Kiefer Sutherland plays the counterterrorist agent Jack Bauer in all nine seasons of "24."

Following the finale of "24: Live Another Day," the miniseries that stood in as the show's belated ninth season, producers have returned to the idea of bringing Jack Bauer's adventures to the big screen, TV Line reveals.

According to the website, "24" producer Brian Grazer has developed a pitch that he plans to present to 20th Century Fox. The studio, however, is said to be more interested in producing additional miniseries such as the one aired this summer.

The idea of a movie on the counterterrorist agent has been in discussion since the show ended its eighth season in May 2010. At the time, the project was shelved due to funding issues and problems with Kiefer Sutherland's schedule.

The latest installment in the adventures of Jack Bauer, the miniseries "24: Live Another Day" aired its finale on July 14 in the US. While the ratings were not exceptional, the new episodes were well received by critics and fans on the whole.
