Sutherland, who plays federal agent Jack Bauer on the show, recently joked a spoof version would make great cinema viewing.
But he now tells MTV.com plans for a straight blockbuster film are already in motion.
He says, "The 24 movie would be a two-hour representation of a 24-hour day. That would be the first time that we would not do something in real time, but the characters would obviously all be derivative of the show.
"The timing issue is something the writers are working on right now. But the sky's the limit at that point for them, because we would not be restricted by the time element."
