Deadline writes: "In the latest Midnight Run sequel development, Charles Grodin is being courted to return. When Universal Pictures and Tribeca Productions hired Tim Dowling to write the sequel to the 1988 classic, the plan at the time was to only bring back the bounty hunter character played by Robert De Niro (who’s producing). He would chase the son of Grodin's character, but there were no plans to bring back Grodin, whose mob accountant character was last seen slipping away at the airport in Los Angeles. They also want to involve Marty Brest and original writer George Gallo. Sounds like it's probably as producers, but sources close to Brest said no approach has yet been made."
