”Lethal Weapon was my first exposure to Mr. Black’s work and I’ve been a fan of his writing ever since,” says Fanboys screenwriter Ernest Cline, a self-professed Shane Black obsessive. ”If you haven’t seen this action classic, Mad Max plays an ex-Special Forces L.A. cop with a death wish, and his partner, Danny Glover, is one week from retirement. Three sequels later, this idea was still selling movie tickets.”
