Five Directors Who Could Direct ‘Top Gun 2’

7 July 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As you may have determined, there will be a Top Gun sequel at some point in the very near future. Jerry Bruckheimer teased an image with Tom Cruise a little while ago via his Twitter account, but since then things have gone a little bit quiet.

Cruise is currently shooting The Mummy for Universal and then he’ll reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in a sixth Mission: Impossible movie for Paramount. In between he’ll hit the road to promote the Jack Reacher sequel and then, hopefully, we hope he’ll turn his attention to Top Gun 2 – after all, the original film is thirty years old next year.

What we haven’t considered is who will direct it. As we all know, Tony Scott sadly passed away a couple of years ago, and his legendary shoes are going to be really difficult to fill.

Booster Gold Solo Movie Happening with Thor Writer?

11 May 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, a new report surfaced claiming Warner Bros. is expanding their DC Extended Universe even more, with a new Blue Beetle and Booster Gold movie. That rumor claimed Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Greg Berlanti will direct from a script by Zak Penn (The Avengers). We haven't heard anything concrete about this project since then, but today we have a new report that claims another writer has been brought on, Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor, Power Rangers, The Flash).

Zack Stentz recently worked with Greg Berlanti writing last night's episode of The Flash, which was directed by Kevin Smith. Earlier this week, the director brought Zack Stentz on to his Fat Man on Batman podcast, where the writer made a few interesting comments about working on another DC project, in collaboration with Greg Berlanti. A report from Birth.Movies.Death claims that all »

17 movie sequels that are stuck in development hell

Meet the films sequels that might not be dead, but are certainly stuck in some kind of limbo...

Every now and then, a sequel that appears to have been in the cooker for a while – Zoolander 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Anchorman 2 – finally escapes into the wild. But the journey to the screen can be a very lengthy one, and this little lot are still trying to find their way to your local multiplex…

Dick Tracy 2

Disney gambled hard on bringing Dick Tracy to the screen in the summer of 1990, backing the vision of director and star Warren Beatty, and hoping to ape the success that Warner Bros had enjoyed the summer before with Batman. Yet whilst Dick Tracy hit, it didn’t hit too hard. The studio adjusted its-then blockbuster strategy accordingly, and it wouldn’t really be until it got to the likes of »

The Jungle Book review: ” A wild, wonderful and welcome return”

6 April 2016 3:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Jungle Book review: Jon Favreau nails it with this visually stunning revival of perhaps Disney’s greatest movie.

The Jungle Book review by Paul Heath. Jon Favreau revisits Disney’s 1960s classic animated movie, and of course Rudyard Kipling’s wonderful books, and brings it bang up to date for this live-action/ CGI-animated fare that is a wonderful, wild spectacle that pleases from the off.

Re-imagining an animated classic, especially one that is lauded as being one of he best in Disney’s huge, applauded back-catalogue is quite a task to under-take, but under-take it is just what actor turned celebrated film-maker Jon Favreau has done with the is epic 2016 version. 1967’s The Jungle Book was one of the last movies that Walt Disney personally worked on. Released just ten months after his death, the film was described as near-perfect, and was received exceptionally by critics and audiences alike. »

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

20 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (Insert Category) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn't to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19. How many Oscars has she taken home? »

Make No Mistake: Jerry Bruckheimer, Tom Cruise Want You to Know That This Whole Top Gun 2 Thing Is Getting Very Serious

27 January 2016 11:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In case you weren't buying into the Top Gun 2 hype, Jerry Bruckheimer wants you to know he just met with Tom Cruise in New Orleans to talk about it. Deadline reports that the producer's weekend visit was arranged to hash out a potential plot line. An unnamed source also told the site that the long-overdue sequel is "closer now to becoming real than it’s been in 30 years." The updates come months after a series of major plugs last summer, as well as a very confusing Val Kilmer Facebook post — both of which promised progress on a follow-up fans had heard rumors about for decades. Around the same time, it had also been revealed that Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li) was writing the script, with a definite spot for Maverick and a contemporary take on dogfighting.

Top Gun 2: Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer meet up

Could there be progress on Top Gun 2? Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer have certainly been chatting about it...

A small step forward perhaps, but maybe a notable one in the ongoing development of Top Gun 2. The last we heard on the project was when Val Kilmer posted he'd agreed to a role in the movie. That said, there's been little sign of the movie getting in front of cameras anytime soon.

Tom Cruise, for one, is now committed to finishing Jack Reacher 2, shooting Mission: Impossible 6 and then making The Mummy reboot. But it still sounds as though Top Gun 2 is an active project.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who of late has been working on Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, has given the latest update. And it's a simple one, confirming that he and Cruise have met up to discuss the Top Gun sequel. »
