"Lethal Weapon - Zwei stahlharte Profis" (1987) unter der Regie von Richard Donner (u.a. "Goonies", "Timeline")...
Sie sind beide Cops in L.A., sie haben beide in Vietnam für eine Spezialeinheit gekämpft... Und sie hassen es beide, mit einem Partner arbeiten zu müssen. Aber sie sind Partner: Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson, u.a. "Mad Max"), der Mann mit dem Todeswunsch, für wen auch immer. Und Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover, u.a. "Predator 2"), der besonnene Polizist. Gemeinsam enttarnen sie einen gigantischen Heroinschmuggel, hinter dem sich eine Gruppe ehemaliger CIA-Söldner verbirgt. Eine Killerbande gegen zwei Profis...

"Lethal Weapon 2 - Brennpunkt L.A." (1989)...
Sie arbeiten seit 3 Jahren zusammen. Sie sind Freunde geworden. Doch seit dieser Zeit hat Polizeileutnant Murtaugh ein Problem: Sein Partner heißt Martin Riggs, und der kennt nur ein Prinzip: Verbrecher muß man fassen, egal wie!

"Lethal Weapon 3 - Die Profis sind zurück" (1992)...
Diesmal räumen Riggs und Murtaugh in ihren eigenen Reihen auf: Gewohnt schlagkräftig, jagen sie Polizisten, die illegal mit Waffen dealen...

"Lethal Weapon 4 - Zwei Profis räumen auf" (1998)...
Hinter einem Menschenhändlerring stoßen Riggs und Murtaugh auf ein mörderisches Komplott der chinesischen Triaden-Mafia und geraten dabei selber auf die Abschußliste. Doch zusammen sind sie nicht zu schlagen - auch wenn sie bei ihrem haarsträubenden Shoot-Outs und Verfolgungen eine Schneise der Verwüstung quer durch ganz Los Angeles ziehen...

"Lethal Weapon 5" wurde nach jahrelangem Hin und Her für Tod erklärt... Und nun denkt man bei WB laut über ein Reboot mit neuen Darstellern nach...

Lethal Weapon

[20.01.2011] Wie
Heat Vision meldet, denkt man bei Warner Bros. u.a. über ein "Lethal Weapon" Reboot nach...
[...] What was considered an “event” movie in the late 1980s seems almost quaint in 2011 (no matter how awesome the first two movies are). The concept is essentially a police procedural featuring a mismatched pair of detectives. The chemistry between Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, coupled with Richard Donner’s direction and a sharp script from a young Shane Black, turned this into a franchise. But one wrong move and it could have been Tango and Cash or Cop-Out. The studio would need to make a risky bet on casting -- Jeremy Renner in the Gibson role? -- and recruit a hot action director to make this feel fresh. And even though the temptation might be to go big-budget (Warners likes to go big), perhaps a smaller, grittier Weapon might re-establish its credibility. [...]

[...] "Lethal Weapon 5" is dead.
I spoke to screenwriter Shane Black (who’d written a draft of the film; one he was expected to direct himself), this afternoon, who said he didn’t believe the film will ever happen now.
Black, who also penned the original film, refused to say why he didn't believe it'll ever happen but just that he can't see it coming to fruition.
According to reports, the final nail in the coffin was smacked in by the hammer of Mel Gibson, who decided, despite being open to a meeting about another sequel to his 1987 hit, that he didn’t really want to wear the mullet again. (Other sources say Gibson refused to do it because Richard Donner, director of the previous "Lethal" films, had not been asked back). Producer Joel Silver is reportedly still trying to coax him into it - but Gibson won't answer the call.
A contact at Warner Bros agreed with Black, saying "That one is as good as dead. It won’t happen. Which is a pity" he said, adding that Black’s screenplay - which reportedly involved Riggs and Martaugh teaming with the latter detective’s grown-up son, now also a copper, to catch a scumbag, was "fabulous. A much better send off than [Number 4]".
Richard Donner, director of the first four "Lethal Weapon" movies, apparently has his own screenplay for a fifth movie ready-to-go, but unless he can convince Mel Gibson to attach himself to it, it’s unlikely that’ll get any further than a laser printer either. Donner and Gibson are expected to reunite for a new movie this year, so chances are the conversation will come up.
''It could [come up]" says our friend at Warner. "But I don't think it will happen that way either". [...]

