Universal Pictures Pushing For 'Midnight Run 2' With Brett Ratner Directing

Universal Pictures is looking to have writers David Elliot and Paul Lovett to rewrite the script for Midnight Run 2 with Brett Ratner in talks to direct the sequel and has Robert De Niro attached to reprise his role as bounty hunter Jack Walsh.
The script was originally done by Tim Dowling last year but Elliot & Lovett will redo the script and will continue the storyline of Walsh, the ex-Chicago cop who, when last seen, set free the turncoat mob accountant The Duke at LAX and walked away with a wad of cash he’d use to open a coffee shop. It's mainly the question if Charles Grodin would be part of the film package. Grodin has not spent much time acting these days but has said he’s open to participating in this movie if it comes up. We'll have to wait and see how this all plays out.
