Q: When the final season of 24 ended, there was talk of a feature film. Is that ever going to happen? — Dwight Esau, Huntley, Ill.
A: It’s still in the works, according to “Jack Bauer” himself, Kiefer Sutherland. Much will depend on his schedule; he’s been starring in a Broadway revival of That Championship Season, and he could be starting another Fox series this fall ( Touch, produced by Heroes mentor Tim Kring) if the pilot is picked up. For the moment, the parties involved are looking toward a possible January start for production on the movie, and those parties may include veteran director Tony Scott ( Top Gun, Crimson Tide).
Q: What happened to Men of a Certain Age, whose second season was halted after only six episodes? — John Black, Redmond, Wash.
A: That second season will be “de-halted” June 1, when TNT begins to wrap up that round of the Ray Romano-Scott Bakula-Andre Braugher comedy-drama series with the first of six new episodes.
Q: When will new episodes of In Plain Sight start? — Linda Smith, Pueblo, Colo.
A: Mary McCormack will be back as a federal marshal working in the Witness Protection Program when the fourth season of the show starts May 1 on USA Network ... the same night that network launches the final season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Q: I read that Damages will no longer be on FX but is going to be on DirecTV. Is there any possibility that one of the cable networks will rerun the new Damages? —Linda Brickey, Fort Collins, Colo.
A: There’s always a possibility; there’s not just anything definite, at least not as of this writing. No deal had been made for a second run of the DirecTV episodes as was made with NBC for Friday Night Lights.
However, it’s likely that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the latest episodes (which are coming this summer) in a DVD set, as has been done with past seasons of the show ... especially since, without the FX participation, the stories will be brand-new to many people on DVD.
