Richard Donner – who directed and produced all four previous Lethal Weapon films – died earlier this year while developing movie No. 5.

According to reports, Gibson let it slip at a recent event in London that he would take over directorial duties to fulfill Donner's wishes.

"He was developing the screenplay and he got pretty far along with it. And he said to me one day, 'Listen kid, if I kick the bucket, you will do it.' And I said: 'Shut up,'" Gibson said, according to the outlet. "He did indeed pass away, but he did ask me to do it, and, at the time, I didn't say anything. He said it to his wife and to the studio and the producer. So, I will be directing the fifth one."

Mel is also reportedly set to reprise his role as Martin Riggs.

In light of the news, many can't help but think back on Gibson's infamous threats to kill his former girlfriend and repeated use of the N-word.

Back in 2010, Radar obtained and published several stomach-turning audio tapes that captured Mel making horrific statements to and about Oksana Grigorieva.

In them, he suggested the Russian singer-songwriter's "provocative" clothing was to going to get her raped by a "pack of n----rs."

He also admitting that he had hit her, knocking out her teeth, while she was holding their child. "You f--king deserved it," he was heard shouting.

Mel's apparent dislike of all minorities came out at another point during the rant, during which he used the term "wetback" to describe a nanny who worked for the former couple.

He later demanded that Oksana perform oral sex on him while also threatening more physical harm to her.

Gibson went on to call Grigorieva a "b---h, c--t, whore and gold digger," and blamed his apparent financial woes on her.
