Well the ‘Top Gun’ sequel was definitely going to happen, and then in August of 2012 director Tony Scott died at the age of 68 after jumping from a bridge in LA.
After that tragedy the sequel was put on hold, and seemed like it might never get made.
Now producer Jerry Bruckheimer has told Huffington Post he has taken over the project.
“We’ve been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we’re getting closer and closer,” Bruckheimer said. “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.”
The producer also let some plot details slip, “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. 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.”
Should ‘Top Gun 2’ be made or should the series be left alone? Let us know in the comments below.
