Ever since FOX announced the pilot for 24 reboot 24: LEGACY fans wanted to know whether Kiefer Sutherland would return as Jack Bauer, although he did not, he’s still an executive producer on the show. Plus he also has an upcoming ABC show coming this fall, Designated Survivors. Putting that aside, who else? What about Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe?
Just recently, executive producer Evan Katz told TVLine that plans are being made so that the techie could appear in the forthcoming reboot.
“We have plans. Right now, our clear priority is [establishing] these new characters, and have the audience build a relationship with them. But we have some surprises planned.”
This reboot centers on former Army Ranger (played by Corey Hawkins) who returns to the U.S. and turns to the CTU for help in saving his life.
Executive Producer Manny Cotto said:
“The premiere of the season is based on a real story about the guys who took out Osama Bin Laden. It struck us as a fascinating [introduction] for a character who participated in a huge mission to take out a terrorist leader and then had to go back to his normal life. And then what would happen if [someone] started killing off the members of his team one by one? He’s the one who realizes this and goes on a large quest to find out why this is happening. It was a way to start fresh [with a] brand new character– a character that is NOT Jack Bauer. Jack Bauer was a seasoned agent. This character is NOT. This character is a soldier who is not used to this world of espionage.”
Starring Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) and chronicles the race against the clock to stop a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The trailer also reveals the details of Hawkins’ character Eric Carter who was part of an elite Army Rangers unit deployed by CTU to dispose of a terrorist leader. Back in America and trying to get back to normal, Carter finds out the leader’s crew has tracked his unit down, and the clock begins to tick from there. Miranda Otto (Homeland), Jimmy Smits and Teddy Sears also co-star.
24: LEGACY will follow the original series’ real-time format but its order is of 12 episodes. Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer, Manny Coto and Evan Katz executive produce with director Stephen Hopkins and 24 star Kiefer Sutherland.
The series will be premiering after the Super Bowl on February 5, 2017, which marks the network’s first drama to have its world premiere after the nation’s most-watched TV event. The show’s two-night premiere continues on February 6, when it settles into its Monday 8PM time slot.
While Marvel Studios continues to tease their upcoming GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, just recently writer-director James Gunn, who’s frequently posting on Facebook, took part of a Facebook Live to answer fan Q&A and most recently revealed plot details of a potential Doctor Strange Guardians of the Galaxy connection. You can watch the full video down below!
Gunn teased that there’s still much that we don’t know about Guardians 2 saying:
“I think we’ve given out the people that are in GUARDIANS 2 that we’re going to give out so far.”
So far what’s been confirmed is that the film will pick up two months after the events of Vol. 1 and that Sylvester Stallone is indeed playing a mysterious character, and as revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Kurt Russell is playing Ego the Living Planet aka Star-Lord’s father.
Gunn also hinted that we’re probably not going to see an adult version of Groot for some time. Based on the Comic-Con footage, we get to have a child version.
“Don’t expect baby Groot to do too much changing in the second movie.”
He doesn’t comment on Vin Diesel’s Facebook Live announcement saying that Guardians will need appear in Joe and Anthony Russo’s upcoming Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, though he does remind fans that Vol. 2 might be where he says goodbye to the team. At the moment he hasn’t decided whether he’ll do Vol. 2 and that the Guardians team itself may ultimately take different paths through the MCU.
There’s also the potential Doctor Strange Guardians of the Galaxy connection in Gunn’s description of the beastie, an “Abilisk” featuring in the film’s recently revealed concept art.
“[It’s] a multidimensional being. The Guardians have been hired to fight him.”
