Looks Like Lethal Weapon 5 Is Getting Closer

Mel Gibson has been doing the rounds again, promoting Daddy’s Home 2 (it honestly looks funny).  With recent rumors swirling, the interviewer in the video below (thanks, Mel Gibson Site) did the expected and asked about Lethal Weapon 5.

Gibson says, again, ‘maybe’.  But this time he adds that he has just met with Danny Glover and Richard Donner.  I think a ‘maybe’ from Gibson on this could be a ‘probably’ for some other actor.  Gibson downplays these types of things.

But if Donner is on board, then the duo are likely to be on board too. Anyone else after that is just a bonus.  These men are old, but there are others who are just as old and older doing this type of thing.  Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood.

To recap, the last known tentative ‘premise’ for a Lethal Weapon 5, according to Donner, was Riggs and Murtaugh retiring and and hitting the road in an RV.  When Riggs leaves the safety brake off, it rolls downhill into something in a small town/village, inadvertently triggering an explosive action movie again some baddies.

Of course, we can’t forget Joe Pesci and Co.

      Love the delusional fan boys who actually think this will happen. Like Glover is going to get off his ass and make this lol

    Mel could easily pull off Riggs again and if he’s on board it’s hard to worry about the script. Biggest concern would be the tone as I’d still want that late 80s/early 90s L.A. vibe that the first 3 movies had and I’m not sure how that would work today.

    But more Mel is more Mel so why the fuck not?

    • The Night Rider

      I wonder who’d be cast as the villain in this day and age. Jet Li and Gary Busey are hard to top.

      • Jake

        I just hope they don’t try to add younger characters to shoulder the fight scenes.

    I have read & seen a couple of reports & reviews about “Daddy’s Home 2” and a few “reporters” or “writers” have taken the opportunity to just shit on Gibson.

  • Avenging force

    It’s either gonna be a great addition to the classic collection or a absolut piece of shit ,I hope for the best but with no Leo ,the family all old ,glover looking like red from shawshank ,no one around to be a great villain and Riggs stopped being a lethal weapon after 2 I just don’t know .
