Universal Pictures is ready to run with Robert De Niro again.

The studio and legendary performer are developing a sequel to Midnight Run, the 1988 action comedy that starred De Niro as a bounty hunter who must bring back an embezzler, played by Charles Grodin, across the country.

Timothy Dowling, the writer behind Universal’s comedy Role Models, is being brought on board to pen the script that would bring back De Niro’s character, Jack Walsh, and pair him with a younger comedic foil.

An actor who is no stranger to franchises/sequels, De Niro reportedly first started considering taking part in the project while working on another sequel, Little Fockers, this past summer.
