FILM: Lethal Weapon 5

Shane Black, who is best known for writing the four films in the Lethal Weapon series, has written a fifth where Riggs (Mel Gibson) stalls his retirement by dragging Murtaugh (Danny Glover) out of his to solve one final case.

While I do enjoy Lethal Weapon, Black shouldn't sell himself short. The last film he did, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang starring Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer, was very well-written and really funny. Maybe it wasn't his idea. Maybe Gibson needs to revamp his public persona.

Either way, will you watch another Lethal Weapon?

Update: Columbus Short (Stomp the Yard) has been tapped to play Murtaugh's son.
