Suicide Squad May Have Fury Director David Ayer Lead Them into Battle

19 September 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It seems like Warner Bros. has been trying to get Suicide Squad off the ground for some time, and they may have just found the right fit in Fury director David Ayer.  Now that Warner Bros. has firmed up their Superman v Batman and Justice League plans it appears that they're ready to actively get this one rolling again.  Justin Marks (who is also writing Top Gun 2) was hired sometime ago to pen the script. This could be cool.  Producer Dan Lin has been describing the film for years as sort of a Dirty Dozen in the world of Supervillains (Deadshot, King Shark, Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn), and I think that makes it right up Ayer's alley.  Hit the jump for more on David Ayer directing Suicide Squad. Per THR Warner Bros. actively started looking for a director earlier in the year, making it three years since Justin Marks turned in his script. »

Tom Cruise and ‘Top Gun 2' moving forward with 'Jungle Book' screenwriter

9 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Maverick is gearing back up for one more flight. A sequel to "Top Gun" is once again back on the flight deck, after an extended period of radio silence about the project’s development. Plans for "Top Gun 2" seemingly stalled following the 2012 death of original director Tony Scott. Now, buzz is building once again, with The Hollywood Reporter passing along word that Paramount Pictures and Skydance has hired "The Jungle Book" scribe Justin Marks to rewrite the script. Details on "Top Gun 2" are under wraps, although it’s expected that Tom Cruise will reprise his role as hotshot pilot Maverick. Cruise certainly seemed game to make the movie as recently as 2011, saying in an interview, “If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and »

Long-awaited sequel Top Gun 2 looks to be moving forwards once more, with THR reporting that Paramount is in negotiations with a potential screenwriter. Justin Marks is the writer in question, having recently penned the screenplay for Disney’s update of The Jungle Book, which is currently in production. With Jerry Bruckheimer having recently joined the studio, the wheels appear to be turning again on a project that had stalled since the tragic passing of the late Tony Scott. A screenplay had previously been drafted by Peter...

Crank Up the Kenny Loggins: 'Top Gun 2' Has a New Writer

9 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's been decades in the making, but "Top Gun 2" may be inching closer to actually happening, with the project currently courting a new screenwriter.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Justin Marks -- who penned the screenplay for Disney's upcoming adaptation of "The Jungle Book," directed by Jon Favreau -- is hammering out negotiations to rewrite the script to the long-gestating sequel, set to be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Bruckheimer recently switched over his producing loyalties from Disney to Paramount, which is making the follow-up to the 1986 Tom Cruise flick.

The last time the "Top Gun" sequel script got an overhaul was in 2012, when "The Town" scribe Peter Craig took a crack at it. But that iteration faltered, held up in part by the suicide that year of director Tony Scott, who helmed the original and was set to take the reins on the follow-up, too.

It seems that this time, »

Top Gun 2 to be Scripted by Justin Marks

9 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Justin Marks, the screenwriter behind films such as Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and Jon Favreau's upcoming Jungle Book movie has been hired by Paramount Pictures and Skydance to script Top Gun 2

The Jerry Bruckheimer production has been in slow development for years, but it looks like they are ready to try and move forward. Tom Cruise is set to reprise his role in the film as Maverick, and the story will focus on "the relevance of good old fashioned pilots in today’s high-tech, drone-centric war environment."

Tony Scott was set to direct the film before he passed away in 2012. The film he was developing was written by Peter Craig, who is the same guy who wrote Ben Affleck’s The Town

The only movie that I've seen from Marks is Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, and it was terrible beyond belief. I'm honestly shocked »

Top Gun 2 gets a new writer

9 September 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the passing of original director Tony Scott, it seems that producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Tom Cruise aren’t giving up on their plans for a sequel to Top Gun, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that screenwriter Justin Marks is in talks to work on the script for Top Gun 2.

Should they reach a deal, Marks – whose credits include Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and the upcoming The Jungle Book, Shadow of the Colossus and Fbp: Federal Bureau of Physics – will develop the screenplay originally written by Peter Craig (The Town).

Little is known about the plans for Top Gun 2, although Cruise will be back as Maverick “in a story that aims to show the relevance of good old fashioned pilots in today’s high-tech, drone-centric war environment.”

'Top Gun 2' Gets A New Lease Of Life With 'Street Fighter' Writer

9 September 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

I feel the need, the need to open my copy of Final Draft: a potential sequel to "Top Gun" has been gestating for awhile, with the project officially going into development a few years ago, with Peter Craig ("The Town") penning a script, and original director Tony Scott and star Tom Cruise said to be returning. But the project ground to a halt two years ago when Scott passed away, and little's been heard since. But it looks like something's happening: The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the Skydance and Jerry Bruckheimer have hired a new writer for the project, one Justin Marks. The scribe has been around for awhile, though his only produced feature so far is the rather ignominious "Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li." But he's clearly hot right now, with his screenplay for "Disney's The Jungle Book" going before cameras shortly with Jon Favreau directing. Will he »

‘Top Gun 2′ Moving Forward with ‘Jungle Book’ Screenwriter

9 September 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Top Gun 2 began to take steps away from being one of those belated sequels that’s often discussed yet never actually happens a few years back, but that was before the death of director Tony Scott led to the project being (temporarily) scrapped. Earlier this year, however, producer Jerry Bruckheimer once again started talking up the Top Gun sequel again, not that long after he had set up base camp (read: a first-look deal) with Paramount Pictures intend of Walt Disney Pictures.

