Today Deadline is out here trying to tell us that Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and Richard Donner are all in talks for a potential Lethal Weapon 5. We shit you not.
These early discussions have Gibson, who is a 61-year-old man, and Glover, ten years his senior, returning via a script by Channing Gibson (no relation; writer of Lethal Weapon 4). Donner, who will turn 88 years of age next April, would be directing for the first time since 2006's 16 Blocks.
I don't know, guys. I mean, I guess? At some point in the past ten or fifteen years, this prospect tipped from unlikely/bad idea to one that fills us with "opening day ticket sold" levels of morbid curiosity. So sure, go for it, fellas. Try not to sprain anything.
