After more than a decade, Sergeants Riggs and Murtaugh will once again be hitting the streets of L.A., but don't expect to see Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the roles they made famous in four Lethal Weapon movies.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. (WB) has hired former L.A. homicide detective Will Beall to pen a new Lethal Weapon movie that will reboot the franchise with a new cast.
Beall, who spent years patrolling the mean streets of L.A. as a beat cop and anti-gang investigator with the 77th Division of the LAPD, is the author of the explosive crime novel L.A. Rex and wrote the screenplay for Gangster Squad, which is being adapted into a movie directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland). what happened to Lethal Weapon 5? >> Posted 01.21.11 by BrentJS
