24 Film Project Dead Says Antoine Fuqua
Antoine Fuqua, whose film "Olympus Has Fallen" will be out next week, has said that the film project of the hit series "24" is dead.
Fuqua, who was the frontrunner to direct, said, "Yeah, that's not happening. I don't think it's gonna happen at all, definitely not with me. I met with Kiefer [Sutherland], Fox wanted to do it, it was a matter of his schedule before he went off to do his new show [Touch]." He went on to say, "I don't think he [Sutherland] was able to get a proper agreement with Fox. The time just passed, and I went off to go to what I was doing."
Fuqua's next project will be "Southpaw", a boxing film. Production is set to begin at the end of the summer.
