Finally, a bit of good news for those in favor of arming Eddie Murphy and unleashing him on unaware California residents. Jerry Bruckheimer, the megaproducer behind the Pirates of the Caribbean films and so many Michael Bay productions, has decided upon his new post-Disney partner, and it is Paramount Pictures. Many giganto-huge blockbusters will surely stem from this new partnership, but the first are to be Top Gun 2 and a Beverly Hills Cop reboot. Both have been talked about for years, but now 26 years later we’re finally on track to see an aged Tom Cruise ejecting himself from a series of aircraft — and yes, according to Deadline, both Cruise and Murphy are set to return to these new installments. It’s the same old story. Movie was popular several decades ago. Now it’s being redone. But the difference here is Bruckheimer, who was a producer and major creative force on both the original Top Gun »

This interview from way back in 2009 with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel is Over The Top. It's Over The Top and Top Gun, Young Guns, and Mighty Joe Young as well. This is just one example of the seven minutes of babble the poor interviewer is subjected to while Rudd and Segel press onward high or just being themselves! Were they on drugs? You be the judge. It's a hilarious interview that you have to watch all the way through! When you're done, watch the next video of them doing fart impressions during another interview.

Celebrity break-ups are something of a guilty pleasure to look in on, and one of this years’s biggest separations was that of long-term couple Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Studios. In the wake of The Lone Ranger bombing spectacularly at the box office, it was announced that Bruckheimer and Disney would be going their separate ways after 20 years in business.
Bruckheimer’s Disney legacy includes the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which has been extremely lucrative for the company so far in a trend that seems set to continue when Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is released in 2016. Bruckheimer has no doubt been ...

Jerry Bruckheimer has finalized a new three-year first-look deal with Paramount Pictures, with the sequels Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 4 among the first projects he plans on getting off the ground. We reported in September that the producer is not renewing his deal with Disney, which expires next year. His deal with Paramount begins in April 2014.
Top Gun 2 has been in development for quite some time, but we haven't heard anything about the sequel since director Tony Scott committed suicide last August. Tom Cruise is attached to star, reprising his role as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell from the original Top Gun. Peter Craig (The Town) signed on to write the script last March, but it isn't known if he is still involved.
Jerry Bruckheimer’s move from Disney to Paramount is now official. The prolific producer and Disney decided to part ways after the box office bust of this summer’s The Lone Ranger, on which Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski argued successfully for a budget north of $200 million. Paramount officially announced today that Bruckheimer has finalized a three-year first-look deal with the studio set to begin next April, returning him to the home where he got his start as the producer of films like Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop, and Days of Thunder. Per Deadline, Bruckheimer’s first film back at Paramount will be the long-developing Beverly Hills Cop 4, which Brett Ratner will direct after he finishes up Hercules. Eddie Murphy is reprising his role and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol scribes Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are penning the screenplay. Additionally, the Top Gun sequel is another priority for the studio, »

Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer have reached a three-year, first-look agreement for theatrical films that will begin in April 2014, the new partners said Friday. TheWrap broke the news this week that a deal between Bruckheimer and Paramount was close to being finalized.

Among those decade-defining blockbusters were “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Flashdance.” In fact, Bruckheimer’s initial projects at his new home should leave him in a nostalgic frame of mind.

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.

Back in September, we learned that mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer and The Walt Disney Company were ending their longtime first-look deal, letting the current contract expire in 2014. This has left Bruckheimer and his production banner looking for a new home, and THR has word that he might end up going back to the source of his early success with Paramount Pictures. Back in the 80s, Bruckheimer found great success with hits like Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop (which spawned a franchise that might have a new sequel on the way) and Flashdance, and it would be nice if he returned to more adult, gritty fare there. Bruckheimer's departure from Disney came after the box office bomb that was The Lone Ranger, and the producer has been struggling lately to deliver hits for Disney. Despite the box office success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, the series seems to have lost its life lately. »

As acting deputy secretary of defence, Fox, played by Kelly McGillis in the 80s blockbuster, is a maverick in her own right
Name: Christine Fox.
Age: You haven't got the clearance for that information, but let's say late 50s.
Clearance? Who is she? She's America's brand-new acting deputy secretary of defence.
Wow. What is that, exactly? It's the highest rank ever held by a woman at the Pentagon.
So is she, like, a general or something? No, she's a civilian, and the former director of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation at the Department of Defence. She's basically a budget expert.
Does she not have any stars, or medals, or a gun? No. She evaluates Us defence objectives in the light of resource constraints.
She does the cuts, you mean. Well, yes, but she has decades of experience and a master's degree in applied mathematics
No offence, but she sounds boring. »
One of the best-kept secrets on television right now is FX’s achingly funny, ruthlessly witty spy satire Archer, which will return for a fifth season of thirteen episodes next month. The show has consistently surprised and delighted with state-of-the-art animation, hilarious plot-lines and inspired guest actors (check out season 3′s “The Man from Jupiter,” featuring Burt Reynolds, if you don’t believe me).
Now, FX is turning up the heat on Archer‘s publicity campaign with a terrific poster inspired by Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, which finds the Isis gang going undercover beachside in what looks like Miami.
Check it out below:
Where to start with this awesome poster? How about a visibly pregnant Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler)? The character announced that she was expecting during the “Sea Tunt” season 4 finale, so it looks like a small time-jump is in order for season 5. Meanwhile, Ray (Adam Reed) appears »
