Lethal Weapon 5: Mel Gibson confirms work is being done on a fifth film.

Mel Gibson is on board to reunite with Danny Glover and original director Richard Donner for Lethal Weapon 5.

Mel Gibson is currently promoting his new movie Fatman. During a recent chat with Good Morning America, the actor was asked if Lethal Weapon 5 was still a possibility. Gibson didn't have much to say in the way of specifics but he did confirm that Richard Donner is indeed working on it as we speak. Here's what Gibson had to say.

"Absolutely. The man who was behind all of that, the man who brought it to the screen and gave it the goodies is working on it right now, Richard Donner. He's a legend."

The 'Lethal Weapon' franchise was created by Shane Black and launched back in 1987. All four films of the franchise were directed by Richard Donner and starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh. Each film proved to be very successful at the box office and the franchise as a whole has grossed $950 million at the worldwide box office.
