Allison Taylor was a United States Senator, and the first female President of the United States. Taylor had to face tough decisions throughout Day 7 which, whilst resulting in the death of innocent American lives, proved herself as a President unwilling to cave to terrorist demands. In Day 8, Taylor moved towards a peace treaty with the Islamic Republic of Kamistan in the hopes of improving relations with the Middle East. However, the treaty became hard to hold together and when the Russians threatened to pull out, she was forced to call upon the help of former President Charles Logan, who coerced the Russians into the treaty. In the final moments before the treaty was due to go through, Taylor buckled and decided to tell the world of her cover-up and of Yuri Suvarov's part in Hassan's assassination. In doing so she realized that she would have to sacrifice her Presidency, and fearing for Jack Bauer's life, she advised him to flee the country.
Filming of 24 the movie has been delayed, apparently due to budget concerns. The film is now set for release sometime in 2013 and may be the first in a possible trilogy. The largest point of contention for the production is the budget, which Fox wants capped at around $30 million, while producer Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland believe the film will require a budget slightly above $40 million. Reports also state that Sutherland's salary was a major point of negotiation.

An Indian version of 24 is set to be produced, with Anil Kapoor (who played PresidentOmar Hassan in Season 8) playing the role of Jack Bauer. Kapoor closed a rights deal with 20th Century Fox TV Distribution and will produce the new 24 through his Anil Kapoor Films Company. Pre-production is set to begin mid-2012 in India. “It will be a great honor for me to play Jack Bauer,” Kapoor said. “Kiefer has created an iconic character which has inspired me to bring the franchise to India. This will be my first foray to Indian television and I look forward to duplicating the standard of excellence Fox has so successfully created.”
