Silver Studios today announced that there would be a fifth film in the Lethal Weapon franchise.
Mel Gibson was confirmed to be coming back as Martin Riggs, a bad arse cop who is known for getting under people's skin.
Gibson who has been shunned by a lot of Hollywood studios and directors for his anti Semitic remarks clearly wants to make amends.
A Hollywood insider informed TMZ that Gibson will be directing the film as well as starring in his recurring role. Gibson reportedly wanted a Jewish actor to star alongside him, Jerry Seinfeld was considered but turned him down.
Enter Jeff Ross, the proudly Jewish comedian was more than happy to share the lime light with Gibson.
"This was a great opportunity and you should see the amount of coin they are paying me," remarked Ross with a cheeky smile on his face. "Who said guilt was a bad thing?"
Danny Glover who played Roger Murtaugh, Rigg's partner will make a cameo appearance in the film where he officially announces his retirement. Jeff Ross will play Herbert Petersen, Rigg's new partner.
The two of them will then team up to investigate a strange abduction. The path will lead them to a secret government organization called "The men in black" where the duo will square off against Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.
The movie is expected to be released sometime in 2016.
