MIDNIGHT RUN 2
Why has Robert de Niro made follow-ups to
Meet the Parents and Analyze This but not to Midnight Run? In far and away his funniest film, he starred as scruffy bounty hunter Jack Walsh on a road trip with a troublesome white-collar crook (Charles Grodin). There’s endless scope for the character to return and to deal with a pesky new criminal, perhaps played by a comparatively young comedian (Dave Chappelle? Dylan Moran? Eddie Izzard?). Yes, there was a brief TV spin-off starring Christopher McDonald as Walsh, but that doesn’t really count.
