Lethal Weapon 5

Gibson, Glover back for ‘Lethal Weapon 5’

To, most certainly, be filed under “rumour”: Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are reportedly in talks to star in Lethal Weapon 5.


Shane Black, the creator and original screenwriter of Lethal Weapon, “handed in a detailed treatment to [franchise producer] Joel Silver and that they are taking two old scripts and mashing them together to make Lethal Weapon 5.”


The new story sees homicide cop Riggs (Gibson), who is about to quit the LAPD, drag Murtaugh (Glover) out of retirement to solve one final case.


The two leads are said to be interested in reprising their roles, although no deals have been signed.
