Released in 1988, action comedy Midnight Run starred Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin as a mis matched bounty hunter and his bounty on the run from the mob and the F.B.I. It's one of my favorite De Niro films, and comedy's in general, so I'm of two minds when it was announced that Brett Ratner (Tower Heist and the Rush Hour series) is negotiations to direct a sequel, with De Niro reprising his role of bounty hunter Jack Walsh. There is no word of Grodin returning. He retired from acting in 2000 to spend time with his family, he would consider reprising his role from the film if the opportunity ever arose. David Elliot and Paul Lovett, who wrote Four Brothers and G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra, are working on the script.
