Lethal Weapon 5 Synopsis
This time, homicidal Riggs (Mel Gibson) is about to retire, but pulls Murtaugh (Danny Glover) out of retirement to solve one final case, before they both officially head off into the sunset.
Gibson and Glover are down to return, but no deals have been signed. Shane Black, who wrote the first Lethal Weapon movie, has written script for "Lethal Weapon 5."
The first film was released in 1987, the second in 1989, the third in 1992 and the fourth in 1998.
Lethal Weapon 5 would have had an older Riggs and Murtaugh trapped in a New York blizzard fighting a new enemy.
The project is said to be a hybrid of a sequel and a remake, following Riggs' son as he tries to follow in his father's footsteps as a cop.
The actor is rumored to be meeting with Joel Silver about reprising his role as Martin Riggs.
Screenwriter Shane Black confirms the popular series will not be back.
Richard Donner, director of the first four films, is out and he says Mel Gibson passed on the fifth film as well.
