I’d love to do Midnight Run sequel: De Niro

April 21st, 2012 by bash Comments

Robert De Niro has spoken at the Tribeca Film Festival about plans for a sequel to his 1988 comedy Midnight Run.

When questioned about the return of his character Jack Walsh, he said: “Somebody approached me, a young writer and he said how much he liked [the first film] and he said, ‘I’m writing a sequel if you want to [read it]’. And I said, ‘Sure! Fine.’ So it’s been going through these kind of changes.”

When pressed about what the sequel would be about, he added: “Well, he’s helping the son of Charles Grodin [and] he’s gotten himself in trouble. And so that’s where we are and the script is being re-worked again. But I hope to do it. It was a lot of fun to do.”

Thanks to Collider for the heads-up.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
