Gibson and Garner talk Maverick sequel

MelGibson.jpgI think this is an incredible stretch, and I can't really believe that Mel Gibson is even considering another Maverick film, but by all accounts he and James Garner have been talking about it.

He actually comments on the whole idea directly, so it's more than just a rumour:

"There's talk of doing another Maverick. Garner and I have been looking at that for a while. It'd be fun to play that character again. I think audiences would probably like to see him again too. We really cooked the first time. We've got some great ideas - I think audiences will enjoy what we've got in mind. It won't be happening immediately, but I dare say, it'll happen."

Well, I don't mean to be rude, but James Garner is getting on in years, and Mel Gibson is doing much bigger and better things these days, how could they possibly be thinking of a sequel to that film? He also puts pay to any Mad Max or Lethal Weapon sequels in the WENN article through Starpulse News Blog:

"We've put Mad Max and Lethal Weapon behind us now. There's nowhere to move with those characters. We were pushing it with the last ones."

I can hardly believe that these are happening, can you? Maverick over any other of his films? I never really saw the appeal of the film myself, I would have thought that there are plenty of other great sequels sitting in his career, and even then his directing seems much more important and worthwhile.



Unexpected to say the least. I did quite enjoy the original film though.

I remember quite liking Maverick. The time for a sequel is several years past by now, though.

Yeah. Weird choice, but I really liked Maverick; one of those surprise pleasures. I think a sequel could be fun, I'm just surprised he's choosing to do it.
