The long-gestating 24 movie is on target for a 2012 release, according to producer Brian Grazer.

"Got off the phone [with] Keifer [sic] yesterday and we are very excited about producing the '24' movie for next year," Grazer tweeted.

Is the 24 movie back on?

Grazer and Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment produced the Fox series.

Last month, Kiefer Sutherland said on The View that the movie is due next year, calling it "the little engine that could." The big-screen adaptation of 24 was stalled in December when 20th Century Fox passed on a script, but the project remained in development.
