’24’ Movie Halted; Kiefer Sutherland Not Happy

Liam Hemsworth20th Century Fox has pulled the plug on its long-planned movie version of 24, and star Kiefer Sutherland might be partly to blame.

Sutherland — who was set to reprise his iconic role as Jack Bauer in the big-screen iteration — was reportedly insulted at Fox’s offer of a mere $1 million ($4 million less than he was expecting) to star in the film, which appears to have been the driving force behind the studio’s decision to halt the production.

Negotiations between the two sides are reported to have continued up until at least Tuesday night, before things turned very contentious (perhaps irreparably) and Fox abandoned ship.

Just yesterday, stories emerged about Sutherland’s excitement over the 24 movie, which he hoped to begin filming as early as next month.
