Lethal Weapon is an American buddy cop action-comedy media franchise created by Shane Black. It focuses on two Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives, Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh.

The franchise consists of a series of four films released between 1987 and 1998 and a television series which aired from 2016 to 2019. The four films were directed by Richard Donner and also share many of the same core cast members, while the television series is a reboot with different actors.

Although the first film was not explicitly a comedy, the later films and the television series gradually became comedic in nature.A proposed fifth Lethal Weapon film had been in talks and development since 2007, but has yet to make it into production.

In September of 2022, director Mel Gibson expressed confidence that the film would begin shooting in the early months of 2023, and will most likely see a release date the same year.

Dynatic Films is the #1 destination for all movie fans to catch the latest movie news, breakdowns as well as exclusive movie secrets & more!A fresh report suggests that the long-gestating buddy cop sequelย Lethal Weapon 5ย will shoot next year, with Mel Gibson in the directorโ€™s chair.

We know that a fifth entry in theย Lethal Weaponย series has been in the works for a long time. The late, great Richard Donner โ€“ director of the first four films โ€“ was working on it before he passed away in 2021. Then,ย in the same year we heardย that Mel Gibson, one half of the seriesโ€™ leading duo was set to take over the directorial reins. Of course, a lot has happened in the world since 2021, with a lot of that turbulence directly affecting Hollywood film production. However, despite all of the uncertainty, Hollywood insider Daniel Richtman (viaย World of Reel)ย is reporting thatย Lethal Weapon 5ย will shoot next year.

According to the report, Jez Butterworth, the writer behindย Edge Of Tomorrowย andย Le Mans 66ย (known asย Ford Vs Ferrariย everywhere else) has penned the latest script based on Donnerโ€™s original idea for the film. Warner Bros are behind the project and Danny Glover is set to reprise his role as the long-suffering Roger Murtaugh alongside Gibsonโ€™s Martin Riggs.

Should this report prove to be accurate, where this leaves Gibsonโ€™s other long-gestating directorial project,ย The Passion Of The Christ 2,ย we donโ€™t know. That project is currently going under the title ofย Resurrectionย and was said to be โ€˜on the eve of productionโ€™ back in February of this year. Of course, the actorsโ€™ strike may well have thrown a spanner into the works there, but given how long weโ€™ve heard talk of follow-up films to bothย Lethal Weaponย andย The Passion Of The Christ,ย the thought that both could suddenly film in the space of a calendar year seems unlikely.

It will be at least 20 years since the release ofย The Passion Of The Christย and even more since we last saw a newย Lethal Weaponย movie on our screens. The question of whether the world has moved on in that time remains to be answered. Whether either of these Mel Gibson-directed films will actually happen in 2024 is perhaps a more pressing question, but Gibson does have a film (probably) due out in 2024 โ€“ that beingย Flight Risk,ย a project headlined by Mark Wahlberg that is (probably) due to release year.
