Jordana Brewster (“Furious 7”) has joined the cast of the “Lethal Weapon” reboot pilot on FOX. Brewster will play Maureen Cahill, an L.A.P.D. hostage negotiator and in-house therapist who works with traumatized cops.
She joins Damon Wayans Sr. as Roger Murtaugh and Golden Brooks as his wife in this small screeb reboot of the franchise. The role of Martin Riggs, played by Mel Gibson in the films, has yet to be cast.
Like the films, the story revolves around two mismatched LAPD partners – one who is recovering from a traumatic loss, the other who needs to avoid stress after suffering a heart attack. Matt Miller, McG, Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz are executive producing.
