The studio has also hired the writing team of David Elliot and Paul Lovett (Four Brothers) to rewrite the script. Timothy Dowling wrote the original draft. Robert De Niro will return as bounty hunter Jack Walsh from Midnight Run. The sequel will continue Jack Walsh's story line, but it still isn't known if his Midnight Run co-star Charles Grodin will return as Jonathan Mardukas. We reported way back in June 2010 that Charles Grodin was considering a return to acting so he could play 'The Duke' once more. Charles Grodin retired from acting in the 1990s.
Robert De Niro is also producing the Untitled Midnight Run Sequel with his Tribeca Films partner Jane Rosenthal and Brett Ratner's Rat Entertainment. No production schedule was given for the Untitled Midnight Run Sequel.
