Kiefer confirms 24 film start date

Kiefer Sutherland will start filming the 24 film this year

Kiefer Sutherland has confirmed he will start shooting the long awaited 24 movie later this year.

Speaking during a panel discussion for his new series, Touch, the actor revealed he will step back into Jack Bauer's shoes in late April/early May, reports Access Hollywood.

The big screen version of the award-winning hit TV series - which ran for eight seasons, concluding in 2010 - has been in the pipeline for some time.

According to CraveOnline.com, when asked if the plot would conclude Bauer's story, the star said it would be more of a "continuation", starting a few months after the final series ended.

"I think the script that we've got right now which I'm very, very excited about is relatively a direct continuation," he said. "We're talking within six months from the end of that episode and we'll see where it goes from there."

But before he gets back to fighting terrorism, Kiefer will star as a single dad to an emotionally challenged son in Touch.

The 45-year-old said he hadn't been planning to return to TV so soon, but that he couldn't turn down the role because it "spoke to me on a really profound level".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
