Kiefer Sutherland enthousiast over 24: Legacy script

Eerder werd bekend dat Straight Outta Compton acteur Corey Hawkins de hoofdrol gaat spelen in de spin-off van 24. Hij zal in de schoenen stappen van Kiefer Sutherland‘s Jack Bauer. In 24: Legacy speelt hij het personage Eric Carter. Sutherland verscheen op Live with Kelly and Michael om zijn nieuwe film Forsaken te promoten. Hij gaf tevens zijn mening over de pilot van 24: Legacy.

Toen Kiefer gevraagd werd of hij nog eens terug zou keren in de serie gaf hij het volgende antwoord:

“I’ve learned enough over the last few years to not say never. We were never going to do a season nine when we finished after the eighth season. I said we were done. So I’m going to just say we’ll see. Howard Gordon and I have worked together for ten years and he showed me the script and we had conversations about it. It’s really cool. I’ll be the first person to watch it and I think it’s going to be a great show. I think we’ve always talked about doing [a new series]. In fact, from the very first season that I was doing, I’ve always said that I thought the show itself was really the star, the idea is fantastic. So I think it could go on for a very long time and I think they’ve got an amazing cast and it’s really well written. I’m very excited to see it.”

Volgens FOX zal de pilot, “retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with each episode representing one hour of an eventful day.” Hoewel FOX een spinoff maakt met een nieuwe held, is het niet onmogelijk dat Jack Bauer ergens in de serie terug zal komen. 24: Legacy zal deze winter worden opgenomen en zal worden geregisseerd door Stephen Hopkins. Op de vraag of we oude personages zullen terug zien zei FOX’s Dana Walden, “never say never.”

Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24), Manny Coto (24) en Evan Katz (24) zijn de uitvoerend producenten.
