While he’s on hiatus from TV’s ‘24’, Kiefer Sutherland will not be spending his time shooting the long rumored, much discussed 24 movie. Instead, according to Variety he’s doing a thriller called Mirrors.

The movie is being directed by Alexandre Aja. He’s one of fringe members of the big torture porn push in the horror industry. His last movie was that remake of The Hills Have Eyes, and before that it was the much talked about 2003 movie Haute tension, known as High Tension in the United States.

Mirrors doesn’t sound like it will be another gorefest for him. Don’t expect random chainsaws hacking off Kiefer’s body parts. The movie is about a strange mirror which brings out the worst in people whenever they look at it. Sutherland will play the lead, an ex-cop stuck working mall security when he discovers something strange with the mirrors in one of the department stores he guards. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the biggest bastard of them all? You are!

I like Kiefer Sutherland, but my brain automatically shuts off whenever I hear an actor I like is playing a cop. Cops are such an overdone role. Everyone plays a cop. Kiefer does a cop movie at least once every other year. I’d rather see him as a vampire or a creepy doctor with a gimpy leg. There’s no challenge to playing a cop, even in a twisted thriller. It’s kind of like playing the mentally handicapped, except you get Oscars for pretending to be retarded and you get lots of money for standing in front of a camera and waving around a plastic gun.
