Anil Kapoor: 'I am going to shoot 24 remake in my own film studio'

Anil Kapoor is planning to shoot a remake of 24 in his own studio space.

The actor will take on the lead role, originally played by Kiefer Sutherland in the US version of the drama series. He previously portrayed President Omar Hassan in the eighth season of the show.

He told Mumbai Mirror: "Yes, I am starting my shoot of 24 in my own studio. That will be the Anti-Terrorism Headquarters.

"All decisions regarding the art-design and production set up will be taken by Abhinay Deo, the director of the show!"

A source added that Kapoor has had the studio space for a long time.

Kapoor will be working with 24 producer Michael Klick to update the series, which is expected to air in June 2013.

The star was dropped from a celebrity show in Dubai after he reportedly made too many demands on staff.

Delhi Belly director Abhay Deol confirmed in July that the production is going ahead, despite rumours that it had been scrapped by UTV.
