The end of the ''Lethal Weapon'' franchise

Mel Gibson turns down the possibility of another sequel

Posted on

Danny Glover and Mel Gibson may be reunited (briefly) in Maverick, but don’t count on seeing the two together in another Lethal Weapon flick. When asked about director Richard Donner’s plans for two more sequels, Gibson puts his head in his hands and makes a snoring sound. “My answer to more Lethal Weapons? Nah,” he says. “I know that there’re two scripts out there. My suggestion is that they change the title to Die Hard 3 and 4. Call the scripts Angry Bruce Willis 4. I’m not interested now.”
