Remakes and reboots, natch.
Kiefer Sutherland’s 24, for instance. It is getting rebooted sans the Emmy winner, thankyouverymuch.
And in a twist of fate, a black actor is taking over for a white one.
Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins is going to headline 24: Legacy, a new entry in the franchise that will revolve, in part, around a military hero who turns to CTU upon his return home to the United States, for help in saving his life and stopping what could be a massive terrorist attack on America. The new show also will have a strong female lead, and the character will have a long history at the agency, for she used to run CTU.
I wonder if we have met her before....
