    While pundits wondered if J.J. Abrams could really keep the monster and mystery at the core of "Super 8" under lock and key until it hit theaters, and still draw a mainstream audience to a film with no name stars that was largely sold on the Steven Spielberg association, the proof was in the pudding...

    20th Century Fox Turns Down Billy Ray's Script For The Movie Of '24'

    'My Name Is Jack Bauer, And I Am In Development Hell'Bad news for those hoping for the further adventures of Kiefer Sutherland's rogue CTU agent Jack Bauer: apparently Fox has rejected a script from high-profile scribe Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "Salt") for a feature film continuing the adventures of the lead character of "24," the hit series that ran for eight years and successfully tapped into that raw post-9/11 paranoia during the Bush years.
