"Thor" star Chris Hemsworth is reportedly in talks to lead the cast of a planned [Lethal Weapon Reboot](movie:1409982). If the rumors are true, the Australian heartthrob will play the son of an older cop, thought to be Mel Gibson's Martin Riggs character. "Fast And Furious" director Justin Lin is attached to direct the film, titled "Lionhunters", according to CinemaBlend.com.
It is not clear if Gibson or Danny Glover, the original stars of "Lethal Weapon", will be part of the movie, but Gibson denied involvement in any kind of Lethal Weapon project during a 2012 Total Film interview, stating, "I think the way things are going, they'll just remake those somehow." The last film in the "Lethal Weapon" series was "Lethal Weapon 4" in 1998, which introduces Jet Li to Western audiences. The original film hit cinemas in 1987.
