It was reported weeks back that a fifth Lethal Weapon film was indeed moving forward despite the death of franchise director Richard Donner. Series star Mel Gibson made the announcement and now we have further confirmation from the man that it is indeed on and that’ll he’ll also be helming the project along with returning as Martin Riggs.
With Danny Glover’s statement, it would appear that both Riggs and Murtaugh aren’t too old for this shit and they have enough left in the tank for one more adventure.
It is being reported that Gibson will play an older Riggs (of course) and that there will be a “comedic bent” to it. Not so sure what that means as there was humor in all the films.
Personally, I thought the series ended perfectly with number 4 years ago so here’s hoping if this does happen, that it works out well. Stay tuned and keep it locked and loaded right here for more 411 as we are your destination for everything action in 2022 and beyond!
