This week, reports announced Warner Bros. was moving forward with a reboot of Lethal Weapon, hiring Will Beall (the upcoming Gangster Squad) to write the screenplay. Danny Glover, who partnered up with Mel Gibson for four installments of the franchise was asked by MTV what he thought of the reboot, and his response was, you guessed it, "I'm too old for this."
Glover also remarked that he felt satisfied with the previous Lethal Weapon movies.
I'd like to think that the four we did were still magical and people will still reference the four Lethal Weapon's. I like whatever we've done before in the past.
Glover attributed the movies' success to director Richard Donner, saying "there's no way this could have been done, the four Lethal Weapon movies, without Richard Donner."
Warner Bros. is planning to add a new cast and director for the reboot.
