Just over a week ago, our resident scooper Rafe Oman noted that the next “Lethal Weapon” film – long in the works from late director Richard Donner – had inched forward, being produced by Warner’s HBO Max platform.
Over the weekend, Mel Gibson appeared at an event in the UK where he confirmed that the film is indeed happening- he’ll be directing, along with reprising his role as Martin Riggs. Further, Deadline confirmed today that the film is being produced by HBO Max.
Gibson takes over directing duties from Donner, who passed in July aged 91.
