Tony Scott To Direct The 24 Movie? Apparently He Has An Idea…

Any interest I had in the big-screen movie of 24 was related to Billy Ray, the man originally tapped to write its screenplay. His record with political and conspiracy thrillers is pretty solid, and his own film Breach in particular is rather compelling, exciting and provocative stuff. It’s about as far removed from 24 as you can imagine, however.

No surprise, then, but some disappointment, with the news that he’s no longer involved with the film. The show’s executive producer Howard Gordon dropped the news in an interview with Assignment X (via Moviehole). He also revealed what direction the film’s development may be moving in next:

The movie is something that right now I’m not engaged or involved in. The rumors are that [director] Tony Scott has an idea that he is going to run it by or has run it by Kiefer Sutherland. I don’t know what the status of it is.

Okay, so this is only a rumour, and it comes from somebody not involved with the film at all. On the other hand, I’d say Gordon is in a great position to hear whispers from the folk who actually are making the movie, so I’d expect there’s likely to be something to his report.

I wonder what idea Mr. Scott might be proposing? Probably something about Denzel Washington.

We lose the writer-director of Breaking Glass and Breach and get instead the man behind Domino and Spy Game? Tsk.

Ach, why do I care anyway? It’s only 24. Never cared for it in the first place.
