Brett Ratner to direct Midnight Run sequel

There is a devil. And his fork hurts.

Brett Ratner is directing that long-awaited “Midnight Run” sequel, according to Deadline.

The flick, now on a rewrite with David Elliot & Paul Lovett, sees Robert De Niro reprise his role as bounty hunter Jack Walsh.

Still no word on whether Charles Grodin – who has essentially retired from acting – will reprise his role as ‘The Duke’, but I’m guessing the appointed director won’t do a lot to sway him.
