Oh god, is nothing sacred? Aren’t we passed the whole reboot/relaunch fad?
The latest reboot victim it seems is Lethal Weapon. Yes, you read that right, Lethal Weapon. Well sort of.
The current rumour has a fifth Lethal weapon – called Lionhunters – coming with Chris Hemsworth as Martin Riggs’ son – Riggs was of course played by Mel Gibson in the previous four movies – no word about Gibson’s appearance at this stage or Danny Glover’s as Murtaugh.
According to JoBlo: “the recent version of the script centers on the desires of an older cop’s son and his wishes to join the police force.”
But here is where it gets interesting, apparently Joel Silver will produce again and Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) is looking to direct from a story by Gangster squad’s Will Beall. However, the hopeful doesn’t stop there as it’s also rumoured that original Lethal weapon creator Shane Black (also the man behind Iron Man 3) is on board.
Nothing else is known at this point… but needless to say, we’ll keep you posted.
