More news today about Fox's 24, which was officially canceled last week, including that upcoming feature film and whether NBC will be picking it up.

From USA Today:

♦Billy Ray (State of Play) is writing the movie script, which will be set in Prague and will take place in a single day, not in real time, allowing Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) to travel across Europe. That hasn't been OK'd officially.

♦20th Century Fox tried to pitch the show to NBC, but NBC wasn't interested.

♦The current eighth season has 10 more episode after tonight's and will provide a more "definitive" ending than others.

24 airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT; the two-hour season finale will air May 24 at 8 p.m.
