Lethal Weapon fans who aren’t too keen on Fox’s television series should be happy to hear that a sequel to the original four films is in the discussion stages. Actors Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are both reportedly interested in reprising their roles.
Deadline dropped an exclusive scoop regarding the iconic buddy-cop franchise – that Lethal Weapon could have life beyond TV in the form of another sequel. Gibson and Glover are both apparently in-tune with director Richard Donner (who directed Superman: The Movie in addition to all four previous Lethal Weapon films), who has interest in directing the fifth film in the series. Should everything play out according to this plan, Lethal Weapon 4 writer Channing Gibson will also work on the script.
It’s been nearly twenty years since the last Lethal Weapon movie, and as it stands, buddy-cop movies are fewer and further between than one would expect from Hollywood. With Hollywood being in love with the idea of rebooting old IP, it could be fun to see a franchise like this get revived – or, at the very least, it would be better than doing a complete reboot. One thing’s certain, though – these two actors aren’t getting too old for this **** just yet.
7 Great Deathstroke Stories That Could Inspire The Movie
Now that fans know Deathstroke will be getting his own movie directed by The Raid’s Gareth Evans, it’s time for everyone to brush up on their Slade Wilson knowledge. Deathstroke is DC’s deadliest assassin and one of the smartest tacticians in the world, as well as the oldest foe of the Teen Titans. He’s even taken on the whole Bat-family single-handedly and escaped, proving just how tough of a fighter he is.
The movie will likely depict him as an anti-hero of sorts, a relatively new status for the character. Throughout most of his history Deathstroke has always been more of a self-interested fighter than a righteous man, but recently he’s developed a conscious and a desire to help people in DC Rebirth. He was even one of the main villains in the Batman: Arkham Origins game, proving that audiences are ready for more Slade Wilson.
