Jack Bauer Ready To Hit The Silver Screen http://insidepulse.com/2014/09/01/24-movie-in-works-jack-bauer-ready-to-hit-the-silver-screen/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/09/01/24-movie-in-works-jack-bauer-ready-to-hit-the-silver-screen/#comments Mon, 01 Sep 2014 19:09:54 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=366104 Veronica Mars movie, it appears FOX is ready to take Jack Bauer to the big screen. ]]> Hot on the heels of the Veronica Mars movie, it appears FOX is ready to take Jack Bauer to the big screen.

TVLine is reporting that Imagine Entertainment is seriously considering a movie based around the hit TV series. While the rumours have swirled before, this time they appear to be serious. Imagine Chairman Brian Grazer is apparently sold on the pitch, which has yet to be brought to 20th Century Fox.

TVLine contacted 20th Century FOX who declined to comment.

Last winter, while promoting 24: Live Another Day, Kiefer Sutherland said not to abandon hopes for a movie. “The film’s an ongoing situation,” he said. “There’s always an opportunity to do that.”

Freddie Prinze Jr. Calls Out Kiefer Sutherland; Says Working With TV’s Jack Bauer Made Him Want To Quit Acting http://insidepulse.com/2014/07/28/freddie-prinze-jr-calls-out-kiefer-sutherland-says-working-with-tvs-jack-bauer-made-him-want-to-quit-acting/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/07/28/freddie-prinze-jr-calls-out-kiefer-sutherland-says-working-with-tvs-jack-bauer-made-him-want-to-quit-acting/#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 23:30:43 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=360902 Perennial good guy Freddie Prinze Jr. apparently has a mean steak.

At this past weekend’s Comic-Con in San Diego, Prinze revealed shocking details about what TV’s Jack Bauer is really like on-set and said that working with him on 24 in 2010 made him want to quit acting.

“I did 24. It was terrible. I hated every moment of it,” Prinze said. “Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That’s not me talking trash; I’d say it to his face. I think everyone that’s worked with him has said that. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped.”

Today, Sutherland’s rep responded in a statement to E! News.

“Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze Jr., more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie’s grievances. Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best.”

Wow.

24 Spoilers: Finale’s Alternate Ending, Update On Movie Plans http://insidepulse.com/2014/07/25/24-spoilers-finales-alternate-ending-update-on-movie-plans/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/07/25/24-spoilers-finales-alternate-ending-update-on-movie-plans/#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 19:38:50 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=359456 The last time we saw Jack Bauer, he was being carted away by the Russians as he traded himself to save Chloe O’Brien.

What fans of the series might not know is that there was an alternate ending planned that would have once again resulted in Jack getting the last laugh.

“We went through so many ideas for that ending,” Sutherland told fans at 24: Live Another Day’s Comic-Con panel on Thursday. “We thought, maybe for the DVD, Jack will pull out a hand grenade, and just blow [the helicopter] up. We had never had that kind of freedom before.”

As it stands, Bauer really will be going to Moscow, but where things go from there is anyone’s guess. Executive producer Jon Cassar would not confirm a new season, but did say that the movie rumours are more substantial than initially realized.

“We’re still talking about the movie,” he said to much applause. “It’s still potentially out there, so that’s good news.”

First Look: Fox’s New Drama Touch Starring Kiefer Sutherland http://insidepulse.com/2011/10/07/first-look-foxs-new-drama-touch-starring-kiefer-sutherland/ http://insidepulse.com/2011/10/07/first-look-foxs-new-drama-touch-starring-kiefer-sutherland/#comments Fri, 07 Oct 2011 15:00:10 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=270176 It seems fitting that Kiefer Sutherland’s return to network television is in a series that involves a long season arc. After all, it was his show, 24, that spawned countless imitators, some of which were cancelled or couldn’t progress pass a single year.

His new series, Touch, will have its premiere in spring 2012, but the first trailer of this science-meets-spirituality drama has been unveiled. Tim Kring (creator of Crossing Jordan, Heroes) returns to familiar territory with the premise that everything in the universe is interconnected. Sutherland plays a widower whose mute 11-year-old son, Jacob (newcomer David Mazouz) possesses the ability to detect patterns that connect seemingly unrelated events.

Danny Glover and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (of NBC’s short-lived Undercovers) round out the main cast.

Once it premieres in the spring it will occupy the 9 P.M. slot which was the same slot used for 24.

Watch the trailer below.

Mainly because it doesn’t have any original programming on during the 10 p.m. ET timeslot. But it still sends out 6 new shows this season that it hopes will be loved by viewers and maybe pave way for them to start airing original programming in that 10 p.m. hour. Here is a look at their schedule:


FOX FALL 2011 SCHEDULE

*New programs in UPPER CASE; all times ET

MONDAY
8 p.m. – TERRA NOVA

SUNDAY
7 p.m. – Animation Dominations (Encores)
7:30 p.m. – The Cleveland Show
8 p.m. – The Simpsons
8:30 p.m. – NAPOLEON DYNAMITE
9 p.m. – Family Guy   
9:30 p.m. – Bob’s Burgers


Besides the 2 new animated shows, 2 new comedies, and 2 new dramas that are currently on the lineup, Glee will take an extended Spring hiatus just like it did this year. In its place, two other new comedies Family Album, starring Glee’s Mike O’Malley and Little in Common, starring Rob Corddry, will likely take its place. Of course, they have a handful of shows to fill other holes as necessary.

In addition, 24 star Kiefer Sutherland will also be returning to FOX with new series Touch, which centers on the relationship between a single father and his 11-year-old son with special needs. Their relationship and their lives take an extraordinary turn when the gifted son begins to make connections in his life and around the world. However, production on Touch doesn’t begin until June, so who knows when and where that show will air.

