Jack will be back!

Kiefer Sutherland, who played counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer on “24” for eight seasons, is preparing to bring the character to the big screen. The actor told the Manichi Daily News (Tokyo, Japan) that a number of directors have expressed interest in helming Bauer’s next really bad day. “Some amazing filmmakers have made themselves available to make the film, so we’re very excited,” Sutherland said during a press conference in Japan earlier this week. “It’s going to look, I think, very different from the show.”
