Mel Gibson says Lethal Weapon 5 ‘absolutely’ on its way

November 19th, 2020 by Marc Comments

So, 22 years after we last saw Riggs and Murtaugh (Mel Gibson and Danny Glover), it seems that the gang is getting back together again.

Anyone who follows us here at FTN will know we’ve been following this for a while (here) and now the ball seems to be well and truly rolling.

Speaking on Good Morning America, star Gibson said Lethal Weapon 5 is “absolutely on the way” and series director Richard Donner is working on it “right now”.

Word is that the film’s working title is Lethal Finale, according to Donner and, as we reported in January, producer Dan Lin said “Dick Donner’s coming back. The original cast is coming back. And it’s just amazing. The story itself is very personal to him. Mel and Danny are ready to go, so it’s about the script.”

There’s no word on when the movie might see light of day, but just knowing two of cinema’s greatest icons are coming back to our screens is good enough. For now.

What say you all? Are you excited for more Lethal Weapon? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
