Movie bosses are in talks to bring Tom Cruise (http://www.starpulse.com/Actors/Cruise,_Tom/) back for a sequel to his hit 1986 movie Top Gun (http://www.starpulse.com/Movies/Top_Gun/).

The original film's producer, Jerry Bruckheimer (http://www.starpulse.com/Notables/Bruckheimer,_Jerry/), has confirmed he's been approached with plans to resurrect Cruise's character, Lieutenant Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell, for a follow-up to the naval aviation drama. Bruckheimer admits movie executives have "kicked around some ideas" but they are still a long way from giving the project the green light.

He tells MTV.com, "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."

Top Gun is the latest in a long line of popular movies which are rumored to be heading back to the big screen, including Jurassic Park (http://www.starpulse.com/Movies/Jurassic_Park/) and Ghostbusters (http://www.starpulse.com/Movies/Ghostbusters/).

heh.....one part of me would love to see it honestly.....especially if they brought back all the original cast members.....who are now all either overweight, balding, greybeards, and just plain old....except for Cruise, who looks great for his age.

So I guess Maverick would be a Captain or an Admiral by now??

The other part of me sees a repeat of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull...

I wasn't a big fan of the first one either. I'm not much of a Cruise fan. I liked Risky Business, but after that there have only been a few Cruise movies that he doesn't ruin for me.

I think that a Top Gun sequel, if done correctly, would be bad ass.

Maverick was a great character. He was a top flight, cocky ass pilot with an attitude. He wanted to win every time he did anything, much like James T. Kirk (even though his choice in women sucked).

They could set him up in a myriad of situations, from instructor to admiral to savior. There are all kinds of possibilities for the character and Tom Cruise is still a great and captivating actor in much of the world.

If *I* were producing this film, I'd bring in Abrams, Lindelof and Cuse (or Orci & Kurtzman), then do a re-write with Neal Purvis and Paul Haggis. I'd hire a director like Paul Greengrass and make this a tense, taut, thriller.

But that's just me. :D

Dane, question for you:
I see an awful lot of remakes out of Hollywood lately. Am I just getting older or are there more remakes than usual? If so do you have any thoughts as to why that might be?

Dane, question for you:

It's due to finances.

Major studios and productions companies generally don't finance their own films (especially the $100 million plus variety). DVD sales, which used to account to as much as twice the box office take for hit movies are down more than 20% due to services like Netflix, Redbox and of course, piracy.

So, just like in all other aspects of life, if you're going to a bank asking for a loan, that bank wants to make sure that they're get their money back and not take on a loss. And as the economy has slowed down and banks have tightened their belts, it's become increasing difficult to find funding (even though it's beginning to loosen up a bit).

So with all of that said, it's easier to sell a bank on a remake than it is an original script. Which is why you'll see Alien, Footloose, Superman, Real Genius, a Spidey reboot, Peter Berg's $200 million dollar "Battleship", and more in the coming years.

Actually, it's being done.

First, they're doing a film adaptation of the Broadway play, "Wicked" which is about how the Wicked Witch of the East became that way.

They're doing a "prequel" starring Robert Downey, Jr. as Oz and how he came to the Land.

Then, they'll be a full-on remake of Wizard.

I wonder if they remake the beach volleyball scene??

Actually, having just seen Cruise in "Knight and Day", he's in really good shape. Back then, he was just a skinny average-looking kid; now, he's an older guy who actually works at it.

As for the film... it was one of the many things from my childhood and teens that, when I saw it, I thought it was great, and now when I see it, I realize how utterly stupid it was. If they remade it, they'd have to totally change the whole timbre of the film. If they remade it as a dark, violent, and realistic film, maybe it would work. If they let Bruckheimer near it, not so sure. Despite his touch of gold, it would come across more like "Knight and Day".

I also believe I read that Drew Barrymore was trying to get her own Oz "sequel" going.

Not to mention the Tin Man series that aired on Sci-fi (last year? two years ago?).

Like Dane said..its got potential for sure. Your right, it would have to be a whole lot more realistic than the original. Times and audiences have changed.

Bruckheimer is capable. He did produce Black Hawk Down.

So, like, the first "Top Gun" wasn't gay enough????

Now in the sequel, Pete Mitchell and Iceman are "life partners" and run a Bed, Bath and Beyond in El Segundo. Iceman is too fat to fly, but croches a nice scarf for Pete to wear as he flys AWACS planes over Pakistan, after he's called into active service by his commander L. Don Nubber, California Air National Reserve Guard honcho. Eventually, Pete leaves Iceman for L. Don, and Iceman eats himself to death, purging on Devil Dogs and Dove Bars.

The Kelly McGillis character now drives an over the road semi truck, and is married to Sandra Bernhart, who shares the cross country driving with her as they both wear flannel and Old Spice when they eat meat loaf at a truck stop in El Centro. They turn to the dark side, smuggling would be terrorists across the Arizona-Mexico border. They hide the terrorists in a tractor trailer full of cucumbers.

Fred Phelps co-stars as Osama Bin Laden.

I disagree.

Outside of Kilmer, Cruise and Edwards, the rest were unimportant.

If Cruise is the "Man" in the sequel, there are plenty of actors in their mid-to-late 20's who could fill the roles successfully.

He's already lined up to play Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan in several upcoming features and is doing a movie with Clooney. As long as he stays diversified in his roles, he won't be typecast.

But the reason I brought him up is that two years ago, he was a virtual nobody, which contradicts the assertion that there isn't enough "young" talent in Hollywood to pull off a Top Gun sequel.

It's a great story that can be re-told to a new generation.

They're being very cautious with the property, which is a good sign.

They might as well get Shia Labouf since he's single handidly ruined two 80's movie franchises with his shitty acting.

A Footloose remake? JFC:shake:

At least they got a decent director to do it. Craig Brewer made Hustle and Flow which i thought was really good.


I wonder if it will have the same basic premise as the original? A town where dancing is not allowed?? I thought that was a stretch even for the 80's...

Here's the thing about Top Gun 2, though, .... they shouldn't make it.

Probably not. Its definately a product of its time. The tone of thing thing is what makes it iconic, but it couldnt be done today without coming off as cheesy.

I thought it was based off of a real town? I think I read an article the other day too that a town in some midwest town banned dancing. for realz.
