Jack Bauer returns with a two-hour prequel movie

24 Redemption

American action hero Jack Bauer returns in an upcoming movie that will bridge the sixth and seventh seasons of hit television drama 24.

Filmed on location in Cape Town, South Africa, and Los Angeles, 24: REDEMPTION stars Emmy Award winner Kiefer Sutherland along with new cast members Cherry Jones, Robert Carlyle, Gil Bellows and Academy Award winner Jon Voight.

After sacrificing everything for his country, Jack Bauer (Sutherland) is wanted by the U.S. government and now stands to lose the only thing he has left: his freedom.

Working as a missionary in Africa, Bauer is called upon to stop a ruthless warlord from drafting innocent children into his murderous militia. First, Jack must confront his own torturous past and face an impossible decision that will change his life forever.

A decision that will set the stage and raise the stakes for season seven, which debuts in January 2009.

Judging by this three-minute trailer (shown below), itโ€™s great to see the action shifting to new surroundings after six years in downtown LA. I am quite excited by this movie and it will certainly renew my interest in the show after that frustrating strike that postponed the new series last year. Bring on November 23rd!

  1. Cant wait for this! It’ll be nice to see Jack in a different type of story going off what the film looks like. Kind of Jack does Rambo??

    Will have to see what Sky are doing about showing this. I’m sure they will, but if it is too long after, then…..well we all know what many people will be doing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    looks like they plan just to carry on with the script that only got half done before the strike.

    Well looks like 2009 will be another year of me having to avoid 24 till the DVD comes out, as Walking knows, I dont watch it on TV as I hate having to wait a week for just one episode each time. So roll on November for the DVD release

  2. Check out this new trailer to season seven of 24. It features gun action, cars being smashed, dramatic helicopter action, planes avoiding each other and loads of explosions!

    I can’t wait for this and looking forward with much enthusiasm to the 24 two-hour ‘real time’ film. Jack Bauer is back!
