Mel Gibson has ruled out starring in another Lethal Weapon movie, and predicted the original films will be remade instead.

The Hollywood actor teamed up with Danny Glover for the groundbreaking 1987 'buddy cop' movie, and they went on to shoot three sequels which were all box office hits.

Gibson has scuppered fans' hopes for a fifth movie in the franchise by insisting he will not reprise his role as unhinged cop Martin Riggs, and he is adamant producers will simply reboot the series instead.

"I think the way things are going with Total Recall, they'll just remake those somehow," Gibson told movie news website ComingSoon.net.

"Though it's really tough to replace Danny. He was so amazing in those things. It was a good gig for us. It worked. But we knew it would."
