You just can’t keep Jack Bauer down. After the success of the twelve-episode mini-series, Live Another Day, talks of having Bauer hit the big screen are heating up. The big push for the movie is Imagine Entertainment, but they have yet to pitch the idea to 20th Century Fox.
Since watching this past season, I can definitely see a movie working now. What was great about the twelve episode format was the lack of filler episodes. Sure, it followed the 24 template in regards to plot, but it never felt like the show was slowing down.
With a movie now being talked about again, the television side of the show is definitely going to make its way back to Fox. Fox Networks CEO Peter Rice said as much in July. “We haven’t had a specific conversation about it coming back yet, but I’m sure we will in the future. It’s a wonderful franchise. When you look at the show itself it has many more stories to tell. I think we need to sit down and talk to the creators.”
Hey, I will take both. You can never have enough Jack Bauer. Plus, it would be great to see Tony sneak back into the picture. That would make for a great season.
What do you think? More Jack? Or, is he destined to live out his years in a Russian prison?