THR is reporting that screenwriter Justin Marks is now in negotiations to put together a fresh Top Gun 2 script draft for Paramount, Bruckheimer, and the other producers on the project. Marks, if he signs ...

Top Gun 2 Gets A New Writer

9 September 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It has been in the works for years now, but Top Gun 2 is still chugging along with a new screen writer brought to pen the sequel. The Holly Reporter has revealed Justin Marks (Disney's upcoming The Jungle Book) has been brought in, replacing Peter Craig (The Town, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1) who wrote a previous draft of the script. Nearly thirty years later, I don't see why there should be a sequel in all honesty, but both producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom Cruise have been actively pushing this project forward for the last number of years. Even the originals director Tony Scott was interested in stepping behind the camera for it, before he tragically passed away over two years ago. I have no doubt we will finally see Cruise flight suit up again as Maverick at some point down the line, but will audiences flock to see it? »

‘Top Gun 2′ Set To Take To The Skies With New Writer

8 September 2014 11:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

All set to take our breath away again, Top Gun 2 is one of those belated and long discussed sequels we await with both excitement and trepidation. There’s been talk for years about a sequel in which Maverick (Tom Cruise) returns to tutor the next generation of Top Gun pilots, and the film has finally landed a writer in the form of Justin Marks. Justin Marks has recently written the screenplay for Jon Favreau’s adaptation of Disney’s The Jungle Book, but we must also remind ourselves that he was responsible for Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-li.

Top Gun 2 seemed to have stalled after the death of Tony Scott, the man behind the original film, but it looks as though producer Jerry Bruckheimer is ready to push forward. Some sequels suffer from such a huge gap, but we’ll wait and see how the final film turns out. »

New writer hired for Top Gun 2

8 September 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top Gun 2 gets a helping hand from the writer of the new live action The Jungle Book...

Top Gun 2 remains an active project it seems, with Paramount and Skydance continuing to explore a sequel to the late Tony Scott's 1980s original. With Jerry Bruckheimer producing and Tom Cruise open to returning to one of the films that made his name, the latest news on the project is that a new writer has been hired.

Peter Craig, the man who penned The Town for Ben Affleck, had put the previous draft together. However, Justin Marks - who's delivered the script for Jon Favreau's upcoming live action take on The Jungle Book - is Top Gun 2's new writer. There's no word yet as to who will direct the film.

There's still a long way to go on this one, but as we hear more, we'll pass the news on. »

Jungle Book Reboot Writer Justin Marks to Pen Top Gun 2

8 September 2014 6:22 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

A Top Gun sequel is still in the works, and the writer behind Disney’s upcoming live-action reboot of The Jungle Book (which is set to be directed by Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau) has now been enlisted by Paramount and Skydance to pen the screenplay for the follow-up to the 1980s classic.

Jerry Bruckheimer is producing the movie which will see Top Gun star Tom Cruise reprise the role of ace pilot Maverick in a story which is described as being designed to, “show the relevance of good old fashioned pilots in today’s high-tech, drone-centric war environment.”

Peter Craig (The Town) wrote the previous draft, but that version of Top Gun 2 stalled when director Tony Scott – who helmed the 1986 original – tragically committed suicide in 2012.

Marks’s Jungle Book has been widely praised, and Favreau has managed to assemble a cast which includes Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson and Idris Elba as a result. »

Paramount’s ‘Top Gun 2′ Draws ‘Jungle Book’ Writer

8 September 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Marks is in talks to script “Top Gun 2,” Paramount’s long-in-development sequel to the 1986 Tom Cruise movie.

Jerry Bruckheimer, who moved his first-look deal to Paramount earlier this year, is producing with David Ellison’s Skydance. Skydance’s Dana Goldberg is exec producing.

Should the sequel take flight, Cruise would reprise his iconic role as Maverick.

Marks, who wrote Disney’s upcoming version of “The Jungle Book” that Jon Favreau is directing, would be the first writer to work on the script since Peter Craig (“The Town”) wrote a draft in 2012. He hinted about the new assignment in a Tweet on Sunday.

While you guys watch football, I'm organizing my Top Gun playlist into sequential order of when the songs appeared in the movie. So there.—

Marks is also writing an adapation of “Federal Bureau of Physics” for Warner Bros. He is repped by CAA, »
