Robert De Niro is reportedly in talks to make a sequel to Midnight Run.
The Oscar-winning actor starred as Jack Walsh in the classic action thriller in 1988 and now Deadline Hollywood reports he is "mid-development on another Midnight Run".
De Niro has several projects in the pipeline, including Stone with Edward Norton and Machete with Robert Rodriguez, as well as Another Night In Suck City, directed by Paul Weitz and co-starring Casey Affleck.
The movie is based on a memoir by Nick Flynn, called Another Bulls**t Night In Suck City, at the centre of which is a fractured father/son relationship.
De Niro, 66, also has "a showy role" playing Governor George Wallace in Precious director Lee Daniels' next movie Selma, which is about desegregation.
Wallace was vehemently in favour of keeping his state racially segregated, provoking Martin Luther King's famous marches between Selma and Montgomery, Alabama in the early 1960s. He offered his apologies to black civil rights leaders when he became a born-again Christian in the late 1970s.
