Today, at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, actor/executive producer Kiefer Sutherland was in attendance to talk about his upcoming Fox drama series Touch, which debuts with a series preview on January 25th, prior to its March 19th premiere date. While we will later run what he had to say about his new TV project, illustrating the ways that science and spirituality intersect and showing that we are all interconnected and tied in invisible ways to those whose lives we are destined to alter and impact, we wanted to make sure to share his comments about the status of the 24 movie, which he hopes will shoot this Spring. Check out what he had to say after the jump:
Question: Now that you’re doing this series, what is the status of the 24 movie?
KIEFER SUTHERLAND: The status on the movie is that, hopefully, we will be shooting the end of April, beginning of May.
Do you see the movie as a conclusion to the story in the series?
SUTHERLAND: I see it as a continuation. The script that we’ve got right now, which I’m very, very excited about, is relatively a direct continuation. It’s within six months from the end of the last episode. We’ll see where it goes from there.
The plan for the movie is still two hours, and not in real time?
SUTHERLAND: It’s two hours, representing 24 hours. The movie is not in real time. It’s a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day.
Is everybody from the cast back?
SUTHERLAND: I can’t say that.
