    Hollywood tracking board TrackingB.com 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.

    TrackingB.com says that Gibson and Glover are down to return, but no deals have been signed.

    The first film was released in 1987, the second in 1989, the third in 1992 and the fourth in 1998.

    Sweet! Lethal Weapon 4 was such an improvement over part 3 and I'm a sucker for sequels so hopefully everybody signs on.

    Part 3 had the best opening scene next to Part 4. I guess Martin's kid will get involved somehow this time as well

    I think we're going to have one big year sometime soon with all of these sequels they're planning on releasing: 'The Goonies 2', 'Lethal Weapon 5', 'Tr2n', and a few others I believe. I can pretty much guess that they're going to have all of these films released in the same year as one another and, I can only hope for the best for all of them because I loved the originals.

    This is an odd news peice.

    Shane didnt even want to do LW2 and now hes doing 5. And Mel has been saying no forever. I guess he needs to shape up after his public persona.

    That's what I picture them saying at the end, along with every other 'Lethal Weapon' fan. Sort of a trademark for the series, I guess, like John McClane's "Yippee Kiya, Mother %$^!er".

    Part 4 was pretty bad but I'd be willing to give another outing a chance.

    If Stallone can do Rocky Balboa and Rambo Glover and Gibson can do Lethal Weapon 5 and maybe Road Warrior sequel i think an actor like Mel at his age wants a break but then when its done. Then getting the acting bug back. Happens to all actors.

    They'd still have to get Donner to direct, and the rest of the "gang" to come back though: Joe Pesci, Rene Russo, Chris Rock, and the Murtaugh family also.

    I know a lot of people are getting sick of old movie series being brought back after a long time but this one just like Die Hard, I'm definitely going to catch if it comes true.

    Excellent. With Shane Black and hopefully the original crew back, I'd catch this film in a heartbeat.

    The humor always cracked me up.

    "Rog..."
    "Yeah?"
    "Grab the cat."
