Since Lethal Weapon 4 was turned around in double quick time (you can read more on that here) and proved a solid hit for Warner Bros in 1998, there have been constant rumours that stars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, along with director Richard Donner, would reunite for one more outing.
Lots has happened in that time, and Donner hasn’t directed a film since 2006’s 16 Blocks (he is 87 now, so he might prefer putting his feet up). Yet it seems that discussions are underway once again about getting the old gang back together.
Warner Bros is said to be exploring the possibility of Lethal Weapon 5, that would bring Gibson and Glover back for one more outing, and see Donner direct. Channing Gibson, who worked on the screenplay for the last chapter, is said to be working on a new script.
This one’s firmly at the ‘possibility’ stage, and truthfully, we’d believe it when we saw it. But, y’know, stranger things have happened…
