Well, here we are again. It’s only February yet this is sure to be the worst news all year. It may even be the worst news of all time. Brace yourself, it’s bad. McG is set to direct the pilot for a Lethal Weapon TV series.
Back in October, we learned that FOX was rebooting Lethal Weapon as a TV series, and the response was pretty much a unanimous “No FOX! Bad FOX!” with a hint of “But why?” Today, FOX has ordered the reboot series to pilot with Damon Wayans Sr. set to star and McG on board to direct.
With Damon Wayans Sr. set to star too. How could it possibly be worse?
McG has now accrued new depths of hatred, after his terrible Terminator sequel, he now seeks to plunder more hallowed ground and ruin Lethal Weapon. And Damon Wayans, supposedly as Murtaugh?! Damon Wayans is no Danny Glover, he’s not even fit to parody Murtaugh.
And who are they going to cast as Riggs? Aw shit…
