The “24” Movie Has Been Called Off?

“Olympus Has Fallen” director Antoine Fuqua says that the film version of the hit Fox action series “24” is dead. Fuqua was the front runner to direct the project, which was put on indefinite hold a year ago.

“Yeah, that’s not happening. I don’t think it’s gonna happen at all, definitely not with me. I met with Kiefer [Sutherland], Fox wanted to do it, it was a matter of his schedule before he went off to do his new show [Touch].”

At the time there were budget issues causing issues in negotiations between Fox and star Kiefer Sutherland. Fuqua adds that:

“I don’t think he [Sutherland] was able to get a proper agreement with Fox. The time just passed, and I went off to go to what I was doing.”

Fuqua’s next project is the boxing film “Southpaw” which is aiming to begin production at the end of the Summer.
