Since Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are now literally too old for this shit, it looks like Warner Bros. is aiming to reboot the Lethal Weapon franchise, and hire someone who is not too old for said shit. According to The Tracking Board, Chris Hemsworth has been offered the lead in a Lethal Weapon reboot directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6). The script centers on “the desires of an older cop’s son (presumably Riggs’) and his wishes to join the police force.” This plot would leave the door open to connect the reboot with the originals, which could allow Gibson and/or Glover to have cameo or supporting roles.
