Tom Cruise confirms, “Top Gun 2” is happening and might start filming next year…

While promoting “The Mummy” overseas, Tom Cruise dropped the big news that “Top Gun 2” is definitely happening and Tom says it’ll probably start filming next year. Which is good news ’cause the first Top Gun film is definitely one of my favorite films of all time and it’s definitely one of Tom’s best films in his career.

The question is will the original cast reunite for the sequel? Kelly McGillis? Val Kilmer? Tom Skerritt? Skerritt needs to come back ’cause I would like to see the return of “Viper”!

Kelly McGillis is aging, she’s almost sixty now but I think a reunion between Maverick & Charlie would be so cool. She’s gotta come back!

I’m not into romantic movies much but “Top Gun” is good. I do have the first movie on BluRay finally. Picked it up last year.

RIP: Tony Scott 1944 – 2012

Today is a sad day for Hollywood, because legendary film maker, Tony Scott, committed suicide by jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in, Los Angeles. Now, most everyone have seen his flicks over the years with iconic films such as “Beverly Hills Cop II”, “Top Gun”, “Days of Thunder”, “The Last Boy Scout, “True Romance”, “Man on Fire”, “The Taking of Pelham 123”, “Crimson Tide”, “Enemy of the State”, etc. He has worked with Tom Cruise two times, and worked with Denzel Washington, 5 times.

Tony got his start in film making at the age of 16, when he starred in Ridley Scott’s short film, “Boy and Bicycle”. Tony then followed his brother’s footsteps in film directing after. Tony got his start in film directing doing TV commercials first through Ridley’s company, Ridley Scott’s Associates. Tony originally wanted to make documentaries first, but his brother Ridley, urged Tony to make films. In 1983, Tony had interest in adapting Anne Rice’s legendary vampire book, “Interview with the Vampire” to the big screen, but the film was already in development. So Tony made his directorial debut with the vampire film, “The Hunger” instead which stars David Bowie and Susan Sarandon.

Tony’s final projects before his death were he produced, “The A-Team” movie with Ridley, and he also was executive producer for “The Good Wife”. He also executive produced, a TV mini series called, “Coma”, which is set to air later this year. His final directed film was, “Unstoppable”, which starred Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Tony Scott was 68 years old, he is survived by his wife Donna and their two sons.
