Los Angeles – Actor Mel Gibson will be starring in and directing the fifth installment of ‘Lethal Weapon’. “The man who directed all the Lethal films, Richard Donner, he was a big guy.(Donner) was developing the screenplay and he got pretty far along with it. And he said to me one day, ‘Listen kid, if I kick the bucket you will do it.’ And I said, ‘Shut up.'” He said: “But he did indeed pass away. But he did ask me to do it and at the time I didn’t say anything. He said it to his wife and to the studio and the producer. So I will be directing the fifth one.” The film is expected to enter the production sometime in 2022.
