Robert De Niro is reportedly in talks to make a sequel to action-comedy “Midnight Run.”
Directed by Martin Brest and written by George Gallo, “Midnight Run” (1988) told of a Bounty hunter, Jack Walsh (De Niro) who is sent to find and return bail jumper and former Mafia accountant, Jonathan “The Duke” Mardukas (Charles Grodin). The FBI have had no success it locating The Duke, so when Jack finds him in next to no time, they are a little embarrassed. In order to collect his $100,000 fee, Jack must take The Duke from New York to Los Angeles. Easier said than done.
No word on when the remake will get going, but Nikki Finke has confirmed that De Niro is attached to star.
