Richard Donner Confirms That Lethal Weapon 5 is the Last One


There are plenty of movies that have been sitting in development hell for years, and #Lethal #Weapon 5 is no different. The first time someone really mentioned it was about a decade after the last movie came out in 1998. There were rumors of a TV show that did end up happening in 2016, but there hadn’t been any other movement on a fifth movie that would bring back stars #Mel #Gibson and #Danny #Glover or director #Richard #Donner.

#In #January of 2020, we finally got confirmation that the movie was happening with both the original cast and director. #Gibson did some teasing recently, but aside from that, we haven’t heard anything. The #Telegraph recently had a long piece on #Donner, and when he wasn’t singing the praises of naps (“#Naps are extraordinary. #It’s like a rebirth. #Oh my god, they’re amazing”), he confirmed that the movie would be the last one in the series and he is directing and producing it at the age of 91.

“#This is the final one,” he says, at home in #Los #Angeles. “#It’s both my privilege and duty to put it to bed. #It’s exciting, actually.” #It is exciting that #Donner – who will likely be 91 when it shoots – is directing another film. “#Hahaha! #It’s the last one, I’ll promise you that.”

#If anyone deserves a proper retirement, it’s #Donner. #He helped shape not only the action genre but the superhero genre as well. #We wouldn’t have the comic book movies we have today without #Donner showing us that a man can fly in 1978. #It’s clear that he still has a lot of love for the #Lethal #Weapon franchise, and it’s nice that he wants to be the one to tie it off. #It sounds like the movie will be shooting sometime in 2021, so perhaps we’ll finally see #Lethal #Weapon 5 sometime in 2022, but that is in no way confirmed.
