After completing work of the latest MI movie, “Mission Impossible: Fallout”… it looks like Tom Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer and Paramount Pictures aren’t wasting any time on the upcoming “Top Gun” sequel and getting right to work on it right away. The next Top Gun movie is simply titled: “Top Gun: Maverick”.
The cast is unknown at this time and so far the only cast confirmed for this movie is, of course, Tom Cruise. I’m sure the film crew will start the casting while the movie is filming. This means that Tom is filming all the jet flying scenes first? That’s what it’s looking like to me.
Anyhow, I’m sure we’re going to see some familiar faces from the first movie. Will Val Kilmer come back as the Iceman? Hopefully. Will Kelly McGillis reprise her role as Charlie? Hopefully. I think those two needs to come back and it’s a possibility. Will Tom Skerritt return as the Viper? Who knows. We’ll just have to wait and find out.
I’m glad this movie is happening ’cause I love the first movie so much. I know Tom has a lot of haters out there but I never understood why. I think the man is an amazing actor, in my opinion. In fact, I am a huge fan and always has been. I’m not afraid to admit that I grew up watching his movies over the years of my life and you did too despite his Scientology beliefs. Love him or hate him all you want but he’s been in some good films over the years.
Can’t wait for Top Gun 2 and I’m sure they’ll do the film justice and make it more like the first one.
Tom Cruise the man himself did this interview with Access Hollywood and he gave us more details on the upcoming “Top Gun” sequel. He says the name of the movie is gonna be, “Top Gun: Maverick”.
Tom says that the next film is gonna have the same tone as the first one. It’s gonna be pretty much the same as the first. Same music. Same style. Everything. Yes, they’re gonna use the same music that was composed by Harold Faltermeyer.
So if you loved the first movie, don’t worry y’all, sounds like the film crew will not want to disappoint you at all. It’s gonna be a movie that Top Gun fans would want. It’ll have everything the jets and more flying like the first one.
Since Tom said that they will be bringing back the same music does that mean they’ll be using the “Anthem” theme song which is the main theme of the movie? (listen to song in video below).
While I’m glad a Top Gun sequel is happening and it’s going to be pretty similar to the first one, it’s still going to be slightly different ’cause why? Different director. Tony Scott was the one that made the film for what it is. Even if a different director tries to match Tony’s filming style, he won’t be able to do it. Each director has his own style.
One thing to think about though, will everyone from the first movie return for the sequel? Will it be a full-on reunion? Kelly McGillis coming back as Maverick’s girlfriend, Charlie? Tom Skerritt reprise his role as Viper? Val Kilmer coming back as Iceman? Hopefully. I think they all will probably return.
I hope they do a good job with the sequel ’cause if they do it right, I can see it being a huge box office hit. Top Gun was one of Tom’s best films. It’s a film that has been a part of all of our lives.
I wonder who the director is gonna be? Tony is gone so he won’t do it obviously. I’m sure they will find a director and hope they pick a good one.
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.
Yesterday, Jerry Bruckheimer posted a selfie with Tom Cruise on his twitter page. Jerry Bruckheimer was one of the producers of the first “Top Gun” movie which was directed by the Tony Scott. The first “Top Gun” movie was such a classic film and it’s definitely one of Tom’s best films in his career for sure. It looks like “Top Gun 2” is really gonna happen.
Who’s gonna be the director? If Tony Scott was still alive (RIP, btw), I’m sure he would have done it so so they’re gonna have find a different director. Hope they get somebody good. Will Tom be the lead as “Maverick” or is he just gonna have a small role? We’ll learn more soon. I hope Tom won’t just have a small role, he needs to be the lead. I also hope Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis reprises their roles too. Sure, Kelly McGillis is aging now but a reunion between Maverick and Charlie would be amazing.
Mr. Bruckheimer, if you want the “Top Gun” sequel to work and get everyone to love it… please bring back the “Anthem” theme as heard in the video below and bring back Berlin’s “Take My Breathe Away”. Make it more like a homage to the first movie would be badass.
