Top Gun 2

A sequel to Tom Cruise-starring iconic '80s film Top Gun is on the cards with the star reprising his role.

 

It was the film that made Cruise an overnight sex symbol with his role as rookie pilot Maverick in 1986.

 

"The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor - and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilot," a source told The Sun.

 

It's certainly a change of tune from the star as he didn't want to be in a sequel shortly after the first film. At the time he priced himself out of starring in one with an amount of money deemed "unaffordable" by the studio.

 

There had been a script written for Top Gun 2 back then which would have seen Maverick as an instructor at the academy with a cocky female, not unlike himself as a younger man, joining the team. Whether they will keep that story for the newly planned follow up remains to be seen.

 

The original film also introduced Val Kilmer as Ice Man and featured Kelly McGillis as Cruise's love interest.

 

:doh:

You lot might call me a chocolate doughnut maker but I love Top Gun!!  :coolsmiley:

 

Would be all for a sequel but the only bit i dont like is the "cocky female pilot" bit.

 

There should obviously be a bint in the film who gets pounded but please, leave the flying to the flyboys!

Wonder if he can find a way to involve some Scientology in it.

 

That's the only reason I want to see it. They'll replace the homosexuality with Scientology bullshit.

I will see this if and only if they bring back Goose.  And no cheesy flashback sequences either. 

 

 

Are we talking Top Gun, or Mad Max?

Worth a look for the dogfight cinematography if nothing else, too - that stuff was done superbly.

Agree.

 

 

 

heres a possible story line for the sequel.

 

An aging Maverick(Cruise) is the grizzled instructor at the Top gun  flight academy, pushing the top 1% of all Naval aviators to the limits of their skills and helping churn out some of the most decorated pilots in the world.

Then along comes anew hotshot rookie pilot(Katey Holmes) who see's the younger Maverick as her hero often pulling similar stunts and reckless flying such as "buzzing the tower"

After 1 such stunt results in the death of a fellow student and friend Maverick takes it upon himself to comfort and train the hot young pilot using the methods of scientlogy.

Yeah, Imagine how good the footage of the planes would be in this new movie if done properly with no CGI crap?

 

They would obviously be flying F-22's this time instead of F-14's, and a possible story line could involve flying over Iraq where they accidentally stray into Iranian airspace and have a stand off with the Iranian airforce.

 

Maybe thats too sensitive an issue though?

If any pilot acted like a cock as in the Top Gun movie they'd be kicked out of the USAF or any other Airforce from around the world.

 

 

 

considering they lost a bunch of nuclear tipped missiles recently.................
