Robert De Niro is now in development on a follow-up to his 1988 comedy Midnight Run.

During a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival, De Niro said that he is in developing the project which would see his character helping out the son of Charles Grodin’s character from the first film.

De Niro also said that he would consider reprising his older characters from films like Raging Bull and others, if the script was good enough and had some humor in it.

Judd Apatow joined him onstage to talk about comedy and the recent roles that deniro has taken on. De Niro joked about his darker roles saying that’s for me and my psychoanalyst.” He would like to more humorous movies now.

Talking about the humor in his acting parts he said “Taxi Driver — there are funny things in it,” De Niro said. “Mean Streets, King of Comedy, they weren’t obvious comedies.”

Apatow chimed in at that point to note that “Goodfellas is hilarious.”

“What people love about Mr. De Niro’s work is there’s always sharp comedy in it,” Apatow said. “Even Cape Fear has some humor in it.”

Here’s the trailer for the original:
