From filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Deliver Us From Evil tells the story of the real-life series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes that police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) began investigating in New York.

He also talked about what it will take »

Despite the fact he’s now in his 70s, super producer Jerry Bruckheimer is showing little signs of slowing down and settling into retirement, having just signed a new three-year first-look deal with Paramount Pictures. During an interview with Bloomberg, Bruckheimer has offered updates on three projects he has in development – the long-rumoured Top Gun 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 4, as well as Disney’s planned Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales:
On Top Gun 2: “Technology has changed obviously since we made the first one. So I think we’re going to take advantage of what the world is like today, with the drones kinda taking over a lot of our wars today, but is the pilot obsolete? Those jet jockeys, are they gone now? No, I don’t think so, I think they’re going to be around for quite a while. »

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is juggling, not for the first time, a plate of sequels at the moment. Top Gun 2 is gradually edging forward, but there's also the small matter of Beverly Hills Cop 4 and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5.
"We're in the process of getting the script finished", Bruckheimer said. "Paramount is very excited about making it. Eddie's very excited. Brett Ratner's excited about doing it. So I think we're moving forward. Hopefully we'll start the end of summer, beginning of fall, and get rolling on it. »
After years of speculation and development, we reported in December that the long-awaited sequel Top Gun 2 is finally moving forward at Paramount, following producer Jerry Bruckheimer signing a new first-look deal with the studio after his 20-year partnership with Disney came to an end. In a new interview with Bloomberg, the producer was asked if Tom Cruise's Pete "Maverick" Mitchell will be squaring off against drone technology in this sequel, revealing that he wants to showcase both traditional and drone pilots.
"Technology has changed, obviously, since we made the first one. So I think we're going to take advantage of what the world is like today with the drones really taking over in a lot of our wars. Is the pilot obsolete? Are those guys, those jet jockeys, are they gone from now? No I don't think so...because you still have to make quick decisions. We're hopefully going to highlight both worlds. »
Sequels to famous 1980s titles like The Goonies, Beetlejuice, and Top Gun have been rumored many times over the years since the original films released by now, yet of late Hollywood’s fixation on nostalgia for that decade has signaled that one or more of these belated followups may, at long last, actually get made. Case in point: just a week ago, reports emerged that Warner Bros. is currently fast-tracking Goonies 2, while a couple months back Michael Keaton confirmed that he and director Tim Burton have seriously discussed making a second movie featuring “The Ghost with the Most.”
For a while, Top Gun 2 looked like it would be the ...

(Cbr) If you can hear the faint strains of Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone,” that’s because "Top Gun 2" is back in the works. “We’ve been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we’re getting closer and closer,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer told The Huffington Post. The sequel to the 1986 action drama gained steam in 2012 with the original gang of Bruckheimer, star Tom Cruise and director Tony Scott reuniting for a script by "Thor" screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zach Stentz. However, any momentum ended following Scott’s August 2012 suicide. “Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn’t succeed,” Bruckheimer said. “[Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn’t succeed. Now we’re back at it.” He even delved into some of the themes of "Top Gun 2", offering that, “The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. »

Famed mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently stopped by HuffPost Live to talk about the proposed concept for Top Gun 2. "The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? [Tom] Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. They're here to stay," Bruckheimer said. "It's just getting to the starting place. Fortunately for Tom, he's very busy, so you have to find a slot he can fit into and get a budget that Paramount feels they can make the picture." When you get right down to it, in a decade that was largely defined by popcorn entertainment, a case can be made that Top Gun was the best popcorn movie of them all. It featured an up-and-coming Tom Cruise in what would become the movie that officially skyrocketed his superstardom, it put mega-producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson (no relation to Smells Like Screen Spirit's Managing Editor) on the map, »

Before the death of director Tony Scott back in 2012, it finally seemed that the long-rumoured sequel to the 1986 blockbuster Top Gun was finally starting to move forward, with leading man Tom Cruise all set to reprise his role as ace pilot Maverick. Last year, Jerry Bruckheimer suggested that development on Top Gun 2 would continue despite Scott's passing, and now the producer has suggested the sequel is "getting closer and closer", as well as opening up a little about his plans for the plot.
"We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer," Bruckheimer tells The Huffington Post. "Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. [Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it. The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to »

