Richard Donner says ‘Lethal Weapon 5’ is dead in the water


Richard Donner, who directed and produced all four "Lethal Weapon" films but found himself excluded from the recent plans to make a fifth, now says that his old friend Mel Gibson has walked away from the franchise revival.

"Mel turned it down," Donner said. "I would like to think that Mel turned it down because I wasn't involved. Knowing Mel, I would like to think that. Would that be the kind of thing he does? It sure would be."

I checked with Gibson's camp on Sunday night and while they were reluctant to make any official comment, I left the conversation with no doubt in my mind that Donner's account is accurate.
