Lethal Weapon 5? We’re ALL too old for this …

By Steve Spears

Oh, Hollywood. You’ve been drunk-dialing again, haven’t you? How else could you explain the new that Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and Richard Donner are exploring the idea of creating Lethal Weapon 5. 

Deadline.com reports Donner would direct and and Channing Gibson would write the sequel. If it’s been a while since you considered this crazy idea, let us remote you that Lethal Weapon 4 was released WAY BACK in 1998. Yeah, they were still worrying about the Y2K bug when this was last in theaters. 

Of course, Lethal Weapon lives on today as a TV series (in its second season on Fox), so why exactly do we need another movie version? Because to paraphrase our on-screen heroes, we ain’t got no choice! And God hates us.
