methods. But equally important to the series' success has been having somebody to draw our ire - and not just the obvious terrorist enemies. Returning tonight to the show for the stretch run is former president Logan (Gregory Itzin), the man whose picture ought to appear beneath the dictionary definition for "smarmy." * The Big Bang Theory (9:31/8:31c CBS) Since Sheldon loves superheroes and they usually have nemeses that never go away, it only seems fitting that Sheldon would have one, too. Wil Wheaton returns to battle Sheldon once again, and this time they face off in the bowling alley - though it's difficult to imagine Sheldon even picking up a ball, let alone playing. Also engaged in battle - but with words - are Penny and Leonard, whose argument threatens their relationship. * Castle (10:02/9:02 ABC) The late-night talk-show wars may have settled down, but it's still deadly terrain for talk-show hosts in Richard Castle's world. Tom Bergeron puts his gift of gab to good use playing Bobby Mann, a renowned host with a target on his back. He forewarns Castle of his pending death, but when Mann's prediction comes true Beckett isn't convinced of foul play. It then falls to Castle to change her mind. Meanwhile, a sexy celeb (Kelly Carlson) cozies up to Castle. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Monday, April 5, 2010

* 24 (8/7c Fox) Well, it's official. Jack Bauer will be looking for work after the last ten hours of this brutal day play out - this eighth season will be the last for 24. Not that we have to feel that bad for Jack (or Kiefer). Saving the nation from terrorist onslaught eight times looks pretty good on a résumé. He'll probably land on his feet. In the meantime, though, there's still work to do. In this two-hour episode, the bad guys have a radiological weapon in Manhattan ready to wipe out 40 square blocks, so Jack's got his hands full. * NCAA Basketball Championship (9/8c CBS) Sixty-two teams and 18 days ago, basketball fans across the country were anxiously awaiting this hard-court cornucopia, aglow with the optimism that only an unblemished tourney pool can provide. Well, most of those pre-tourney predictions have gone the way of uniform short shorts, but it's likely most would say this event has been one of the most exciting in memory. Still, there's this big one to come. If you're rooting for the underdog, a No. 5 seed has never won this event, but this is the third time since 2000 one has been in the title game. * Christian Siriano: Having a Moment (10/9c Bravo ) The fierce fashion world of designer and former Project Runway contestant Christian Siriano comes to the fore in this profile special. A needler who kept us in stitches during Season 4 of "Runway," Siriano is now captured in sundry fashion forays, including prepping for a runway show, overseeing his line, collaborating with his staffers, and interacting with such celebrities as Mena Suvari, Katrina Bowden and Tori Spelling. * Nurse Jackie (10/9c Showtime ) There are lines of credit, lines getting crossed, lines getting snorted, lines being toed and punch lines aplenty in this splendid outing. Kevin turns down O'Hara's offer to fund the girls' educations; Eddie shows up where he's not wanted; Grace's little friend catches Jackie hoovering some drugs; and Sam feels that Jackie is being overly vigilant with him. And then there are the cringingly dark-humored lines that get mentioned about a patient's "migrating testicles." Yes, it's a real medical condition. * Runaway Squad (10/9c A&E ) While working for the New York Police Department, Joe Mazzilli took an interest in helping runaways. Now retired, the 16-year veteran brings his experience and compassion together as he leads a team in finding runaways and reuniting them with their families. In the opener of this reality series, he and his team search for a Long Island teen. Source here

'24' Finale Will Include Eriq La Salle

The news that '24' is coming to an end with the finale of this season wasn't as big a shock as some might have thought a few years back. After all, the ratings were down and some folks wondered if '24' had jumped the you-know-what. Still, when a great show calls it a day, it's a sad time for television. At least in the finale, '24' will be bringing on some big names to gussy up the finish. 'ER's' Eriq La Salle will appear in the last two '24' episodes, for instance. Eriq will not be playing a surgeon asked to stitch together the remaining limbs of Jack Bauer before shipping him off to Kim in California. In fact, he won't be in scrubs at all. Eriq's going to be playing the Secretary General of the United Nations. He'll be a diplomat and could actually be asked to smile because his character is described as charming and regal. For those who remember him only as Peter Benton on 'ER,' it'll be great to see him in a new light. Also appearing on '24' in the remaining episodes will be Michael Madsen. That's right, the same Michael Madsen who was a stone-cold assassin in 'Kill Bill' and a great character actor in other films, as well.He's going to be Jim Ricker on '24,' a former military man who has a past with Jack.

Will 24 End Up on the Big Screen?

The end of 24's on Fox doesn't mean fans have seen the last of Jack Bauer. In the series' cancellation announcement, star Kiefer Sutherland sounded confident about a potential 24 movie. "Looking ahead to the future, Howard Gordon and I are excited about the opportunity to create the feature film version of 24," he said. The series, now in its eighth season, just received its pink slip Friday, but a big-screen version has been in the works since February. Screenwriter Billy Ray (State of Play, Shattered Glass) was tapped to helm the project, which would take Jack Bauer to Europe, according to Variety. Many of the show's current executive producers including Sutherland, as well as Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment, would be involved in the feature film adaptation. Gordon, the show's executive producer, told The Hollywood Reporter the movie would focus more on Jack Bauer than the CTU offices. "The opportunity is not to use the real-time aspect and also to do it on a scale the TV show never allowed," he said. Gordon said the script is still in a work in progress and a film could hit theaters as early as next year. "It depends on how well it comes out and Fox's appetite," Gordon said. "Most importantly it's about ending the show right and doing it with the same level of intensity and commitment that we started with." Would you see a 24 movie? Source Here
