LETHAL WEAPON Reboot Eyeing Chris Hemsworth for Lead Role


Chris Hemsworth has reportedly been offered the lead in a Lethal Weapon reboot directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) from a script being developed by Will Beall (Gangster Squad).

Sources have told The Tracking Board it won’t be a full reboot though, and “the recent version of the script centers on the desires of an older cop’s son (presumably Riggs’) and his wishes to join the police force.”

It is unclear if original stars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, or director Richard Donner and screenwriter Shane Black, will have any involvement in a Lethal Weapon 5.

That doesn’t mean Hemsworth’s going to take it, but he appears to be on the producers’ radar.

Thor star has three movies set for next year: Michael Mann‘s Cyber, Ron Howard‘s Heart of the Sea, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

If the rumors are true it doesn’t bother me. We will hopefully have more information soon.
