Sorry Cody, the GL2 does not natively record in 24fps.
If you want your footage to look more like film, other than lighting, I would say having a shallow depth of field helps produce that look.
You can do this in two ways: Aperture size, and focal length.
Most likely you learned about this in film school, a longer focal length and lower f-stop create a shallow depth of field.
If you want an even narrower depth of field, you might want to look into 35mm adapters. Here’s a youtube video of a somewhat typical consumer camera (the sony HC1) with a letus 35mm SLR lens adapter.
Letus sells 35mm lens adapters, but there are some site that say how to build them yourself for around $300.
