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.
