Kiefer Sutherland Jumps On Board Parisian-Set Heist Pic, Not The 24 Movie Like You Hope
The only project Kiefer Sutherland fans want to hear the actor attached to needs to have 24 in the title. Unfortunately for them, news out of Cannes could put super-agent Jack Bauer’s planned feature-length adventure on hold for a little while longer.
Sutherland, instead, will join the cast of Brad Mirman’s heist picture Sleight of Hand, according to Deadline. Gerard Depardieu, Til Schweiger, Thomas Jane, Johnny Hallyday, Jon Lovitz and Eric Cantona already have been cast in the film, which plans to shoot this summer in Paris. Mirman and Sutherland collaborated on the Hulu-based television series The Confession, which also starred John Hurt, but it will be interesting to see what they can do with a larger budget in an international setting.
As for the rumored 24 film, there hasn’t been much to report as of late. Scripts have been traded back and forth, and Sutherland stated a while back that he still believes it will happen. In the meantime, he’s staying busy by acting in other projects, but the longer executives wait to return to Bauer’s high-octane world of global counterterrorism, the foggier our memories become. How long are we willing to wait to see Jack Bauer fighting evil on the big screen? Has the window of opportunity for a 24 movie already passed?
