Maybe Not “Too Old For This Sh!t” After All

August 7, 2008

Who is up for another round of Lethal Weapon? Apparently Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are. And, to be honest, I think I am too. Word is floating out on the internet via the industry web site, and numerous other movie related sites, that original Lethal Weapon screenwriter Shane Black (remember way back in the day when he got paid $1.75 million for The Last Boy Scout?) has either handed in a spec script or an outline for Lethal Weapon 5.

There was never anything real groundbreaking about the Lethal Weapon movies, but they pretty much redefined the “buddy-cop” movie in the ’80s and ’90s. In fact, one of my current projects that I’m working on I refer to as “Lethal Weapon in space” — it’s a sci-fi buddy cop movie.

Notice how I had to post pictures of a bearded Gibson and Glover since I posted a picture of myself sans goatee last post?
