24 Live Another Day

Kiefer Sutherland has indicated that he may be done with Jack Bauer, even as Fox keeps insisting there could be more 24. Well, it turns out those two statements aren’t mutually exclusive — because Fox is considering making the next installment without him.

That said, Fox is hopeful Sutherland will want to return eventually. The latest pitch includes an opportunity for Sutherland to come back, should he change his mind. More on the possibility of a 24 without Kiefer Sutherland after the jump. Read More »

DIE HARD: Alien VS Predator Teaser Trailer

Last month after we learned that Sony was discussing a possible crossover movie between 21 Jump Street and Men in Black, I wrote a list of 5 Movie Crossovers That Could Be Ridiculous Fun.

One of my ridiculous ideas was for 20th Century Fox to make Die Hard 24/7: Alien Invasion — John McClane, now head of security at a huge Casino resort either in China (because, well, co-production money) or Dubai, who is working to stop one of the biggest heists in the history of ever (another current trend). As it turns out, the mastermind trying to rob the casino is 24’s Jack Bauer (his daughter Kim is being held hostage, cougar or something, and he is being forced into it). The story starts as McClane vs. Bauer but all hell breaks loose when an alien ship crashes within the state of the art complex, which of course goes into lockdown and a swarm of xenomorphs are let on the lose. The two men must now work together against the bigger threat.

Ridiculous? Yes. One of my favorite comments from the post was “Die Hard/24/Alien Crossover is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I’d see it at least six times at the theatre.” The idea isn’t completely original, Fox was at one time developing a Die Hard 24/7 film which would have seen John McClane and Jack Bauer team up against a global threat but for whatever reason, the project fell into development hell and we got that horrible 24: Live Another Day event series instead.  Anyway, this is just a long intro to present a fan made trailer that was sent to me that almost visualizes my ridiculous crossover movie pitch. Hit the jump and watch the fan made DIE HARD: Alien VS Predator Teaser Trailer.

Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in 24 Live Another Day

Over 8 seasons and a miniseries, we’ve seen Jack Bauer survive some pretty nasty stuff. But even he may not be able to win the fight against his deadliest foe ever: Kiefer Sutherland‘s apparent disinterest in revisiting the franchise. In an interview, the 24 star stated that he didn’t expect to play Jack Bauer ever again, despite recent(ish) talk of a possible 24 movie. Read the 24 movie Kiefer Sutherland comments after the jump.  Read More »

5 Movie Crossovers That Could Be Ridiculous Fun

godzilla pacific rim“Legendary Battle” by Sean Sumagaysay

Yesterday we learned that Sony was discussing a possible crossover movie between their successful 21 Jump Street franchise and their evergreen Men in Black series. This is obviously the next evolution of the Marvel-style universe trend that all of Hollywood is chasing. I know we’re supposed to hate this sort of thing but I couldn’t stop thinking about which modern movie properties could be combined into mega crossover movie events that (however ridiculous) I’d actually want to see. After the jump I list the best opportunities for big screen movie crossovers.

Steven Soderbergh on Magic Mike set

  • Will Forte still really wants a MacGruber sequel
