24 producer Howard Gordon has given an update on the proposed film version of the show.

Kiefer Sutherland, who played Jack Bauer on the Fox drama, announced in January that a movie spinoff would begin filming in April or May.

"I'm involved intimately with all of the drafts and with all of the people," Gordon told Deadline. "Including Mark Bomback on the rewrites and with Kiefer. There are a lot of people involved from [production company] Imagine and 20th [Century Fox]."

He continued: "I've kind of been enlisted as the keeper of the flame from the TV show and representing it in its next iteration. I'm not sure what kind of credit I'll be having on it yet."

Gordon also insisted that there is still an audience for the 24 film, two years after the show ended.

"You know, [Fox Filmed Entertainment executive] Tom Rothman is a very smart guy," he said. "He wouldn't do a 24 movie just to do it but only if he honestly believed it could stand on its own."

Gordon confirmed to Digital Spy in November 2010 that Mary Lynn Rajskub will reprise her role as Chloe O'Brian in the film.
