Movie bosses are forging ahead with plans to reboot Mel Gibson's Lethal Weapon franchise with a new cast after the actor refused to take part. Gibson cemented his place in Hollywood with his role as a cop in the 1987 original, and he reprised the role for three sequels. Rumors of a fifth movie in the series emerged in 2008, but director Richard Donner revealed Gibson had turned down the chance to star in another installment. A new report now suggests plans for Lethal Weapon 5 are still going ahead, with movie executives hiring screenwriter and former Los Angeles police officer Will Beall to create the plot for a new cast. Sherlock Holmes producer Joel Silver is behind the reboot, according to Deadline.com.
