We have rumblings this morning that a Top Gun 2 may be in the works…. starring Tom Cruise! We get the saucy scoop from our friends at cinematical:
According to those extremely reliable cats at The Sun, a script outline for Top Gun 2 is done and “movie bosses” want Cruise to star.
Apparently a source said this about the plot: “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 pilot.” Ooohh, original … and spicy! It’s like Karate Kid 4 meets A Really Big Paycheck for Tom Cruise! And yet … we’d all still see it. Why are we such suckers? We currently have no idea how real this rumor is, so for the time being I wouldn’t exactly break out into song and dance. Maybe it’ll happen, maybe it won’t.
In this film Maverick teaches his students how to prepare in the event of a UFO invasion against the forces of XENU!! He is a special operative with a dark past, a dirty secret. Eventually one of the students finds out that Mav is an alien abduction survivor and now spends his time preparing for revenge. Top Gun 2: The Wrath Of XENU!!!!
I would love for them to fight aliens in this film, but sadly we will probably have nothing half that cool. Remakes are getting needless, and a Top Gun 2 wreaks of desperate times for Cruise. I hope he doesn’t sign on for this one, because to get in that jet anew - you have to jump a shark.
International Friends - do any of you have any interest in seeing a Top Gun sequel? Or is it “Xenu or bust” for you too?
