Screen legend Robert De Niro has reunited with iconic director MARTIN
SCORSESE to work on a sequel to their classic movie Taxi Driver.
The OSCAR-winning actor, who starred as disturbed Vietnam veteran Travis
BICKLE in the 1976 film, has confirmed the movie veterans are mulling over
script ideas for a follow-up to the gritty original.
Apart from his comedy turn in Meet The Parents and its recent sequel MEET
THE FOCKERS, De Niro has starred in a series of flop films - and critics are
hoping Travis Bickle's resurrection will restore his reputation as one of the
dramatic actors of all time.
De Niro, 61, says, "I was talking with Martin Scorsese about doing what I
guess you'd call a sequel to Taxi Driver, where he is older."
