March 22nd, 2012 by bash Comments

Nearly 25 years after action-comedy Midnight Run was released a sequel could be on the way.

Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures are negotiating with Brett Ratner about directing a second movie with Robert De Niro reprising his role as bounty hunter Jack Walsh. David Elliot and Paul Lovett are supposedly set to re-write an original script by Tim Dowling.

In the first film, directed by Martin Brest, De Niro’s character must deliver Jonathan ‘The Duke’ Mardukas (Charles Grodin) from New York to L.A. for a court appearance before the Mob get him, after embezzling $15 million.

De Niro and Jane Rosenthal’s Tribeca is producing with Ratner’s Rat Entertainment.

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.
