Shortly after his drunken say-first-pay-later diatribe in Malibu in 2006, Warner Bros offered Mel Gibson a â€˜â€™Lethal Weapon 5â€™â€™ â€“ if only because they knew heâ€™d knock it back at any other time (than when his career was on the skids) and has. Surely Gibbo would want to get back in with the public after his impertinent comments? Nope. Gibson didnâ€™t want a bar of it. Martin Riggs was dead to him.
Cut to two years later. Gibsonâ€™s leisurely climbing the stepladder again. Most people have accepted his act of contrition. And heâ€™s about to actually â€œstarâ€ in a movie again (â€œEdge of Darknessâ€, filming later this month, is about a cop who goes after the thugs that murdered his daughter). Surely heâ€™s not interested in a â€œLethal Weapon 5â€ now, right?
Well, Colour-me-Badd (remember them? I wanna sex you upâ€¦ all nightâ€¦) because both Mel.. and Danny Gloverâ€¦ want in!
TrackingB.com via ComingSoon.net say Shane Black, the writer of the original â€œLethal Weaponâ€, and producer Joel Silver, are hammering away at a new script. In it â€œhomicidal Riggs (Mel Gibson) is about to retire, but pulls Murtaugh (Danny Glover) out of retirement to solve one final case, before they both officially head off into the sunset.â€
Shane Black is the man. If anyone can give us a good Lethal Weapon sequel – – itâ€™d be him.
