According to the insider, Mel “has barely contained rage about the series,” which stars Clayne Crawford as Martin Riggs and Damon Waynes as Roger Murtaugh, the LA-based cop team made famous in the 1980s and 1990s by Mel and his co-star Danny Glover in four hit Lethal Weapon movies.

“He’s just annoyed that this TV series is out there and making people forget about the big chunk of his life he devoted to making those four films huge hits,” claimed the source. And he’s especially ticked that the TV series has put a dent in his own plans for a film reboot.

“It’s definitely weakened hopes for a Lethal Weapon film relaunch he’s been working on with original writer Shane Black,” said the insider. “He wants the show to go away and rants and raves about it non-stop.”
