The 66-year-old actor earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of mentally disturbed war veteran in the movie and admits that he would love to reprise the role for a
belated sequel so long as the original director Martin Scorsese was on board, MTV.com reported.
"I have talked to writer Paul Schrader and Marty. We`ve spoken about what would happen to Travis these years later," De Niro said.
"We had a thing and we tried to figure it out; Paul was trying to come up with something. And it just didn`t seem to work," he added.
The American actor, however is optimistic about prospects of playing the role once more, despite previous attempts falling through.
"You never know - something could come up, I thought it would be interesting to find a way to bring Travis back all these years later - maybe with something ironic about where
he`d end up, as he did in the first one. All these years later, maybe we could. It`s still possible," De Niro said.
