Following Kiefer Southerland's well-publicised (http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/bizarre/usa/2934495/Kiefer-Sutherland-has-boozy-night-out-in-London.html) night out in London's Soho last week, the actor recovered in time to talk 24 (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/822/822156.html) at an exclusive BAFTA Q&A.

The star, still clearly emotional having wrapped the eighth and final season of the show last week, said that he was looking forward to now concentrating on the spin-off movie.

Keifer Sutherland, in conversation at BAFTA on Friday.


According to Sutherland, screenwriter Billy Ray (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/916/916974.html) (State of Play (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/894/894689.html)) finished the film's script a couple of weeks back, with the star planning to read it when he returns to the States.

The film will condense the show's 24 hour time-frame into two hours, meaning the plot won't be constrained by geography.

"We've always had to have the situation come to us" he explained. "But now it's feasible to get [Jack Bauer] from Eastern Europe to England [during the movie]."

Sutherland also hinted that the plot will hark back to season one, with the crisis more insular. "It doesn't have to be a bomb" he continued "It can be something personal that people understand."

The star gave no indication as to when production with start, but with the script written and his schedule now relatively clear, expect the 24 movie to hit sooner rather than later.

Nice! Cant wait for this! I just wonder what the script/plot will be like?

They've covered a lot in the 8 series and even done a nuclear threat a few times so there going to have to come up with something new and improved!

Fingers crossed.

Tony Almeida breaking out of prison and wreaking havoc all over Europe. That assassin girl Mandy from season 1 will be his associate/lover. Bauer kills them both after Mandy kills Kim. That assuming any of these people live through the next few episodes of season 8, since characters are dropping like flies :eek:

Excellent! I was nearly heartbroken when I heard they were cancelling the show after this season...but at least this gives me some sort of redemption (get it? :p)

I do get it. And I remember when that guy stepped on the mine... That angered me.

Anyway.. Almeida better be in this. And I wish they could bring Castle back from the dead, I liked that guy. Ya remember 'im? Even though he only had like three lines for every two episodes, he was cool. Killed in a humiliating way, though.

Although, if it is back at season 1, Castle won't be dead.. But he won't be with CTU.. Dammit.

Back at season 1? Is it supposed to be a prequel??

"It doesn't have to be a bomb" he continued "It can be something personal that people understand."Well, I didn't notice the word "Hark" when I skimmed through that. So perhaps it is not a prequel, and perhaps Castle will come back from the dead. I don't know. Or maybe it is a flashback! Maybe at the end Jack will wake up and flip off the audience.

Hah. A solid point. I'd still like to meet the guy, see for myself if he's a total a-hole.

Chloe and uh...that's it lmao :p

Well.. Almeida's still alive. Dollar says he'll be villain. Unless the movie is taking place in season 1. I barely remember season 1. As long as the movie doesn't have James Badge Dale in it, I'll enjoy it. Ugh.. Damn you, Season 4. :mad:
