'24' movie script in the works

FOX's "24" has taken steps to get the movie treatment, beginning with a script by "State of Play's" Billy Ray, reports Variety.

The pitched story places Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in Europe, where he will presumably save a dignitary or the world while racing against the clock.

So far, there's no indication how the real-time clock countdown would work on the big screen or how long the proposed film would be.

Don't get too excited just yet though. Having "24" playing at a theater near you is still contingent on a number of factors, including whether or not the series is picked up for another season at FOX or even another network. Considering all that goes into production, it's not really practical to do a movie while the series is still running.

"24" is currently in its eighth season, set in New York.
