‘Lethal Weapoon 5’ Awaits Gibson Green Light
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that a script for Lethal Weapon 5 is completed and all the franchise awaits is Mel Gibson’s blessing. Apparently, producer Joel Silver is trying to get a commitment from Gibson to appear once more opposite Danny Glover as the duo of Murtaugh and Riggs. The script, from Shane Black, would introduce two new and younger cops from New York. Black would also take over the director’s chair from Richard Donner.
Currently, Gibson is shooting Edge of Darkness in Boston while Glover will be seen next month in the feature Blindness. Black was just signed by Universal earlier this week to write and director Cold Warrior.
