Everybody's favorite exterminator of terrorists will take a bit longer to get to the sliver screen. According to Entertainment Weekly who talked with 24 executive producer Howard Gordon, 20th Century Fox rejected a script from screenwriter Billy Ray (State Of Play) that will see the return of Kiefer Sutherland's long suffering CTU agent Jack Bauer:

“As far as I know, it is in suspended animation,” Howard Gordon, the longtime executive producer of 24 who is also expected to produce the big screen version, told EW exclusively. ”There is talk about re-approaching it. I understand (director/producer) Tony Scott is meeting with Kiefer to talk about ideas. People are still talking about it.”

24, which ran for eight seasons on Fox Television, recently ended in last year in May.
