Lethal Weapon

In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon paired Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the first of four buddy cop films. It made Gibson a star, proving he was more than just Mad Max, and Glover made “I’m too old for this shit” a catch phrase that has lasted the decades. For 2016, Fox introduces a new Riggs and Murtaugh for the small screen, played by Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans respectively.

Matt Miller created the TV incarnation, with producers Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz. McG directed the pilot. At their TCA panel, Lin said the show wouldn’t interfere with any future movie plans and that they were considering incorporating the characters Leo Getz and Lorna Cole, played by Joe Pesci and Rene Russo in the films, later in the series. We spoke with Miller, Lin and Gwartz at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association.  Read More »

However, as a new video essay points out, there’s something special about how the director of The Nice Guys and the writer of Lethal Weapon uses violence in his films.
