Lethal Weapon 5: Mel Gibson shares very exciting update on long-awaited sequel 24 years on

Whatever the case, Gibson has given a new update on Lethal Weapon 5 that will give hope to fans.

Speaking with Screen Rant, the 66-year-old said: “It’s [coming along] great, we’ve got a really good screenplay that I developed. Well, Donner developed it, Richard Donner, of course, developed it with Richard Wenk, and they had a really good template. I had the honor of sitting down, after Richard passed away, with the writer and doing a couple more drafts and trying to do it in the spirit of what we thought Donner might [want], because I knew the guy so well. We tried to get that flavor, and we were pretty happy with what we came up with.”
