    Default Lethal Weapon 5

    Lethal Weapon 5 has been on again and off again. Last we heard Joel Silver thought a fifth film was still possible.

    Now Mel Gibson has given his verdict, and it doesn't sound like he's at all interested.

    Lethal Weapon 5 was at one point supposed to be fast tracked into production. But that all ground to a halt. Richard Donner then claimed that the real reason it wouldn't happen, was that Mel Gibson wouldn't be involved without him there. With Donner and Joel Silver having a disagreement that didn't look likely.

    Silver then claimed that he had Shane Black on board, and that they basically didn't need Donner. Not only that, but Gibson's involvement was perhaps more a case of timing than anything. Now we finally get to hear from Mel Gibson on the subject, he spoke to MTV Movies Blog. And he expressed his lack of surprise that the idea had come up:

    I couldn’t imagine going back there to try to revive that one. I think we got everything we could out of it. Of course these things always come around. Five though? Five?!? Please.

    So there we have it. Gibson is having none of it, seems he'd rather be doing his own thing.

    I would rather write something and try to tell a story somewhere. Not that [Shane’s] not telling a story, it’s just that things have a certain life.

    The last thing Hollywood needs to do is another sequel. LW 4 was a nice conclusion to the series, in fact it was better than the 3rd one, but not on par with the first two. Good job Mel, way to go just say no.

    If the big star is not interested, then let it go. The series doesn't need the 5th.

    I never got into these...any of them. I had a lot of friends that were and still talk about the first two but I don't think I've even seen those all the way through in one sitting. Maybe I need to make it a blockbuster night sometime and see if I've been missing something good.

    Agreed. The only redeemable thing about 4 was the American intro to Jet Li.

    Let us not forget that "Fire in the Hole" from VHIII was featured in LW4. Pehaps LW5 will be the perfect launching pad for new VH music.

    Yeah, i liked the 4th one..guess i'm in the minority. The end cracks me up when Gibson kills Li's brother, and Glover says, Well, now you did, now you really pissed him off. And they're all contemplating whether to go fight him or not.