While promoting his book, Jerry Bruckheimer: When Lightning Strikes, Four Decades of Filmmaking, the mega producer reveals some information about Top Gun 2. First of all, the movie is still in the process of moving forward.
"We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer."
Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. [Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it."
The first movie was released 28 years ago, and a lot has changed since then. The sequel will obviously reflect what is going on in today's Modern Warfare. The producer goes on to explain the basic plot of the film saying,
"The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. They're here to stay. »

Despite the passing of Tony Scott in 2012, Top Gun 2 somehow remains a priority for producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The follow-up to the 1986 air-fighting drama was a touchstone of the era, which is to say that it.s dated and no one is really expecting or looking for a follow-up. But the film did launch Tom Cruise (Legend) into the stratosphere, and Bruckheimer is looking to get the plane back in the air, perhaps as an honor to Scott, who directed the original. And now, the new Top Gun has a hook. Speaking with The Huffington Post as he promoted his new book When Lightning Strikes: Four Decades Of Filmmaking (that absolutely sounds like a Bruckheimer memoir), he claimed that they.ve cracked this elusive code. "The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? Cruise is going to show them that they.re not obsolete. They.re here »
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is bound and determined to bring "Top Gun 2" to life, and he won't rest until we're all back in the danger zone with Tom Cruise. Bruckheimer was on HuffPost Live to discuss his bio, "Jerry Bruckheimer: When Lightning Strikes, Four Decades of Filmmaking," and naturally the conversation turned to his nearly 30-year war of attrition to make a sequel about hot-to-trot Navy pilots.
Of course, technology -- and the way we wage war -- has changed a whole lot since Iceman and Goose and Maverick were flashing their toothy smiles, so the real question was how to update it for the 21st century.
"Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. [Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it. Tony Scott finally found a way in to do this, and we were on »

Box Office Based on the Bible or not, Noah was a big draw for moviegoers this past weekend, dominating the box office with a $43.7 million debut, the fourth highest of 2014. The movie was not only a coup for Paramount, but for title star Russell Crowe and director Darren Aronofsky: Noah is the highest opening ever for a Crowe-led movie and it earned more than Aronofsky's first movie movies put together!
Divergent took second, adding $25.6 million to its total, which nears the $100 million mark. Divergent actually had more staying power than similar Ya movies, dropping 53% in week two versus, e.g., The Hunger Games, which dropped 62% in its second week in theaters. Muppets Most Wanted took third with $11.3 million, while Mr. Peabody & Sherman came in fourth with $9 million. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opens this week in the States, opened internationally to an impressive $75.2 million.

Thirty years on and without original director Tony Scott, Jerry Bruckheimer's desire to make a Top Gun sequel has not changed. Naval fighter weapons technology has changed a lot, however, so Top Gun 2 is going to have both Tom Cruise and drones. "The concept is basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones? Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. The pilots are here to stay. That's the concept of it," the producer told HuffPo while promoting his book Jerry Bruckheimer: When Lightning Strikes, Four Decades of Filmmaking. At least it will be significantly less sad when Goose dies this time around, since he'll just be a bunch of wires shaped like Anthony Edwards or something. »

With Tom Cruise gracing the cover of the magazine and the man himself accepting the Legend Of Our Lifetime award at the Jameson Empire Awards on Sunday night, it seems somehow fitting to bring word of developments on a sequel to one of his most famous movies. According to producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the pieces are slowly falling into place for Top Gun 2.The sequel, which had been idling on the development runway waiting for take-off, was once more grounded by the untimely death of director Tony Scott. As Bruckheimer tells it, Scott had gotten closer than anyone to figuring out what the new movie should be about."We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer," Bruckheimer told The Huffington Post’s Live show. "Don Simpson and I tried to develop something; we didn't succeed. Tom Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, »
Maverick. Iceman. Goose. Kenny Loggins. They all became household names in the 1980s thanks to a little movie called Top Gun. Produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, Top Gun grossed an obscene amount of money by making the Navy look both totally cool and vaguely homoerotic. But decades later, when ace fighter pilots have been replaced by decidedly less cool unmanned aerial drones, is the highway to the danger zone closed for good? Bruckheimer doesn’t think so. In fact, he’s got the pedal to the floor and he’s speeding down the commuter lane with Top Gun 2 in his passenger seat.
It’s been almost a year since we’ve last seen assurances from Bruckheimer that Top Gun would in fact reappear to take our breaths away. Shortly thereafter we also got word from Val Kilmer that he’s all oiled up and ready to go. »
