Mel Gibson Nixes "Mad Max" and "Lethal Weapon" Returns

by | October 31, 2006 | Comments

In a move that surprises absolutely no one and relieves quite a few, Mel Gibson has announced that he’s officially staying away from any and all sequels to "Lethal Weapon" and "Mad Max" — as if people still have a huge, burning desire to see the guy do action scenes at this point in his career and with all things considered.

From Dark Horizons and IESB.net: "In regards to Max – "They were talking about making one, I think you just watched it [referring to Apocalypto] (laughter) but, you know, I don’t know. I’m gettin’ a little long in the tooth for that one"

As for Weapon – "Oh no, I don’t want to go there again…oh boy was that done to death. I just want to do things that really give me a kick".
