Anil KapoorHollywood actor Kiefer Sutherland's dream of bringing his hit American TV series 24 to cinemas is set to come true, as Hollywood bosses have commissioned a script to turn it into a movie.

The actor has always talked of transforming the real time series into a film franchise, with plans to transfer the action drama from America to Europe, reports contactmusic.com.

TV bosses are now moving forward with the plans, hiring the writer behind Russell Crowe's 2009 thriller State of Play to pen the story for a big budget 24 film.

Sutherland previously starred in 24: Redemption, a 2008 TV film shown as a prelude to the show's seventh season.

The 24 movie will follow in the footsteps of other TV shows, including The Simpsons and The X-Files, which have both made successful transitions to the big screen.
