Tom Cruise on Top Gun 2- "We're working on it."

12.08.2011

Tom Cruise recently spoke to MTV and confirmed that they're trying to get TOP GUN 2 prepped for flight.

As previously reported, Tony Scott is all fired up about the idea and has been working on it without even a script having been written.

"I said to Tony I want to make another movie with him. He and I haven't made a film since DAYS OF THUNDER, " Cruise said. "Tony and I and Jerry [Bruckheimer], we never thought that we would do it again. Then they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, 'Wow, that would be ... what we could do now.' "

Christopher McQuarrie was previously hired to write the script, but it seems like they'll be looking for a new writer soon. "I don't think Chris going to write it. Chris is directing ONE SHOT right now, which I'm acting in. We've got to go back in January and finish it," he said.

Cruise really wants thisn to fall into place, though. "I hope we can figure this out to go do it again," he said. "If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot TOP GUN."

It's been twenty five long years since TOP GUN- is that too long, or would you welcome Maverick's return?

The combat spectrum in the aerial arena has changed so much it would almost seem like maverick would be supremely outdated. (not saying that his being a dinosaur in an outdated world wouldn't be cool for a story.)

The use of drones, and computer operated bombing runs, lased ground targets, or aerial runs made from guys that never leave a console on a navy vessel has increased exponentially over the last 25 years...i don't see how maverick would be relevant these days...unless the

The use of drones, and computer operated bombing runs, lased ground targets, or aerial runs made from guys that never leave a console on a navy vessel has increased exponentially over the last 25 years...i don't see how maverick would be relevant these days...unless the story is about taking him to a group of fighter jocks, who don't fly planes via cockpit, but control drones at console, and they use maverick's real world "fighter jock" aerial combat experience as a learning curve for something the drone pilots have never experienced in order to up their game on a type of warfare that's relevant to "know", but it's never "implemented" unless it's like the last possible second...

i've read a few articles and there's literally only like 5 active pilots who have ever seen any real world dog fighting aerial combat akin to what's explored in the first TOP GUN, in a LONG TIME...most active aerial combat guys are bomber pilots and bombardiers, (or even apache chopper pilots)...not dog fighters.

I don't know

Sounds like they didn't like Christopher McQuarrie's script and that Cruise made a point of making it clear it was nothing personal.

Sounds great. As long as Maverick is the primary character again and not playing second fiddle to some new "big shot" I'm game, for sure.

A movie about drones is overdue. Why not make it a Top Gun movie? I have no problems with that.

Tom Cruise is my boy

Nah, he's not a great actor. He's not De Niro, Jr. Then again, he hasn't made New Year's Day or Little Fockers. Love him or hate him, Cruise is a great movie star - and no one can take that from him. Not even the Church of Scientology. Gotta love his spirit.

I FEEL THE NEED, THE NEED FOR SPEED!!!

There is no Sequel without Cruise, plain and simple.
Plus now would be a great time to do it, seeing how people are digging Tom again.

" That’s right! Ice… man. I am dangerous"

Cruise is the F'ing man!

I wonder if they'll have balls enough to call Kelly McGillis and tell her they won't be casting her......or if they'll just kinda let her figure it out on her own.

I'd be up for it, but I'm not sure if you'd get Val Kilmer to fit in a plane these days... sorry. I know that was cheap. And yet I did it anyway.
