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.
