For fans of the Kiefer Sutherland TV Series 24, it has been a mighty long road towards the promised movie, but if Training Day director Antoine Fuqua, who was attached to the project since last year, has anything to say about it, the movie version may have now reached the end of the line.  Hit the jump for the full scoop on the 24 movie.

24-movieMaking the press rounds for his latest film, the political thriller Olympus Has Fallen, Fuqua gave word to The Playlist about the status of 24:

“Yeah, that’s not happening. I don’t think it’s gonna happen at all, definitely not with me,” Fuqua shrugs, putting the stake in what has always been a pretty tenuous project. “I met with Kiefer [Sutherland], Fox wanted to do it, it was a matter of his schedule before he went off to do his new show [Touch]. I don’t think he was able to get a proper agreement with Fox. The time just passed, and I went off to go to what I was doing.”

Though it sounds like Fuqua has been off the project for quite some time, it feels like overall the project really is petering out.  What with the show ending its run now over three years ago it doesn’t seem like anyone has the same vested interest as they once did in it, but this is Hollywood after all, where one can never truly say never.
