Tom Cruise Offers a Top Gun 2 Update

Source: ComingSoon

June 11, 2012

Although he didn't expand much beyond what has been said before, Tom Cruise recently spoke with MTV and reiterated that a Top Gun 2 is something he's keen to act in.

"We're working on it," says the Rock of Ages star. "...I want to get in those jets!"

DreamWorks President Adam Goodman recently said something similar, explaining that the studio would like to move forward soon with Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott all returning to their respective roles as leading man, producer and director.

Check out Cruise's full comments here.

No. Just no.

At this age, can Cruise handled feeling the speed?

I think he's more likely to feel the need to have peed...

If this is detailing Duke's teary-eyed confessional to malfeasance and subsequent time in prison it could be interesting. But otherwise it'll suck.

Jerry Bruckheimer Says Top Gun 2 is Still Active

Producer confident about an aerial followup; Lone Ranger, not so much.

by Max Nicholson

June 10, 2013

Following the tragic death of Tony Scott last year, it was assumed that most of the director's slated projects would be left unmade. Narco Sub, Lucky Stripe, and Ion are still left up in the air. However, there may be some good news for Scott and Tom Cruise's planned Top Gun sequel.

While speaking at Sunday's Produced By conference, producer Jerry Bruckheimer said that Top Gun 2 is still a go. "We still want to do it with Tom, and Paramount are still interested in making it," Bruckheimer explained. "What Tom tells me is that no matter where he goes in the world, people refer to him as Maverick. It's something he is excited about, so as long as he keeps his enthusiasm hopefully we'll get it made."

Indeed, it sounds like Top Gun 2 is an inevitability at this point. Less certain, however, is the fate of Bruckheimer's upcoming franchise starter The Lone Ranger.

"Hopefully The Lone Ranger will continue as a sequel," the producer continued. "It's always up to the audience. If the audience likes the movie, then Disney will come to me and we'll make another, or it will be a one-off."

Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop Reboot Moving Forward at Paramount

Source: ComingSoon

December 6, 2013

Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer have today signed a three-year first-look deal, Deadline reports. Among the projects now being targeted for production are a sequel to the 1986 Tony Scott hit Top Gun and a reboot of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise.

The Top Gun followup has been in the works for some time with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete "Maverick" Mitchell. Scott was interested in returning to the director's chair himself prior to his tragic passing last year.

Beverly Hills Cop, meanwhile, has also been looking for a way to return the screen. A recent iteration would have continued the franchise with Brandon T. Jackson starring as the son of Eddie Murphy's Axel Foley. Developed as a CBS pilot, the would-be series did not get picked up. There's no word, at the moment, as to what form a fourth big screen feature will take, but check back for details as they become available. Brett Ratner is attached to direct.

Top Gun 2: Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer Flying Into the Danger Zone

By ComingSoon

January 27, 2016

This May will see the 30th anniversary of Top Gun, the highest-grossing movie of 1986 and the watershed moment in Tom Cruise’s career as a superstar. Despite years of sequel development and delays, some due to the actor’s own reluctance, Cruise now seems fully onboard a Top Gun 2 along with his original Top Gun and Days of Thunder producer Jerry Bruckheimer, as evidenced by a new tweet.

This is the first major public movement on Top Gun 2 since November when Val Kilmer took to Facebook to proclaim he had been asked back to reprise the role of “Iceman,” although he later told Entertainment Weekly that he had “jumped the gun” and that “being offered a role is very different from doing a role.”

Meanwhile, Cruise told the Daily Mail last summer, “It would be fun. I would like to get back into those jets. It would have to be practical. I don’t want any CGI jets. I want to shoot it like how we shot the first one.”

The Top Gun sequel, a follow-up to Tony Scott’s 1986 hit, has been in the works for quite some time with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Original helmer Tony Scott was interested in returning to the director’s chair himself prior to his tragic passing. Only days before Scott died in 2012, he and Cruise had been scouting locations at a naval air station in Fallon, Nevada.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer previously outlined that the film will deal with the rise of unmanned drones and pilots becoming a thing of the past.

“The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? [Tom Cruise as Maverick] is going to show them that they’re not obsolete. They’re here to stay,” Bruckheimer said.

Screenwriter Justin Marks (The Jungle Book) penned the most recent draft of the script, following a draft by Peter Craig (The Town).

Although no new director has been announced yet, Cruise has in recent years developed solid working relationships with both Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation/Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie (who at one time had penned his own Top Gun 2 script) as well as Doug Liman, who called the shots on Edge of Tomorrow and the upcoming Mena.