Don’t be expecting The Chicago Code, Lie to Me, Breaking In, Traffic Light, Human Target to be on FOX any time next season, though, because they have ALL been cancelled!

Anything on here that YOU will be watching?

SXSW ’11: Source Code – Review http://insidepulse.com/2011/03/12/sxsw-11-source-code-review/ http://insidepulse.com/2011/03/12/sxsw-11-source-code-review/#comments Sat, 12 Mar 2011 18:31:17 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=239623 Robocop for the digital age]]>
Robocop for the digital age

Source Code is, in many ways, this generation’s Robocop. That is not to say that the sophomore film from director Duncan Jones is in any way tonally similar to Paul Verhoeven’s satire-heavy ‘80s action staple Robocop. The films couldn’t be more dissimilar in the way they explore violence. What bridges the two films, though, is their fluid ponderings on the consequences of action and the levels of trauma that a soldier is asked to go through in their duty to their country.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Colter Stevens, an Air Force helicopter pilot who finds himself in the epicenter of a new government initiative that melds quantum physics with anti-terrorism efforts. Hooked up to a mysterious computer program named the Source Code, Coulter’s brainwaves are merged with those of a recently deceased victim of a train bombing in Chicago. Coulter’s mission is to relive the last seven minutes of the man’s life and attempt to figure out who is responsible for the bombing so the government can stop a planned second bombing before it wipes out half of Chicago.

Writer Ben Ripley’s script cleverly combines a classic “whodunit” mystery with high-stakes action, technobabble intrigue and rousing romantic drama between Stevens and Christina, a fellow commuter played by Michelle Monaghan. As Stevens attempts to discover the truth behind the technology that is forcing him to repeatedly die for his country, he makes it his personal mission to save Christina’s life. While the initial romantic catalyst seems a bit rushed at times, the resulting bond between Stevens and Christina is more than believable and gives the film a great deal of emotional resonance.

With Source Code, Jones is able to take the basic structure of a thinking man’s science fiction film — with all its related philosophical quandaries and forward-looking technological leaps — and merge it with the sprit and fire of a summer blockbuster action film. The film pulses with an energy — thanks in large part to Gyllenhaal’s performance. After a series of failed attempts to break into mainstream Hollywood popcorn cinema, Gyllenhaal has finally found a project that allows him to play to his strengths. As an emotionally wrecked, fiery tempered soldier just looking to get out of his new assignment and go home to his father, Gyllenhaal recaptures a lot of the initial spark he showed in films such as Donnie Darko and Brokeback Mountain.

As Carol Goodwin, the Air Force officer helping to administer the Source Code project and acting as Stevens’ liaison into the real world, Vera Farmiga does a great job acting as the emotional center to the film’s action scenes — her growing reluctance to keep sending Stevens back into the minutes before the train bombing hammering in just how scarring an experience it must be to repeatedly be at the epicenter of a terrorist attack.

Source Code is not a time travel movie. Instead, the film cleverly utilizes a lot of the pop-science research into quantum physics and parallel realities that have been getting a lot of mainstream attention — as best summarized in last decade’s documentary What the Bleep Do We Know?

The film’s exploration into the consequences of every action and the ability or inability to change destiny helps flesh out the movie — keeping it from being your average episode of 24 stuck in a loop.

Unfortunately, it’s this same science that keeps Source Code a bit unbalanced. Not quite sure if it wants to be a hard-edged science fiction film or a fluffy “love conquers all” emotional drama, the film wobbles a bit in its third act.

Duncan Jones may not have created a home-run winner like his initial offering Moon but Source Code is definitely proof that Duncan Jones isn’t a one-trick pony. The director has a lot of imagination and a great eye for the cinematic — something that was perhaps not as evident in his relatively quiet first movie.

Director: Duncan Jones
Notable Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright and Russell Peters
Writer(s): Ben Ripley

My Lists of the Best of Television From 2010 http://insidepulse.com/2011/01/06/my-lists-of-the-best-of-television-from-2010/ http://insidepulse.com/2011/01/06/my-lists-of-the-best-of-television-from-2010/#comments Fri, 07 Jan 2011 00:30:01 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=229787 By and large, numbered list are useful only for entertainment purposes. Without standard criteria, lists reflect authors’ personal feelings and tastes. And even if there were a checklist for television show attributes, this is still television where everything is widely varied. My mindset is that lists are immensely fun to read and write. It allows for reflection on the past which is sometimes necessary when episodes continue to be produced and watched. I didn’t feel like writing much at the end of the year, but I typed some random lists–no criteria, no quantification, just whatever came to mind (and trying to avoid overlaps).

Best shows

1) Breaking Bad
2) Mad Men
3) Community
4) The Good Wife
5) Rubicon
6) Supernatural
7) Terriers
8) Boardwalk Empire
9) Lost
10) Chuck

Best mindless pleasure shows

1) NCIS
2) Nikita
3) Psych
4) Bones (strictly when it’s not a Booth-Brennan episode)
5) Leverage

Most memorable scenes

1) Epic fight between Hank and the cousins on Breaking Bad
2) Every second of the Community paintball episode
3) Final Lost scene, a big WTF
4) Don completely blows up on Peggy in Mad Men
5) Jack Bauer’s final goodbye on 24

Most disappointing shows

1) Undercovers
2) No Ordinary Family
3) Big Love
4) Human Target
5) True Blood

Most surprising shows in terms of quality (both good and bad, mostly good)

1) Parks and Recreation
2) Sanctuary
3) The Mentalist
4) Big Love
5) Weeds
