‘Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins leads 24 revival

After lengthy negotiations, Straight Outta Compton‘s Corey Hawkins has signed on as the male lead in FOX’s upcoming 24: Legacy reboot.

Deadline reports that Hawkins will play Eric Carter, a former Army Ranger.  24: Legacy follows Carter’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him – which compels him to ask CTU for help.

Unlike the original Keifer Sutherland-centric show, this incarnation will also include a female lead in the way of a former head of CTU.  There are no plans for any former cast members having an ongoing presence in the new series.
