'Lethal Weapon' Remake: Mel Gibson Hints Original 'Buddy Cop' Film Could Get A Reboot

Gibson has scuppered fans' hopes for a fifth movie in the franchise by insisting he will not reprise his role as unhinged cop Martin Riggs, and he is adamant producers will simply reboot the series instead.

Asked by editors at movie news website ComingSoon.net if he would film another Lethal Weapon sequel, Gibson says, "No, I think the way things are going with Total Recall, they'll just remake those somehow. Though it's really tough to replace Danny. He was so amazing in those things. It was a good gig for us. It worked. But we knew it would."