[14.10.2008] Die LA Times sprach mit dem Regisseur Richard Donner, u.a. über "Lethal Weapon 5"...
Richard Donner, who directed and produced all four "Lethal Weapon" films but found himself excluded from the recent plans to make a fifth, now says that his old friend Mel Gibson has walked away from the franchise revival.
"Mel turned it down," Donner said. "I would like to think that Mel turned it down because I wasn't involved. Knowing Mel, I would like to think that. Would that be the kind of thing he does? It sure would be." [...]
Donner went on: "It's too bad, actually, because Channing Gibson, who wrote the fourth one, and Mike Riva, a designer on three of them, and myself and Derek [Hoffman, an associate at The Donner Company] had an incredibly strong story for the fifth movie. But we weren't given the opportunity and I think maybe I could have convinced Mel to do it. But Warners chose to go with Joel Silver." [...]
Either way, the issue is moot; without Gibson on board, the franchise isn't going anywhere. "Yes, the project is pretty much dead in the water unless someone had the sense to come to me." [...]

[07.10.2008] Bei IGN gibt es ein Video-Interview mit Columbus Short...
[...] actor Columbus Short, who co-stars in the forthcoming horror thriller Quarantine [..] confirmed the rumors that he is up for a role in Lethal Weapon 5.
The Stomp the Yard star also informed IGN that Lethal Weapon 5 is on the "fast track," film industry parlance meaning that Warner Bros. wants the sequel in production as soon as possible. [...]

[07.08.2008] CS! meldet...
Hollywood tracking board reports that Shane Black, who wrote the first Lethal Weapon movie, has written a spec script for Lethal Weapon 5 without telling anyone. The site adds that he contacted franchise producer Joel Silver and said that he wanted to continue the story.
This time, homicidal Riggs (Mel Gibson) is about to retire, but pulls Murtaugh (Danny Glover) out of retirement to solve one final case, before they both officially head off into the sunset. says that Gibson and Glover are down to return, but no deals have been signed. [...]

[...] Gibson is said to have recently knocked back an offer to reprise his role as that law-enforcing loose cannon, Martin Riggs, in a "Lethal Weapon 5".
"Oh no, I don't want to go there again - oh boy was that done to death. I just want to do things that really give me a kick", he says of the series that put him on the Hollywood map.
Director Richard Donner is said to have an idea for a "Lethal Weapon 5" that would be set within a 24-hour time period "For Lethal Weapon 5 it would have to be a story that would be worthwhile, but I think maybe there is something out there", Donner said.
"I could do one [this film] tomorrow", Donner said a couple of years back, later adding that he'd like to put "the franchise to bed properly".
Unless he's planning on having Chris Rock carry the film (because Danny Glover isn't keen on doing another either), the series has been put to bed as well as it will ever be. Unlikely to happen though, since Donner - unlike Miller - won't do the film without having Gibson onboard.
"If they want to go and make it without Mel well, go ahead and be my guest but it's not for me. Mel is Lethal Weapon," he said.

Mel Gibson has just turned down an offer to do a "Lethal Weapon 5". Richard Donner was pretty keen, and Danny Glover was, to some extent too, but Gibson was just plain "uninterested" [...]

[04.09.2004] Bei CS! gibt es ein Interview mit Danny Glover...
[...] When asked about doing another "Lethal Weapon" movie, he scoffed at the idea, putting the final nail in the coffin of the successful franchise. "It's an oxymoron to some extent. Whether there's going to be 'Lethal Weapon' movie, I mean, I know that there's not going to be another one, so to fascinate over that... It had its life and it was a part of my life at one point in time. To say that if it came again, would I do it is like saying..." (While he couldn't come up with an analogy, it seemed pretty clear that it wasn't very likely to happen.) [...]

Mel Gibson has reportedly been offered a fat $30 million to strap on the gun holster again for a fifth and final chapter in the life of that of Martin Riggs.
With "Mad Max : Fury Road" indefinitely shelved, Gibson is said to be open to a "Lethal Weapon 5", made even more alluring by the lucrative offer Warner have made him.
Mel's main concern about doing another "Lethal Weapon" is that he believes he's too old for the action sequences. Again, easily fixed by greenbacks.
Funnily enough, it might be co-star Danny Glover that needs to be coaxed into doing it. Glover announced a few years back that he doesn't intend on doing another one, and is apparently standing by that decision. Should he not return, one possibility that's been discussed a few times is bringing in Chris Rock's character, Lee Butters,to fill the void.
Richard Donner is likely to again direct, should it come off. Though he hasn't yet put pen to paper, he apparently has a story in mind.
The "Lethal Weapon" films are one of the most profitable movie franchises in Hollywood history, making a combined $US500 million at the US box office.
Gibson's $30 million dollar salary offer is the amount believed to have been offered to Bruce Willis for a "Die Hard 4", Sylvester Stallone for a "Rambo 4" and Harrison Ford for the next "Indiana Jones".

