Danny Glover & Mel Gibson Will Return For 5th & Final “Lethal Weapon” Film
After over two decades of hiatus, reports confirm that the fifth and final installment of the Lethal Weapon film franchise is set to be made. To fans’ delight, the cop action flick will be completed with its original megastars: actors Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. In the most recent episode of “The Hollywood Reporter’s Producers Roundtable,” the movies’ producer, Dan Lin, confirmed the news:
“Mel and Danny are ready to go, so it’s about the script.”
The original Lethal Weapon film was released in 1987, spawning three more sequels after that. Detective Martin Riggs’ and Detective Roger Murtaugh’s most recent adventure was released in 1998.
The franchise was, later, revived as a television series starring Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans from 2016 to 2019.
Dan Lin explained the fifth film’s significance:
“We’re trying to make the last Lethal Weapon movie. And Dick Donner’s coming back. The original cast is coming back. And it’s just amazing. The story is very personal to him.”
