Kiefer Sutherland‘s subsequent case will doubtless take him greater than 24 hours to crack. The small-screen motion hero has been tapped to star in Quibi’s reboot of The Fugitive, TVLine has confirmed.
The reboot’s official logline is as follows: “When a bomb rips by the Los Angeles subway prepare he’s using on, blue-collar Mike Ferro simply desires to ensure his spouse, Allison, and 10-year-old daughter, Pearl, are protected. However the defective proof on the bottom and “tweet-now, confirm-later” journalism paint a nightmarish image: it appears to all of the world that Mike was chargeable for the heinous act. Wrongfully — and really publicly — accused, Mike should show his innocence by uncovering the true perpetrator, earlier than the legendary cop heading the investigation can apprehend him.”
Sutherland — who most not too long ago portrayed the titular Designated Survivor for 3 seasons on ABC and Netflix — will play the “legendary” Detective Clay Bryce, whereas the function of Mike Ferro might be performed by Boyd Holbrook (Narcos). Each of these characters had been created for this Quibi reboot; they don’t have any connection to both the unique 1960s TV sequence or the 1993 Harrison Ford-led movie.
This short-form reboot of Fugitive hails from Scorpion creator Nick Santora, whereas Stephen Hopkins (24) will direct and executive-produce.