[11.03.2004] NineMSN meldet...
[...] Richard Donner, director of the four Lethal Weapon movies, is keen to shoot Lethal Weapon 5, but it all hinges on Gibson being willing to resurrect his crazy cop character Martin Riggs.
"It's up to Mel," Donner said.
"If he says yes then there's another Lethal Weapon. I have a great story, I'd love to do it and put Lethal Weapon to bed." [...]
Donner said he would not be involved in Lethal Weapon 5 unless Gibson took part.
"If they want to go and make it without Mel well, go ahead and be my guest but it's not for me. Mel is Lethal Weapon," he said.
Donner has not written a Lethal Weapon 5 script, however, he has a story in his head.
"It was hard for Mel to do Lethal 4. It was really hard on him," Donner said.
"For Lethal Weapon 5 it would have to be a story that would be worthwhile, but I think maybe there is something out there."

[14.02.2004] Moviehole sprach mit Mel Gibson...
[...] Gibson talks about the future of the "Lethal Weapon" and "Mad Max" franchises and it doesn't sound like he'll be playing either Martin Riggs or 'Mad' Max ever again - which will especially annoy those anxiously awaiting for the recently postponed "Mad Max 4 : Fury Road".
He laughs when asked how much money he still gets offered for a new "Lethal Weapon". "Ah, good question. I’m too old and I can’t deal with the action stuff anymore." [...]

[19.11.2003] Die Calgary Sun sprach kürzlich mit Richard Donner...
[...] Donner, who directed all four of the Lethal Weapon movies, feels there's still life in the franchise that has netted more than a billion dollars worldwide.
"I have the story in my head for a fifth and final Lethal Weapon, but it's all up to Mel Gibson," says Donner, who directed Paul Walker in the time travel adventure Timeline that opens Nov. 26.
"It would be 24 hours in the lives of Riggs (Gibson) and Murtaugh (Danny Glover). The last couple of times I talked to Mel, it really seemed he was interested in doing one more.
"I really want to put the franchise to bed properly." [...]

[21.11.2002] Blickpunkt:Film meldet...
[...] Kein Scherz, Teil Fünf von Richard Donners legendärer Actionreihe soll tatsächlich realisiert werden - und zwar schon im nächsten Jahr.
Zuvor haben die Macher allerdings noch ein (ziemlich großes) Problem aus dem Weg zu räumen: "Lethal Weapon"-Schlachtross Mel Gibson inszeniert inzwischen nämlich viel lieber mehrsprachige Bibel-Epen, als nochmal als kalifornischer Proll-Cop Martin Riggs die Straßen von L.A. zu säubern.
Für den Ernstfall, dass Gibson tatsächlich absagen sollte, liegt aber angeblich schon ein alternativer Plot in der Schublade. Die Idee: Danny Glover alias Roger Murtaugh wird aus dem Ruhestand zurück geholt, um den Tod seines alten Kumpels zu rächen...

[19.11.2002] AICN meldet...
A couple of days ago, Danny Glover mentioned on a radio station somewhere out there in the world that we hadn't seen the last of the Lethal Weapon movies. That wasn't enough info for me to put a story together on, but when I got this email (which I've messed with a bit to protect smiley's source) I knew there was talks at the least...
[...] I bumped into old friend last Friday. He works on ______ for flicks - the lethal weapon movies among them.. And what's on his scheudle for 2003? ....None other than a 5th "Lethal Weapon" movie. Now while hardly anything's written in stone, Warners has contacted him about a possible job come next Fall. It'll be for...Lethal Weapon 5.
Yep, I know what you're saying - how they going to convince Mel Gibson to come back for that one. After all he seems pretty determined that he's not doing any more. We'll thing is, as much as they'd love him to Riggs up again, they're thinking of an alternative - and that alternative is reportedly writing Riggs off. The rough outline of LW5 would centre on Danny Glover's character, Roger, pulled out of retirement to avenge his late partners death, none other than Martin Riggs.
No script, No stars, no nothing yet....but fans of the series might atleast be interested to know it will be continuing. goor or bad as that is. [...]
