The details surrounding Lethal Weapon 5 are scarce, and many are wondering if the movie has a release date in 2023 or 2024, or whether it has been canceled altogether. Here’s what we know about the Lethal Weapon sequel, directed by Mel Gibson, and starring both Danny Glover and Bob Jennings.
What is the Lethal Weapon 5 release date?
Lethal Weapon 5 does not have an official release date at the time of writing. While a sequel is in the early stages of development, there has been no news or reports about filming taking place. Gibson did originally state that he expected the movie to “probably shoot” in the “first quarter” of 2023 (via Screen Rant). The clock is ticking on that timeframe.
Has Lethal Weapon 5 been canceled?
No, Lethal Weapon 5 has not been canceled. While filming might be delayed, it still appears that the movie is a project that will be moving ahead at some point in the near future.
Gibson had previously commented that the delays surrounding the film were because of the Discovery and Warner Bros. merger, explaining that “it always takes time for these companies to regroup.” Exactly when they’ll reform a team around Lethal Weapon 5 remains to be seen.
