Kiefer Sutherland has revealed he’s “cautiously optimistic” that filming will begin on the movie adaptation of 24 this spring.

The actor said the script for the big-screen version of the hit series is ready to go, but producers are up against the clock in the hunt for a director.

“We’ve got a script that we’re very excited about, we’re looking for directors right now,” he said.

Sutherland, who has returned to television with new drama series Touch, said he hopes to shoot the film after shooting on the show’s first series wraps.

“We’re trying to do this as quickly as possible so we’re ready to shoot in May because there’s a very small window between when I finish Touch and when I would start up again,” he explained.

“So it’s a juggling act right now, but I’m still cautiously optimistic.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
