Lethal Weapon 5 has had a few false starts over the years, as the project just never seemed to be able to get any traction. Now, Richard Donner is ready to bring his buddy action-comedy to a conclusion with a movie that will reunite Mel Gibson and Danny Glover on the big screen. It was seeing the two actors together again that actually inspired Donner to get moving on Lethal Weapon 5. The legendary filmmaker was honored by the Academy earlier this year, and Gibson and Glover were onstage together to honor Donner. After seeing the two of them reunited and how the audience “loved them,” Donner decided that people were ready to see one more Lethal Weapon movie.
