Top Gun 2 (2016) – A new Top Gun Sequel?

The news of Top Gun 2 brought up a few memories when I heard the news of a sequel today.Tom Cruise, Goose and Kenny Loggins. However, hang on.. what is Top Gun 2 about? Details are still early for this new Top Gun Movie, we know that Tom Cruise is back but they are telling us his level of participation in Top Gun 2.

Top Gun 2

 

Details are sketchy, but Paramount Pictures has made offers to producer Jerry Bruckheimer for a Top Gun Sequel. The death of Tony Scott isn’t going to stop this movie, by all accounts. Rumor has it Tom Cruise is just in the film as a cameo role, probably as the new ‘Viper’ to replace Tom Skerritt’s character. So obviously, ‘Maverick’ is in, and it would fucking rock of somehow ‘Iceman’ could comeback too. But now that Val Kilmer is too fat and outcast, to be considered in any manner for Top Gun 2, forget it.

Other rumors being thrown around is the film most likely will take place in and around the middle east. One other rumour has the sequel taking place over North Korea. Apparently Tom Cruise is called into action while on a Top Gun teaching mission in South Korea, when shit hits the fan in the area.

As of October 2014, the plot has changed… and it STINKS. Apparently it’s Maverick vs Drones, as the old boy tries to demonstrate to the world that you need human pilots to succeed…and not drones..

“The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they’re not obsolete. They’re here to stay,” explained the producer.

Ugh. Cue the typical hollywood ‘feel good’ message.

There will be no other original cast members included in the new Top Gun movie, this is a good thing. I mean, Goose is dead and Charlie (Kelly McGillis) sort of looks like Bruce Jenner now.

Loyal blog reader ‘Jeff_Dahmer’ says the role of the lead female has been offered to … get ready for this … Katie Holmes! This was the early stages of the script, when Tommy and his wife were still together though.  ‘Paul In Boston’ wrote us, telling us it was all but confirmed that the lead female role is almost always left up to Tom Cruise to pick, so could Holmes be in this Top Gun sequel? Doubt it.

The Top Gun Sequel will probably suck a fair amount. no matter where it takes place. We are really interested to see how they play this out. Will it really be based on an older Maverick returning to Miramar to teach the young pilots? Is it true Jester (Michael Ironside) will be making a cameo appearance? We will all know in the near future , as the script rolls out so does the insider gossip on the plot. You have to consider that this script is 3 years in the making, and was originally supposed to be a 2012.

Will The New Top Gun Movie Happen?

It looks that way. As of fall 2014, Tom Cruise and Bruckheimer are still working on the script. You don’t normally keep plugging away at dead movie projects, and Tom Cruise really wants the new Top Gun movie to move forward. Bruckheimer really wants to continue Scott’s vision of the movie ,and just recently said  despite Scott’s untimely death, there had been some development on it. “We’re still working on the script,”

 

Boring Fast Fact

I lost my virginity to ‘Take My Breath Away’ in 1986.  Seems like yesterday I was rolling around the streets in my Nissan Pulsar,  picking up chicks and rocking hard to my Top Gun Soundtrack cassette. 6×9 speakers, and Highway To The Danger Zone! fellas…  bring back memories? Right guys? right? *High Five*

Top Gun 2 Release Date

Look for Top Gun 2 to hit theaters in 2015 or 2016 at the … it depends if Jerry can convince his buddies that people have the need, THE NEED FOR SPEED. (See what I just did there?)

Who’s In the sequel?

Tom Cruise… that’s it for now

What’s Good About It?

Fighter Jets and a decent production team. I can finally pull out my old leather jacket and wear it again proudly.

What’s Bad About It?

Not sure how they could improve on the original. Have you seen what happened to Kelly McGillis? Hold on boys, here goes your fond childhood memories : Probably a good thing Maverick made a run for the hills at the end of the original Top Gun movie. What are your thoughts on another Top Gun? The first one was great for its day, why the need to make another one? Wouldn’t it have made sense to just remake the franchise under a different name? Does anyone care?

    I always loved top gun…I agree the desert setting is a goppod start but the new mavrick must be polayed by Ryan Reynolds. and Tommy as the new flight instructor at top gun. Some how there shoub be a none corny story line for thias and this is where people could get creative. I have alweays had a good plot fopr this. I have served in the US Armed Forces and has an p[retty good idea what it’s like so this is off top of my head ..if we can inter link a sequal to GI Jane and inter link it with TOP GUN we can calkl It TOP GUN Desert ACES!! the whole story would go around a declarated cocky arrgant Navy pilot played by Ryan Reynoldswith troubled merrige to Demi who is a Mr and Mrs smith like Navy Seal operator in charge or command of a elite navy seal team..ashe is bound by outh to desclose her actual duties as a navalk officer to her hot shot navy pilot husband who is always in the spot light with his dealing..considering these thow movies both involver the navy its a pretty easy plot…Reynolds and Demi’s merrige hangs in a bine when reynolds suspects his wife of having an affair when she doesn’t show when she is suppos to never at where she is suppose to be.. gone off days at of time…picks a fight with demi and totly cruel and inseative to her…demi goes off and leave with tears to cool off reynolds get called into action over a hostage situation over middle east or valued targer..during mission grund to air missile takes out 2 BIRDS FROM HIS SQUADRON AND HIM SELF SHUT down behind enemmy lines and totaaly out numbered and out armed..co pilot in criticle condition he manages to hide out and hold for rescue….and this is where GI Jane comes to play also engadges in special ops operation in the region no other then his mystery wife..and her elite seal team totaly engades the enemy and rescues the pilot and co pilot duo of course its not sobby unless yoiu show few members of her team paying the ulitmate sacrafise when duty calls shot and injured her self she comes to her husbands aid and he has no idea who is behind the hat and the como paint till she is called out by a seal command by radio for mission status… then you get to see the moment when his eyes meets hers and all the doubts and acusations as she turns to him and assures all clear and he is going home….I think they can figure outthe rest this is just an idea I think it’ll be great….to see these two movies inter link. and of course the co pilot could be TOM or he can very well be one of the aces shot down..and we can put Mavrick to rest…. well hope to see top gun in theaters soon..!!!
