Come to think of it, we didn’t need the first one either. The fine folks at Dark Horizons posted a news tidbit, by way of Hollywood.com, about the potential interest in reviving a franchise no one really cares about. The return of Maverick?
Does anyone even remember that movie? I am somewhat of a Richard Donner fan (especially the Shane Black scripted Lethal Weapon) and even I don’t remember that movie. And I know I’ve seen it before too. I worked at a certain video chain many years ago and rented it back when VHS was still dominate. That was only a mere 8 years ago and I still have no recollection of it.
Man, I so wish I could have drawn that in Paint…
Even looking at the stills does nothing for me. Though, I do seem to recall a brief moment in this film that involved Danny Glover. One minute of Danny Glover is simply not enough. His horrific performance in Shooter aside, I’ve always been a Danny Glover fan. Not sure why exactly but there is just something about him I can’t quite put my finger on. Watch Predator 2 and you’ll know what I am talking about.
Why isn’t there more franchises with Danny Glover? Dude could make anything good (again, except his performance in Shooter, which was downright embarrassing). Why wasn’t he in Aliens Vs. Predator? Lord of the Rings? He could kick some Hobbit ass.
