Staff Writer Are the rumors of a sequel to Taxi Driver finally coming true? Robert De Niro, who starred as the film’s loner main character, Travis Bickle, says that it may be on the horizon! De Nero has said that he would “like to see where Travis Bickle is today.” The classic 1976 film was directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Paul Schrader. According to fans and news sources alike, there have been rumors about a possible sequel for many years. De Niro told the Guardian that Taxi Driver is one of his films that he would love to revisit. "Yeah, well, I had that idea. I said, why don't we write something? And I talked to Marty and Paul did take a shot at something, whether it was an outline or a script, I forget. But somehow we didn't feel it was right and it didn't take off. But I'd like to see where Travis is today. There was something about the guy – all that rage and alienation, that's what the city can do to you. I mean Marty and I are from New York, and even we can feel alienated." Taxi Driver ends with a fantasy sequence, and some believe that Travis Bickle dies. With the fantasy sequence leaving so much to the imagination, it’s almost the kind of ending one would expect from The DaVinci Code or The Giver. Di Nero neither confirms nor denies Travis’ death, saying, "You mean the end of the movie? Well, that's an interesting theory. I know that was not the intention, but it's as valid as anything." Well, he didn’t say no! In his latest The Family, De Niro will play a mobster who has to join the witness protection program after his mafia family betrays him. The film has Martin Scorsese as executive producer and also stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Glee star Dianna Agron. Check out the trailer for The Family: [youtube=]
