‘24: Legacy,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ‘The Exorcist’ Get First FOX Photos
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.
Where FOX had previously taken 24: Legacy to series with Walking Dead star Corey Hawkins in the lead role (with Kiefer Sutherland producing), the first photo has finally emerged. So too do we see Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans as the new Riggs and Murtaugh of Lethal Weapon, along with Alfonso Herrera and Geena Davis in Jeremy Slater’s new Exorcist.
