Keifer not only confirms a '24' movie but gave a precise date as to when shooting will begin. He also has an interesting quote about the challenges of making the movie. It will definitely be interesting to see what kind of plot Jack Bauer will be wrapped up in on the big screen.

"Extra's" AJ Calloway talked with actor Kiefer Sutherland, who said the "24" movie is on target to start shooting in 8 months.

"It's a very difficult thing to take something you've done for eight years, almost two hundred episodes, and try to find a story that's going to be unique and yet service the history of the show as well," Sutherland said.

In the meantime, Kiefer is heading to the stage to star in a Broadway revival of the play "That Championship Season," with "The Good Wife" star Chris Noth.

"I grew up in Canada playing hockey, so basketball is a little foreign to me and I don't think I have the height anyway," joked Sutherland. The play is about four friends each going through a mid-life crisis, and was made into a 1982 movie starring Bruce Dern and Martin Sheen.

Sutherland explained, "Four men dealing with a sense they're no longer relevant."
