Shane Black’s The Nice Guys is currently in theaters, and while you have plenty of viewing options this weekend, making time to see his dark crime comedy should be your chief priority. While making the press rounds for that film, Black has been talking up some of his other projects, past and present, including his idea for another Lethal Weapon sequel that he never got to make.
A lot of people do what Shane Black does. He just does it better.
Boy, did you think a Prison Break revival trailer all FOX had to offer at the chaos of 2016 Upfronts? Carve out some time and pull up a chair, as brand trailers arrive for everything from 24: Legacy, to The Exorcist, Lethal Weapon, new Lord and Miller comedies and even Laverne Cox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Following its initial orders, FOX didn’t waste much time setting up a schedule for the 2016-17 season, including similar event series bows as 24: Live Another Day and The X-Files. This time around, 24: Legacy and Prison Break will get the big midseason debuts, while newer shows like Lethal Weapon will bow on Wednesdays.
It’s that magical, terrifying time of year when series orders and cancellations go out; the new additions releasing their first photos and trailers. So it was with FOX yesterday, and now our first looks at 24 continuation 24: Legacy have arrived, along with movie reboots The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon.
And so, it begins. FOX already got the ball rolling on its new 2016 series with the order of 24: Legacy, and now a number of other reboots have taken hold. Not only has the new take on The Exorcist gotten an official greenlight, so too has the Lethal Weapon reboot, Lord and Miller’s time-travel comedy, a baseball drama and more.
Seeing as we’re going to ride this train of rebooting old movies for TV until kingdom come, FOX’s Lethal Weapon keeps right on chuggin’. Following the announcement of Damon Wayans’ Murtaugh, and a number since, Rectify star Clayne Crawford has joined the Lethal Weapon LAPD as our new Martin Riggs.
The movie-TV reboot train isn’t slowing down anytime soon, and after an October announcement, Lethal Weapon is finally moving forward at FOX with a full pilot order. Not only that, but Damon Wayans Sr. will follow his son to the network, getting too old for this s–t as the new Lethal Weapon’s Roger Murtaugh.
Since Lethal Weapon, Lethal Weapon 2, Lethal Weapon 3 and Lethal Weapon 4 were seemingly not enough, a new series based on the 1987 action movie starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover is in the works at Fox.
The 1987 film 'Lethal Weapon' starred Mel Gibson as a reckless narcotics cop who is reluctantly partnered with a weary homicide detective, played by Danny Glover, to solve a young woman's suicide. Directed by Richard Donner, the action flick was so successful that it spawned three sequels, and there's even been talk of a reboot. Now, 27 years later, we revisit the cast of this buddy-cop classic and see what they're up to these days.
