Lethal Weapon's Loading Up For A Reboot

Sorry, Mel Gibson. This is another franchise you will have no part of.

Sources are reporting that a writer has just been hired by Warner Bros. to take on the resurection of Lethal Weapon. The "buddy cop series" already has a director in place (Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer) and this writer's been brought in because of his experience as a former LA police officer.

It was the studio's original plan to forge ahead with a Lethal Weapon 5, reuniting the original cast for audiences to endure enjoy. But schedules conflicted and the WB decided they really didn't want anything to do with Mel again. So now, they're starting from scratch.

Necessary? Probably not, but get the right cast in there and people will see it. It's frustrating, but Hollywood knows the audiences will come to remakes in spite of themselves.

Thoughts?

    This movie is going to suck, BIG TIME. Mel and Danny made these movies a hit and no one can replace them, sorry….

    Re: Junk_in_my_Trunk – I agree.

    Lethal Weapon 5 … starring Sarah Palin's big mouth

    I know Mel has done awful things, said awful things and is having a ton of issues right now, but this franchise will not be the same if hes not cast… they had an excellent on screen chemistry that will be hard to match…. Bad idea me thinks.

    I agree as well,as much as mel turned out to be a scumbag he is part of alegendary movie franchise and no remake will change of outdo it .

    If Mel and Danny are not in it then why bother calling it Leathal Weapon.



  7. 7

    Without the original cast, this is no longer a "Lethal Weapon" movie, enough said. Just another empty hollywood tweenage project that they slap a recognizable name on to try to dupe people into seeing it. No thanks,

    too late. mac, charlie, dennis, and frank beat them to it.



  9. 9

    It's a waste of time and money if they don't have Mel and Danny in the 5th movie!
