It sounds like a load of codswallop, but according to the ever-so-reliable British press (snigger), Tom Cruise may be getting back with Paramount â€“ didnâ€™t they boot from the lot!? â€“ for a â€œTop Gunâ€ sequel.
Cruise was first offered a â€œTop Gun 2â€ just after the release of the first film, but knocked it back immediately fearing itâ€™d be some sort of, er, Danger Zone.
Whatâ€™s different now? Well, I suppose one could say Cruise needs a hit â€“ something he hasnâ€™t had in a while, but is this really the way to go? He might as well star in â€œRiskier Businessâ€ and â€œCockail 2 : The Hangoverâ€ while heâ€™s at it. â€œTop Gunâ€ was a fun film, but groundbreaking? Worthy of a follow-up? Franchise-ready? No â€“ to all of those things.
“The idea is Maverick is at the Top Gun school as an instructor – and this time it is he who has to deal with a cocky new female pilotâ€, a source tells The Sun.
I donâ€™t detest the idea of a â€œTop Gunâ€ sequel â€“not when everything gets sequelized or prequelized eventually; sure beats a remake! â€“ but Iâ€™d think itâ€™d much more viable, and affordable, to simply have say, Val Kilmer reprise his role as Ice Man for the film. Thatâ€™d probably do well enough to warrant the cost of a few Jet Fighters. It’d probably generate just as much interest, too.
Apparently Cruise is yet to say â€œYesâ€ to the film, of which a script outline has already been written, and I doubt he ever will.
