15 Casting Suggestions for Riggs and Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon Remake

As detailed in this morning's edition of The Broadsheet, Hollywood went remake crazy while you were sleeping, with planned relaunches of Lethal Weapon, Westworld, The Wild Bunch and Annie all presumably coming to a theater near you in the next five years. Nothing there should inherently surprise you -- this is Hollywood after all, where announcing remakes is otherwise known as a weekday -- but it's still a bit demoralizing. With that in mind, let's remoralize! (Invented word!) Ahead, Movieline offers 15 duos who might make the planned relaunch of Lethal Weapon almost tolerable. Suggestions welcome.

[Please note: This list is a mix of absurd ridiculousness and "I would totally see that!" wishful thinking. Not that you needed that disclaimer, but anyway. There it is.]
