These days, reboots are all the rage in film. Now its believed that Fast & Furious director Justin Lin has his eyes set on a Lethal Weapon reboot. If that news isnt exciting on its own, then its who he has his sights set on that should really be the talk of the industry.
The Tracking Board reports that Lin wants none other than Thors Chris Hemsworth to take the lead role in the upcoming reboot for Lethal Weapon. As some of you may or should know, Australian actor Mel Gibson took the title role of Martin Riggs, and it looks like Aussie native Chris Hemsworth may follow in his footsteps.

Fail. Just like all the other 80s reboots.
It’s official. Hollywood has run out of new ideas.
Ok how many Mel Gibson leathel movies were they I think 4
Epic fail to remake. . Hollywood is. Void of any new ideas
Didn’t they learn anything from Total Recall and RoboCop?
And will he be doing the naked bun shot at the beginning?
Time for Hollywood to shut down, or dynamite the model and start over.
“Its official. Hollywood has run out of new ideas.”
Hollywood themselves may have run out of ideas, but there’s thousands of great books that could be made into powerful, entertaining movies that would make a lot of money if talented screenwriters and directors were utilized.
For example, I’m reading Willa Cather’s “My Ántonia” right now, and both it and her “O Pioneer!” could be made into amazing movies. Likewise, I just finished reading Michael Lewis’s “Flash Boys”, which could be made into an awesome movie as well.
Would love to see some smart money found a new studio dedicated to making movies that tell a story. It really doesn’t matter what the story is or what it is about, just so long as the movie tells a great story.
I think “Hurt Locker” was the last movie I remember that told a story, and that was years ago, and I can’t remember the last movie before that that told a great story.
I can’t see it. Bruce Willis made Die hard with his natural deadpan sardonic humor and I just can’t see Hemsworth pulling that off.
I’m really liking “Turn” on AMC about Washington’s Culper spy ring.
Who are they looking at for the Danny Glover part, Jamie Foxx?
Lethal weapon one rocked
Lethal weapon two was full of political crap but was still pretty good
The third one sucked
didn’t see any of the others.
Hollywood is dead.
Spike Lee for Murtaugh?
“For example, Im reading Willa Cathers My Ántonia right now...”
“and her O Pioneer!”
And DONE AGAIN: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105038/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
“I just finished reading Michael Lewiss Flash Boys, which could be made into an awesome movie as well.”
Can’t get much lamer than that.
“Spike Lee for Murtaugh?”
S-u-r-e, why not? And this time the mega powerful dope dealer will be a good guy selling “medical” marijuana while the bad guy can be a racist Donald Sterling type team owner who...
Oh, never mind.
Communist creativity = ZERO.
Just caught the original total recall the other day it holds up pretty well
Didn’t they see Donald Trump’s youtube video....
