"[Marks] has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today," Collider quotes Ellison as saying.
"It is very much a world we live in today where it's drone technology and fifth generation fighters... it's really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today."
Speaking about leading star Cruise, Ellison said: "There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is »
One of the main draws of a Mission: Impossible movie has become the insane stunts that Tom Cruise performs himself. For the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, for instance, the 52-year-old actor can be seen hanging on to the side of an airplane as it takes off, and he can be seen holding his breath for a dangerous amount of time while performing an underwater task, and that's really him hanging on to the plane and that's really him going without oxygen for six minutes. It's therefore incredible that these movies can get insurance. After all, if somehow something went wrong and Cruise died attempting the stunt, the production would shut down, the sequel would never be released and the insurance company would have to cover hundreds of...

Micro: Steven Spielberg will help shepherd Micro, the final work by author and filmmaker Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), to the big screen via DreamWorks Studios. Crichton died in 2008 before finishing the novel, which was completed by Richard Preston and published in 2011; it concerns graduate students in Hawaii who "find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rainforest, with nothing but their wits and scientific expertise to protect them." [The Wrap] Top Gun 2: Long in development, a sequel to 1986's Top Gun is currently in the sciptwriting stage, but producer David Ellison recently teased: "There is no Top Gun without Maverick," the role played by Tom Cruise in the original. Ellison also acknowledged today's drone technology...

Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »

Every once in a while the IMAX release of one film will provide an opportunity to do promotion for another. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, for instance, featured a preview of footage from The Dark Knight Rises when the Tom Cruise thriller came to IMAX theaters in December 2011. Four years later, a new Mission: […]

The footage will run exclusively at the Imax sites for a month prior to the July 31 opening of Tom Cruise actioner.
“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” received a strong response from exhibitors in April at CinemaCon when Cruise presented behind-the-scenes footage of himself hanging off the side of an Airbus A400M as it soared 5,000 feet in the air.
“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” is a Cruise/Bad Robot Production directed by Christopher McQuarrie, with a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie, and story by Christopher McQuarrie and Drew Pearce. It also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Alec Baldwin.

If you can’t wait for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, you’lll have an opportunity to see five minutes of the film nearly a month early—and on the big screen, no less. Paramount Pictures announced today that a five-minute sneak peek of the fifth Mission: Impossible film will debut exclusively in front of North American IMAX screenings of Terminator Genisys, with screenings beginning at 7pm on June 30th. Directed and co-written by Jack Reacher helmer Christopher McQuarrie, Rogue Nation finds Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and his Imf team disbanded and out in the cold, as a new threat surfaces in the form of a network of special agents called the Syndicate. While the movie’s release was pushed up five months not so long ago, during Steve’s interview with Skydance Productions executives David Ellison and Dana Goldberg, they revealed that Rogue Nation’s first test screening scored »

There’s a vast and growing list of prominent gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender media and entertainment figures — just don’t count movie stars among them.
Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Caitlyn Jenner and Neil Patrick Harris have kicked open the closet door with little to no damage to their careers. In some cases, they’ve found themselves more in demand after revealing their sexual preferences or gender identification.
Yet there’s one glass ceiling that remains stubbornly resistant to cracks.
No A-list film actor has yet to come out publicly while at the pinnacle of his or her career. Sure, Jodie Foster gave an elliptical Golden Globes speech about being a lesbian, and out actors Ian McKellen and Zachary Quinto helped anchor the “X-Men” and “Lord of the Rings” series, and the rebooted “Star Trek” films, respectively. Yet despite their prodigious talents, none of them has the power to »

The script for a long-in-the-works Top Gun sequel will find Tom Cruise's Maverick character hunting down drones, according to comments Skydance Productions CEO David Ellison made while doing press in Berlin for the latest Terminator (via Collider).
"It is very much a world we live in today where it's drone technology, and fifth-generation fighters are really what the United States Navy is calling the last man-made fighter that we're actually going to produce, so it's really [about] exploring the 'end of an era' of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today, »
The long-mooted sequel to 80s blockbuster Top Gun will explore the culture clash between old school aviation and the new generation of unmanned drones, according to the film’s producer.

"Top Gun 2" feels no need for speed. The original came out in May 1986 and we've been talking about a sequel for years. But it sounds like stuff is finally in motion on Maverick's (Tom Cruise) second round, with Skydance CEO David Ellison giving Collider an update during press day for "Terminator Genisys" in Berlin.
Way back in 2010, Tony Scott was being considered to direct, with Christopher McQuarrie charged with writing the script. Sadly, much has changed -- Scott died in 2012 and it sounds like McQuarrie is no longer on board for the script. Here's the latest from Ellison:
Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today. 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. »

Top Gun 2 will definitely happen, and Tom Cruise will return to one of his most famous roles of Maverick. The original movie, which is directed by the late, great Tony Scott is 30 years old next year, and at their Berlin press conference for the upcoming Terminator Genisys, which opens on Friday, Skydance‘s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg were asked about Top Gun 2. Skydance will produce the sequel, along with Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the fantastic original.
David Ellison said: “Absolutely. I started flying aerobatics when I was thirteen years old, actually me and my dad took my first lesson on my thirteenth birthday. By the time I was seventeen, I was flying air »

New details about the long-awaited (and development-cursed) Top Gun 2 have emerged, via Collider. At a Terminator Genisys press-day interview in Berlin, Skydance CEO David Ellison recently revealed that the overdue sequel is in the process of being written and that Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Maverick — but in the present, incorporating the use of real time to bridge the gap from the first film. "Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what fighter pilots in the Navy [have] turned into today," Ellison said. "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." Ellison added that the movie will unspool — when it finally comes out — in theaters in IMAX and 3-D. And here's what that movie will »

America Olivo, Sean Harris, Jingchu Zhang and Simon McBurney round out the supporting cast in this upcoming action-thriller.
Anghus Houvouras with the five best film franchises…
As we continue to examine the state of Hollywood’s biggest franchises, it’s time to dole out a little love. We’ve looked at the Five Worst Film Franchises and Five Film Franchises on the Fence. It’s time for the Five Best Film Franchises. Yes, there are franchises that deserve love. Movie series that consistently entertain and deliver at the box office. Films that make the concept of franchises more palatable, even when studios are trying to crap garbage like G.I. Joe: Retaliation down you’re throat.
Once again, we are only considering franchises that have films actively in production with two or more installments previously produced.
With that in mind… here’s the best of the best:
1. James Bond
The longest film franchise is still the best. Super-Spy James Bond has been entertaining audiences since the 1960’s with his alcohol fueled sexual exploits. »

It appears Tom Cruise's character Maverick's need for speed will be fulfilled once again in Top Gun 2. Murmurings of a sequel to the hit 1986 film, which featured the actor is his breakout role as a handsome, badass fighter pilot, began around 2010. Cruise was attached to the project but the extent of his participation was not made clear. In 2012, he and Top Gun director Tony Scott scouted locations for the sequel. In August of that year, Scott died at age 68. Co-producer and Skydance CEO David Ellison, who is also a pilot, talked about the movie again at a press event for his latest movie, Terminator Genisys, Collider reported on Friday. "Justin »
