For all you 24 fans who don’t think they can cope with the end of the mucho shortened 6th season in 2007 and the re-energized 7th season come January 2009 will be happy to know that there is a 2-hour t.v. movie set for release October 2008.
Season 6 got alot of flack for taking the (already suspension of disbelief buggering) storylines too far beyond the line of reality, with Kiefer’s Jack being brought back from the dead a record breaking amount of times. There had been talk of a cinema-debut for the 24-format, which seems to have been scuppered for now in favour of a Digi-TV release only.
Whether or not they can call the film 24 is as of yet unanswered, and at the very least, debatable. Its one thing to squash the ‘real-time’ show down to 24 seperate 40 minute episodes, but squeezing an entire action packed day into 120 minutes? Even for Mr. Bauer, that seems a bit much.
