We're not too old for this shit!
A fifth outing for officers Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh (Gibson and Glover) has been rumoured for some time, but we've now had a big hint at confirmation from actor Columbus Short.
Short, who has previously starred in Stomp The Yard and Quarantine, confirmed to IGN that he's in line to star in Lethal Weapon 5 and that Warner Bros. has the movie on the fast track.
Shane Black is thought to have been working on a screenplay, and Joel Silver will be producing. Director Richard Donner's involvement, however, remains unknown.
The movie is thought to revolve around one last mission for the "not too old" duo - only, with a twist. This time around, Murtaugh is thought to throw caution to the wind and pull Riggs out of retirement for one last action-packed adventure. Short, meanwhile, is believed to be playing Nick Murtaugh - Roger's son from the first four movies.
But do we need another Lethal Weapon? Absolutely, and why not? Despite having adapted to the twenty-first century in Lethal Weapon 4 - an outing that grossed $128 million in the US alone - the series retains an 80's action feel that's second to none.
