It wasn’t till after I attended the press conference for Clint Eastwood’s new biopic “J. Edgar” that the fun began for me. I was slightly lost, roaming the corridors of the vast Beverly Wilshire Hotel, looking for the correct elevator, when I bumped into uber-producer Brian Grazer to the TV series “24.” I pointed a tape recorder at him and asked how the feature film of “24” was coming along.
“We’re working on it,” he said. “We’re making the movie. We have a script, and the casting is going along great. We’re about to start casting the main antagonist, the person who plays against Jack Bauer. We have a really great role to play against Kiefer.”
I asked him when he thinks we’re going to see the film.
“I hope to have it out in the first quarter of 2012,” he said.*
