Mel Gibson And Danny Glover Will Return For ‘Lethal Weapon 5’

It’s been 22 years since we last saw Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) in action in Lethal Weapon 4. How time goes by! Since then we have had to see how a serial remake attempt did not do it justice as the years went by making a reunion between the two on the big screen increasingly difficult. Until now. Because the fifth installment is prepared with its original stars! This was revealed by producer Dan Lin to The Hollywood Reporter confirming that the new sequel is already in development in the halls of Warner Bros. and that Glover (73) and Gibson (64) have planned to appear on it. Of course, it will be the last installment. The final final of Lethal Weapon under the orders of the original director, Richard Donner. That is, only Joe Pesci and Rene Russo are missing and we sing bingo. “The story is very personal for him and it’s wonderful,” said the producer about the project. “The original cast returns, Mel and Danny are already prepared, it’s just a matter of having the script,” he added. This way we can confirm that the idea that the original creator, Shane Black, had in 2017 when he said he had a sketch of 62 pages that would have resulted in a “very good movie” would be discarded. In that idea, the two policemen faced a team of thieves from Afghanistan during a storm in New York with the help of a young character who was going to enter the story, but in addition to the return of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, the great The news is that they got Richard Donner to decide to take over the project. At 89, the legendary filmmaker responsible for The Prophecy, The Goonies and Superman – and directing the four deliveries of Lethal Weapon – has been away from the cinema for 14 years when he made 16 streets. He only became part of a project in 2009 when he served as executive producer in X-Men origins: Wolverine, bequeathing the responsibility of producing the rest of the mutant deliveries to his wife Lauren Shuler Donner.More details are unknown or when he could jump to the big screen but we don’t see the time anymore!
