Tom Cruise Reportedly Halts Production on Top Gun: Maverick So He Can Learn How To Fly a Fighter Jet

In typical Tom Cruise fashion, he has reportedly halted production of Top Gun: Maverick so that he could learn how to fly a fighter jet so he doesn’t have to fake it like he did in the first film.

Like he does in all of his films, he wants to perform the jet stunts himself so that he will make the stunts look as real as possible. This isn’t really surprising, after all he did learn to fly a helicopter for Mission: Impossible - Fallout. A fighter jet is a whole other beast, though!

I think Tom Cruise actually thinks that he’s death proof! Is he!? Maybe! Seriously though, how long is it going to take him to learn how to fly a fighter jet?

Top Gun: Maverick is currently shooting in San Diego with Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) at the helm.

Christopher McQuarrie Enters The Danger Zone For Top Gun: Maverick Script Rewrites

Mission: Impossible - Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie is teaming up with Tom Cruise again to help him with some script re-writes for Top Gun: Maverick. I guess the Danger Zone needs a little more danger, the kind that only Christopher McQuarrie can provide.

McQuarrie and Cruise have a long successful working relationship with each other so it doesn’t surprise me to see Cruise go to him for help. Cruise confirms with Empire, that this will be the tenth film that they’ve worked on together.

The script for the film was written by Peter Craig (12 Strong), Justin Marks (Counterpoint), and Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle). McQuarrie is helping rework parts of it that need the help.

Top Gun: Maverick is currently shooting in San Diego with Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) at the helm.

The sequel centers around Maverick who becomes a Top Gun flight instructor and Goose's son joins the program.

Tom Cruise is back on his motorcycle, wearing a bomber jacket, and rocking aviator sunglasses in these new two photos from the set of Top Gun: Maverick. It’s good to see that Pete "Maverick" Mitchell hasn’t chanced his style since the 80s.

Here’s Your First Look At The Digitally De-Aged Nick Fury In Captain Marvel

The journey towards believable digital de-ageing has been a bumpy one, that’s for sure.

From the variable results in David Fincher’s pioneering The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, to the uncanny valley creepiness of Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy and the weird rubbery Patrick Stewart in X-Men: The Last Stand, the outcomes haven’t always been fantastic. But Marvel Studios has consistently shown that they’re aiming to perfect the technology, with the young Tony Stark in Civil War working fine and Michael Douglas in Ant-Man practically perfect.

Now, it seems that Captain Marvel is set to take a big leap forward, with its younger Nick Fury looking completely believable (at least in the photo below). Possibly working in the studio’s favor is that there’s a wealth of source material to show what Samuel L. Jackson looked like in the 1990s and that he’s aged

Top Gun 2 Brings in Glen Powell After Initially Turning Him Down

Top Gun 2 Brings in Glen Powell After Initially Turning Him Down
Glen Powell has, in an interesting turn of events, joined the cast of Top Gun 2. The 29-year-old actor originally auditioned for the role of Goose's son in the long-awaited sequel. It came down to Glen Powell and Whiplash star Miles Teller. Ultimately, it was Teller who won the part. However, Powell managed to make an impression on the filmmakers and has been given a different role that has been specifically beefed up for him because the movie's producers wanted him in it. Not a bad consolation prize, it sounds like.

Having been passed on for Goose's son, details on Glen Powell's specific role in the sequel are being kept under wraps for the time being. However, he was given a role that was originally much smaller in the script but, because Tom Cruise, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and the studio executives were so impressed with his audition, they made the role more substantial.

Review: Escape Plan 2 (2018)

Truth be told many people were not clamouring for a sequel to the 2013 prison break actioner Escape Plan, which is not the most memorable entry in its genre but was a tough throwback to the ‘80s and ‘90s and famed as the first full feature teaming (save for their brief scenes in The Expendables franchise) of action icons Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film was effective, boasted some great action, performances and a generous cast, so hopefully a sequel could at least offer some more fun right? Oh so wrong!

Schwarzenegger wisely sidesteps a sequel which bares a few worrying signs that all is not well, including the fact it was shot and then shelved, only attaining a home video release in the States and that a third film is already filmed and on the way! Escape Plan 2 is a sequel that tries and fails to go bigger and forgets to go better.

Details haven't fully been fleshed out just yet, but Teller will be playing the protege of Tom Cruise's Maverick.

Three Actors Up For The Role of Goose's Son in Top Gun: Maverick

We previously learned that one of the main elements of the plot of Top Gun: Maverick would involve the son of Maverick's (Tom Cruise) co-pilot Goose (Anthony Edwards), who was killed in the first film. THR is now reporting that there are three actors who are up for the role and those actors include Nicholas Hoult (X-Men), Glen Powell (Everybody Wants Some) and Miles Teller (Thank You For Your Service).

These are all great actors and I'd be happy to see any one of them get the role. Goose's son is named Wrigley and these are the details about how the character will be utilized in the story:

Bringing Goose’s son into the film and into a relationship with Maverick is a bold step, but one that Cruise is banking on but not in the way some might think. From what we know, Goose’s son, Wrigley, and Maverick

The Rise Of Competetive eSports & Its Use In The Movies

What is eSports, and how new is it? Well, the term eSPorts refers to competitive video gaming in front of a crowd – an actual sport that has made millionaires from its biggest players. This industry is huge with tournaments going on all over the world – you can even bet on eSports via many outlets.

Here, we look at three times this emerging world has been featured in the movies.

The Wizard

The Wizard was a film that starred the then hot-property Fred Savage and also a very young Tobey Maguire (though he doesn’t speak at all).

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Begins Filming; Val Kilmer to Return

It seems that both Maverick and Iceman are set to fly again as the long-awaited sequel, ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘ has finally entered production! The sequel to 1986’s ‘Top Gun‘ has long faced development hell, not to mention the tragic death of the original’s director in Tony Scott back in 2012. Scott was originally set to return as director, but star Tom Cruise then enlisted ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Tron: Legacy‘ helmer Joseph Kosinski to step into the director’s chair. It felt like there wasn’t much movement on the film after this, but it seems that the film is back on track and currently filming.

Confirmed through both Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer‘s respective Twitter feeds, the duo celebrated the commencement of filming on the sequel with individual photos from the set. Check out the photos below:
