Top Gun sequel? You can be my wingman any time

06.28.2010

When your new movies open to shaky box office and less than generous reviews, perhaps it's time to resuscitate an older, familiar movie and blast it down the runway?

That's possibly in the cards for producer Jerry Bruckheimer and former hotshot pilot Tom Cruise. The Brucks tells MTV that the long-discussed TOP GUN sequel might be getting some fuel: "We tried to develop [a sequel] and we couldn't do it -- I was with my partner Don Simpson. And then Tom took it over and he tried to develop something and it never quite happened."

"We were recently approached again to start talking about it but, you know, nothing yet. We kicked around some ideas because the aviation community has completely changed since we made the movie a long time ago. So we have to find a way in and how to incorporate the Maverick character into it."

Cruise is currently planning a fourth MISSION IMPOSSIBLE movie and a return as TROPIC THUNDER's aggressive producer Les Grossman, but coasting on nostalgia instead of (withering?) charm might launch him back toward the top at Mach 4. And despite the occasional hiccup (although PRINCE OF PERSIA's global receipts are fine), Bruckheimer is king of the summer tentpole.

But is TOP GUN beloved for its quality or its cheese factor? Would a TOP GUN follow-up sizzle like the original (made in the days before CG onslaught)? Would there be room for the current incarnation of Val Kilmer? And more importantly, would the sequel feature Goose's ghost?

Quentin Tarantino discusses the homoerotic undertones of the first movie:

It'll be like stealth...

Hmm...the plot will center around un-manned aircraft drones and how Maverick doesn't trust them, and how there's nothing better than training a "real man" in the cockpit.

LOL...now if you got Tom Cruise to actually SAY "there's nothing like a Real Man in the cock pit" then by all means, I am there :)

Talk about bigger homo-erotica than the first movie!

Well it could be done. Maverick as an instructor for top gun trains a couple of new rookies how to fly in preparation for an aerial battle with a bunch of iranian air force pilots who are making illegal air raids on afghanistan.

No thanks

Unnecessary sequel. Besides, I think they sort of made it already...wasn't there a porn called "Gay Studs Playing Beach Volleyball 2"?

Support This

Seriously. Everyone needs to throw nothing but their full support behind a Top Gun Sequel. Why? Because if not, youre gonna get a Top Gun remake instead. And we dont need that.

I'd rather see a mediocre sequel than a failure of a remake.

This is going to be a remake eventually. And you know they're going to try hard to avoid the blatant homoeroticism this time around.

A sequel to this movie does not need to be made and I hope they don't but I'd much rather see a follow-up to the original than a remake of it

Just plain silly, in a bad way. I see no overall point that could be made by making a sequel to a pretty vapid film in the first place.

No thanks......Top Gun belongs in the 80's.

They already tried doing something similar with Cruise in Days of Thunder (Top Gun on wheels).

If this sucks, the people in charge will be flying a plane full of dog shit.

This is a horrible idea. Top Gun is a great movie and doesn't need a sequel. Not every movie needs a sequel, sometimes it is just great to make one good movie and then to just move on. Top Gun is one of my favorite movies and I would hate to see it have a sequel.

Don't bother making the sequel, besides, in a few years we can all expect a remake of Top Gun anyway.

NEGATIVE GHOSTRIDER!!!

THE PATTERN IS FULL!

Top Gun practically stands alone as one of the greatest fun action flicks to NOT ever go into sequel mode... LEAVE IT THAT WAY!

Never really cared for the original when it came out in the theater, and probably the only way I'd see a sequel is if they brought Kilmer's character back as a zombie that could fly. Not planes, but actually fly like Superman.

That's the only way the absurdity would work for me.
