24 movie update, and will NBC pick it up?

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.
