Top Gun 2

Matt

As if they hadn’t made enough crappy sequels, prequels, remakes and reboots, “Top Gun” director Tony Scott wants to bring back his 1980s Airforce action flick in a sequel called — you guessed it — “Top Gun 2.” 

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer at Paramount Pictures is on board, naturally, and Tom Cruise is seriously interested. I don’t think this would be his best opportunity at redeeming his career. Perhaps he should give up worshipping aliens, or whatever the hell scientology nuts believe. 

Scott told hitflix.com in an exclusive interview — and I could not make this up people — that he got the idea for “Top Gun 2” from a drunken, half asleep 20-something who told him about his job flying unmanned drones.

“It was funny, because I was on a plane actually coming back from Vegas, rock climbing in Red Rock, and the guy sitting next to me was all hung over,” Scott said in the interview. “He must have been in his late 20’s and he was one of these kids. He said, ‘I partied all night.’  And I said, ‘What do you do?’  ‘I work [with unmanned aircraft in] the Air Force.’  But they operate these drones like it’s war games, but it’s for real.”

So let me get this straight… you want to do a sequel to a movie about fighter pilots that’s about planes that don’t use fighter pilots. Well, that’s just brilliant! Sign me up for advanced tickets!

Scott’s next film, called “Unstoppable,” is about two men played by Denzel Washington and Chris Pine who are trying to stop a runaway train. That sounds about as compelling as seeing Ice Man and Maverick taking their shirts off and playing volleyball again — although I don’t think Val Kilmer is quite up to task these days. This is just another example of Hollywood lacking any creativity and grasping at very thin straws to turn a buck. Even the Nintendo game “Top Gun” sucked.

Here’s Quentin Tarantino’s take on Top Gun. Enjoy!

  1. Hey dont knock Unstoppable yet. It is getting rave reviews. I hope to see it over the weekend.
    Dont have much to say about Top gun except Tom Cruise was so young and cute in it. I’m not eager to see his old mug in a remake…

  2. Hey Ginger. You’re right, I should give it a chance first. But, based on the trailer, I wasn’t too thrilled.

  3. I can’t believe this sequel is happening. That clip is amazing!! Where’s it from??

  4. The original Top Gun is the only known PG rated gay porn film in history.

  5. The clips of Tarantino is from the 1994 movie Sleep with Me. Tarantino had this cameo. Not a great movie, but this was a very memorable scene…. maybe because it’s completely true.
