'Top Gun 2' Details Tease Maverick Vs. Drones Storyline

15 April 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

‘Top Gun 2′ Details from Jerry Bruckheimer Tease Maverick vs. Drones Story

15 April 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

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 ...

Maverick will face off against drones in 'Top Gun 2'

2 April 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(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. »

Top Gun 2: Will Drones Be Competing Against Tom Cruise in Half-Naked Beach Volleyball?

2 April 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

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, »

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer talks about the plot for Top Gun 2

1 April 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.

Via: The Huffington Post

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."

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,

Jerry Bruckheimer Confirms Top Gun 2 Still In The Works, Confirms Drone Plot

1 April 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

'Top Gun 2' With Drones? No, This Is Not an April Fools' Day Joke.

1 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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 »

Noah Wins Weekend, Chronicle & Top Gun Sequels in the Works, Chris Evans Passes the (Human) Torch, New Sin City 2 Stills

1 April 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

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.

Jerry Bruckheimer’s Top Gun 2 Involves Drones

31 March 2014 8:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

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. »

Jerry Bruckheimer Talks Top Gun 2's Plot

31 March 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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.

Jerry Bruckheimer Drops Some Top Gun 2 Plot Details

31 March 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 BruckheimerTop 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. »

Maverick vs. Drones in 'Top Gun 2'c

31 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

to pgunSo Jerry Bruckheimer spoke with the Huffington Post about Top Gun 2, which seemed to have finally found some traction before director Tony Scott's suicide in 2012. Since then there have been rumblings but nothing concrete. Now Bruckheimer reveals the concept is to say that in a new era of unmanned drones pilots are still necessary. "The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of dronesc Tom Cruise as Maverick 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." Personally, Top Gun was never really about real world situations so the whole drone idea seems a little above what this possible franchise is all about. Then again, »

Jerry Bruckheimer Teases Plot Of 'Top Gun 2'

31 March 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In development for years and years, and seemingly stalled after the sad passing of Tony Scott in 2012, late last year Paramount revealed "Top Gun 2" was back on at the studio. There's been little in the way of other details about the movie; the only thing we know was that a couple years back, "The Town" scribe Peter Craig was hired to draft a script. But at the very least, it seems like a basic storyline or idea has been figured out, and Jerry Bruckheimer has sorta spilled the beans.  Chatting with Huffington Post, Bruckheimer revealed a logline of sorts for the sequel, one tat brings a contemporary twist to the proceedings. “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," the producer explained. "It’s just getting to the starting place. »

If you’ve spent the last eighteen years or so pining for more Maverick, well it looks like you might still be in luck. We’ve had rumours circulating about a Top Gun sequel for a while now, and according to one of the original movie producers, Jerry Bruckheimer, the follow up’s plot is as modern and relevant as ever. Whilst speaking about his new book, Bruckheimer explains:

We’ve been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we’re getting closer and closer.

After a failed attempt by Tom Cruise and Don Simpson to develop the plot, progress was slowed by original director Tony Scott’s death in 2012. But it now looks like the project is back on track. Luckily Scott had done enough work with the plot before he died, which centres on drone aircraft. Will there still be a need for pilots, »

Top Gun 2 "getting closer and closer"

News Simon Brew 31 Mar 2014 - 06:59

There's a story for Top Gun 2 in place. And Jerry Bruckheimer reveals that the project is making progress...

Before his death in 2012, one of the projects that director Tony Scott was developing was a sequel to his 1986 megahit, Top Gun. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer was working on the film too, and Tom Cruise was set to reprise his role of Maverick.

The tragic death of Scott in 2012 did seem to have ended the project at one stage, but it now seems clear that both Cruise and Bruckheimer are keen to press ahead. Bruckheimer has given the latest update on the film in an interview with The Huffington Post, where he says that "we've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years and I think we're getting closer and closer".

As for the concept of the film, Bruckheimer revealed that it asks the question »
