Top Gun 2

Surprised there isn't already a thread for this.

Yes you read that right, Top Gun 2 is in development. WTF! Even more amazing is that Tom Cruise has already signed up for it.

To be honest it sounds dull as hell.

Here's one from 2008.

That DS article is the first one I've seen that says Cruise is definitely in.

Quote:
"There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick."
What does that even mean? Who else would he be playing?


Love the original, but frankly, without Tony Scott behind the wheel, I don't really care.

Hope they don't try & squeeze Kilmer back into his uniform...

At least it's not a reboot /sarcasm.

seems it going to be brought into the 21st century and be about battling drones, with the art of dogfighting dying/dead. i agree with the above comment - not the most exciting sounding synopsis.

i would have thought that tom cruise would play maverick as an instructor at top gun (as that's where the original left off). as for "maverick in it with maverick playing maverick", i think that was meant as yes, the character maverick is in it, and it will be played by the only person who could possibly play maverick: tom cruise.

it's welcome-ish news to me. top gun is heavily clichéd and very much of its time but it still gets a regular test drive in my BD player (especially for showing off the KEFs during the opening sequence on the aircraft carrier). however, i'll remain cautious.

Not sure I want to see this! The original is my all time favorite film since I first saw it when I was a nipper!

A follow on 30 years later without the original music doesn't bode well.

Yay! Another far-too-late sequel no-one wanted or asked for!
And drones, how very exciting.
I guess there's no hope of Kelly McGillis coming back? I mean Maverick and Charlie are still together, right? Cinema needs more representations of older lesbian couples.

Where as that was never actually a line from the movie, but one misquoted by tarantino, there are plenty to choose from including:

Hey man we could of had him! Hey we could of had him man!

I was invaded!

Move your ass get up here! I'm engaged!

Woods been hit! Woods been hit, ****, Woods been hit!

Ok Wood I'm taking the lead

You up for this one Maverick?

No, no, no - there's two O's in Goose boys!

Okay Mav, lets turn and burn!

We're in his Jet Wash!

He's going vertical, then so am I!

Get your butts above the hard deck.

I'm not going to sit here and blow sunshine up your ass.

******** ten minutes! This thing will be over in two minutes - get on it!

Hard deck my ass, we nailed that son of a bitch!

Splash that sucker, yeah!

'Goose whose butt did you kiss to get in here?'... 'The list is long but distinguished'

"You can be my wingman anytime".... "********, you can be mine"

I want somebody's butt, I want it now, I've had it!

And the killer line:

God it that's twice, I want some BUTTS!!!

and of course, the everso hetero volleyball scene....

It wasnt just wall to wall cock,balls and arse lines in Top Gun. I only ever watched it for the aerial scenes and that was all bookmarked on the R1 DVD so you never have to watch the film again.

Yep, looks like exactly what I wanted. The fighter jet footage looks amazing.

If that is 100% CGI free, then count me in!

Has it been confirmed that Cruise is actually flying his Jet or is there a genuine pilot, hidden off-camera?

It wouldn't surprise me if the answer is the former...

That trailer looks phenomenal. Can't wait.

Do they have two seat, trainer versions of those jets? That's what I'm thinking is going on...
