Time for Steve Guttenberg to revive Officer Mahoney.

From what I hear, this may well be in the works, and The Gutt has said he's interested. Not sure if the script that's making the rounds is for yet another sequel (Police Academy 8) or a pseudo-remake with Mahoney revamped as an instructor.

Curiously, after virtually disappearing for close to 10 years, the Guttenberg seems to be making a major comeback of sorts, having done a buttload of guest spots on various TV dramas in the past couple of years. and with 6 films (2 completed, 4 in post-production) scheduled to come out this year and in 2009.

Isn't Rene Russo more or less retired* too?

I'm calling BS on this one. Black declined to write the second movie, because he said he had nothing more to say about these characters. Gibbo has also ruled out returning to the franchise and IIRC Glover also more or less did so.

If they did do a 5th movie, then I'd like to see Black write it, but I don't see it happening.

Looks like Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black has written a spec script for Lethal Weapon 5 and has contacted producer Joel Silver and the two leads, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, who all seem game.

I think this is not surprising news. First Rocky, then John McClane, Rambo and Indiana Jones...Biggs and Murtaugh were the only options left!
Sigh. Not looking forward to it. Since Mel has gone "Jesus Freak" on us I doubt he'll put his "all" into and insist on changes and restrictions to the content (PG-13 here we come!) and 4 was so crap and sacharine that I don't think any additional entries would be worthy; short of making it a good, hard-core action packed fun like the first two; and to not bog it down with the countless secondary characters picked up along the way. (Yes, including Leo.)

But, I'm still on insulin from 4.

Ugh.

In Hollywood terms yes, obviously Mel would need to have a new girlfriend who was about 25 or something (rolleyes aimed at Hollywood not you by the way! )

It should just be Riggs and Murtaugh and, maybe, a visit to Muraugh's family (since they were in the original.) No Leo, no Rigg's wife (and kids), no Chris Rock. Just Riggs and Murtaugh.

Though, Murtaugh should be well into retirement now. Oh! I know! It's a special-secret super case that "only Murtaugh" can help us with so they pull him out of retirement only for the audiance to discover this case really could've been handled by anyone.

Trekker, yes still bitter about X-Files.

They can't break the trend. They have to bring back Pesci, Russo and Rock. Plus they have to add someone else who will come back for the sixth movie.

Glover has categorised and consistently said that he's not interested. Gibson has pretty much said the same.

Clearly I'm in the minority but I loved the fourth one and think it's the best one of the series. Best action, best comedy, Jet Li as the villain. I'd love to see a fifth one.

Not only this but apparantly Paramount is talking with Eddie Murphy about Beverly Hills Cop IV.
Still waiting to hear more. At press for Meet Dave this was brought up and Eddie said he had no desire for it. Perhaps after seeing Meet Daves box office reception he'll change his tune.


As for LW:5, I'm open to it like I have been with the other 80's franchises which frankly haven't dissapointed me upon their return the last 2 years.
