The Facts
Facts about the movie are hard to come by as the only source for information at the moment is hearsay from the cast and crew and with ideas and plans for the movie constantly changing not much is considered concrete at this stage.

6/7/06 - Twentieth Century Fox has closed a deal with series creators Robert Cochran and Joel Surnow, as well as showrunner Howard Gordon, to bring the Kiefer Sutherland real-time thriller to the bigscreen. Surnow and Cochran will write the script, with Gordon working on the story. All three will produce via their Real Time Prods. banner, as will Imagine's Brian Grazer.

Rumors

Whilst a script has been completed, the film has been delayed indefinitely and will not likely start production until the end of the show's run.

The movie will be set in Afghanistan, London and Washington, D.C.

The character of Audrey will play an integral part in the film and they are keeping her alive in Season 6 (and possibly further Seasons) in order to have her be part of the film. Chloe will also feature in the movie.

Jon Cassar is in top position to direct and most of the crew from the show will work on the film.

The movie will follow along the continuum of Jack's life but won't be tied to the TV show narratively.

The movie will be shot in Europe. The shoot will take place in London and Prague. Then Morocco will be used as a location - probably as an aspect of the Middle East.

Three segments of real time will cover a 24-hour period. These are likely to take place in three different parts of the world.

The movie will be written during the Season 5 and Season 6 hiatus and will start production during the Season 6 and Season 7 hiatus with a target release of Summer 2008. Kiefer Sutherland will not shoot other films during the two hiatus to focus his attention entirely on the movie. (UPDATE) A script was written in the aforementioned hiatus and Sutherland took time off other projects to focus his attention on the show, however a movie was ultimately delayed and will not likely be shot between Season 6 and Season 7.

The movie will bridge the gap between the Season following and preceding production.

The character Kiefer Sutherland will portray will have no connections to any other characters, effectively starting again. The movie series will have its own cannon and will comfortably co-exist with the TV series.

The movie will be Jack Bauer international and the storyline will be something the TV show can't do.

The first film will be set before season one, and with the rumors of Kiefer handing the leading role reigns in the TV version over to another cast member, it may have something to say about the way he exits the show.

Kiefer has inked a deal to star in three 24 movies for FOX. Kiefer has mentioned on several occasions that it could be a wonderful series of movies.

Bruce Willis has shown interest to cameo in one of the films. Kiefer has been quoted as describing the movie a Die Hard-like spectacle.

The first hour of the movie will not occur in real time, then something major will happen and the clock will start ticking.
