A random chap by the name of Columbus Short, who stars in the soon-to-be-released horror Quarantine, has told IGN that he is up for a role in the new Lethal Weapon film. He also says that the production has now been "fast tracked"; meaning, it will go into production once of the cast and crew have been placed. Before you all utter a collective sigh, let me remind you that Shane Black (who penned the first film) wrote this script on spec (without studio funding), and previously, Warner Bros. had no intention of making another sequel until they seen it. We wanna see Riggs get a little crazy again, and being with all that's happened with Mel Gibson, that probably wouldn't be too difficult to fathom. Expect it to have humour, but not be the self indulgent chuckle seeker of the fourth film.
