A 24 Movie is On the Clock

... Jack Bauer's European Vacation may be coming to a big-screen near you. Twentieth Century Fox is ga-ga over a new script that would see the 24 legend head across the pond, eat some Schnitzel, wear a beret, and drive a tiny scooter. 24 has always been considered for a film adaptation, but this is the closest it's ever gotten. Let's hope they do it justice and make it a 24-hour-long movie. [Variety]

... A day after Zach Gilford's post-Friday Night Lights plans were revealed, costar Minka Kelly—who is dating the luckiest bastard in the world—has a new job. She'll go from sweet, good-hearted Lyla Garrity to the sweet, good-hearted Kate on CBS' comedy True Love, which sounds like a clone of How I Met Your Mother. Minka was previously attached to the CW pilot Body Politic, but that show exploded in a fiery wreck. [THR]

... Chuck will go out with a two-hour series season finale on May 24. At least, we hope it's just a season finale, right? [Zap2It]

... More Chuck! Christopher Lloyd, of Taxi, Back to the Future, and Baby Geniuses fame, will join the list of impressive guest stars for the spy comedy when he plays Chuck's therapist in an episode slated to air sometime in April or May. [EW.com]

... David Letterman is trying to kill his staff. Senor Gap Tooth was clowning around with his coworkers while waiting for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, and tossed a football to stage manager Biff Henderson. Biff caught it, but tumbled into the audience and went to the hospital to check on his knee. Biff was immediately drafted by the Raiders. [NY Daily News]

... Melrose Place may not be coming back. Surprising, I know. The low-rated show that pretty much sucks all the way around is rumored to not be on the network's "To Renew" list, according to a bloated, worthless, bottom feeding, jerk-head. [Perez Hilton]

... Heroes signed off for life the season last night with a viewership of 4.4 million, more than last week, but much less than its glory days. Is that enough to get Heroes renewed? At this point, I think I speak for everyone except for that one girl with the "Milo is my Hero" shirt when I say, "God I hope not." [digital spy]

... And things are even worse for SyFy's Caprica, which was only watched by 1.128 million viewers last Friday. The ratings look even more pathetic with a .4 in adults. I know this is SyFy, but them's ugly numbers. [TV By the Numbers]

SyFy's Caprica? why would i watch a show telling how a world doomed to die. You already know how the story ends!

nd heroes only sallvation would be to dump the creative team and turn the heroes into actual heroes like the justice league. - but without the costumes ;) They have never been real heroes in the last 4 seasons, just people who react against others out to get them. And I enjoy the performance of the actor but Sylar must finally die. At least in comics the heroes fight someone other than their arch foe once in a while.

Well they could take whatever script is out there circulating as Die Hard V, change it to European locales and call it "24: The Movie"

like as "the sentinel"!? hey guys, have you really seen the kiefer's performance in "the sentinel"? it really indicate how kiefer is a good actor: even though in "the sentinel" he is a super-trained and capable special agent, he doesn't have anything in common with jack bauer, different way to walk, to run, to talk, even to move around his head or take objects, differten way to use the gun and so on....so i think a "24 movie" will be not like as "the sentinel" and i think that it will have the "run against time" at the centre (in someway), because it's the maintheme of the series

Haha. Yeah, a 24 movie would just like The Sentinel. Besides, isn't Kiefer like 45 or something??

A 24 movie would mean just another action movie. It could be exchanged with any number of ones out there. While the TV show allows for a long burn with lots of decoys. I do not know how much time they need to allow for all the double agents in a 2hr film.

i think people need to ease up on Heroes now. dont like it anymore dont watch it anymore. a 2.0 for Nbc with 4.4 million viewers should be ok to give the show a final season. it can attract more viewers if people like the new direction, etc. i dont think its dead

Somehow I doubt Jack's not headed anywhere for a 'vacation', but a European setting would be glorious for an action-packed movie!!

They did make a 24 movie, it was called The Sentinel.

Did you leave any more racist European stereotypes behind? Funny because every episode so far has been set in America and I don't remember Jack ever eating too many cheeseburgers or enforcing his beliefs on a foreign country in the guise of making people 'free'.........whoops, I guess lazy stereotypes are pretty easy huh?

See, but Heroes has gotten better. A lot of people have become so jaded when it comes to that show, so much so that everything, even the things that would have been considered amazing in season 1, is called stupid and crappy. I admit, they slipped in their quality, it would be hard to argue that the writers didn't, but I really hope they renew the show because there is no a very intriguing plot for next season that I would like to see play out. And, for the record, I am not the girl with the "Milo is my Hero" shirt. :)
